My first time running a sport bike on the strip.
First my bikes set up. K+N street filter, Guhl flash, Bazaaz with tune from Evan Steele Performance, and M4 gp exhaust. Otherwise its stock with no changes to the street set up or wheel base. I was lower on fuel had about 95 miles on the tank and weighed the bike it was 416 on its own and I added 220lbs with gear. Went out to SIR in Tucson, AZ last night.
My first run was embarrassing off the line I didn't try to launch and it was like the bike was stuck in glue off the line then it finally took off and I ran a 12.8 at 130mph. Then I started working on my launches and it was still slow off the line no matter what I did my 60' times were all in the 2 second range. Id loose ground off the line then when the bike got into the powerband I was running people down and finishing just behind them. I was trying to launch at 6K rpm and be out of the clutch and full throttle by the time I crossed the tree. My bike just feels horrible off the line and it was crazy the jump people were getting on me. My buddy had a stock GSXR 1000 and wasn't launching and was still killing me off the line. The only way I beat him was my RT was decent every now and then. My best 1/4 was 11.517. I'll try to upload some slips. I'm on them as "car 900" or on my best I'm listed as red. I need to find another member that has a gen4 and let them run my bike to see if its me or if there is something wrong with the bike. It just seems way too slow off the line to be the gearing.
Ok I can't figure out how to upload from my phone I'll type my slips in a bit later.
