Good job, with that MPH you can go 9's no problem... you will learn that you can launch the bike alot harder than you think you can with some practice.. you have at least another .3 in your 60 foot alone. It takes alot of practice on a stock wheelbase bike.

How is your hook up (are you spinning)?? Could be a good or bad thing it depends on the rear tire. With an air shifter you should be in the 9s now. Rememeber it is all about the clutch hand!! More trod less clutch!!

On the Fast Orange One. Marvics Silverstone Gold Mag (lighter than Marshs), Full Akra Ti Hex, 14 Cals, PC3 with a bad ass map, Scotts, Pazzos, hell about 7k in aftermarket parts fast. So now you know I'm Floyd Money Mayweather fast!! Kanye taking the mic from Taylor Swift fast!! haha Just damn fast!!

There is plenty of hook, more of a problem of the front end wanting to go skyward. I havent been able to lock the throttle until im in 2nd.

You won't be able to lock the throttle until 2nd and not long then. Even if you had 4 to 6 inches lock the throttle in 1st would be a problem drag racing (10s are not super strong out of the hole. I think you are on an 08 which is good gearing modified to 16/43). Sounds like to me your problem is the clutch hand and rpms @ launch. Reaction time is everything in racing.. Let me look at time sheet again.

It your 60 foot and 330. Man you have a an shift!! You should be kicking a$$. Your R/T is not bad if you are fighting with wheelies lay on the bike and press!! This along will give you .5 to 1 second gain. What RPMs are launching at??

your reaction has nothing to do with your et. if you get that 60ft down into the 1.5s you will go mid nines no problem. just learn how to launch at wot using the clutch only to modulate front wheel rise....dont use the throttle. that should remain pinned. right kenny

Youre gettin there man! Definitely some good mph! I don't remember your setup. Is the front end strapped and or lowered? Keep practicing that launch and pushing it a little harder each time. A good idea is to have somebody video tape you. After a pass you can see that wheelie that felt like it was about to go over really wasn't that high. Definitely inspires confidence.
