New Personal Best But not expected with broke parts!!

Posted in the "Mark your Calender" thread I had alot of trouble with my bike getting ready for a Motorcycle only Drag Racing Event...here is what I posted:

The night before I wasn’t even sure if I would be able to race I needed to prep the bike the day before like adding my racing rim that has different gearing and other things like cleaning, removing license plate, straps etc etc.

During the prep I found my chain has a Tight Spot meaning when you turn the wheel on the rear stand it gets tight in a certain spot. Then I noticed my front tire was bald in the center I guess those 1k runs back and forth to LA wore it down fast and didn’t notice it Then I still needed a chain guard 18” long so had to fabricate something fast. Then fell victim to the famous slow down off the kickstand and the bike fell down and broke my shift peg in half….I was up to 1;30am to make the race where testing started at 10:00am. I swapped the pegs from right to left to at least have something, built a chain guard loosen the chain a lot to make sure that tight spot or what ever it was didn’t rob to much HP.

And to my surprised passed Tech got to do many runs with little problems(unless you count running out of gas on one of them and also got a New personal best today as well.

Thanks Cook yeah I was scrambling been waiting for this Event for so long and anything that can went wrong. I got a new personal though had family friends there even Madness came to our tent and we shared some good eating. ...but bottom line I tried my best to be able to race no matter what it took and made it happen.

Forgot to add the bike Fall Broke the Cluster Mounts(custom 2nd Gen Cluster on a 1st Gen) had to do a quick fix on that at the track but I engineered something to make it steady on the fly as well as I need that Analog Gauge no shift light that's what I am use to looking at.

What's up tone.r? .....no not going to get 9.50s at my weight but it is possible extended a little so I did around April somewhere between 4-6inches. I ran about 4 or 5 times at the track with it extended still launching like its a SWB but when I get it down the times will go down too. I am also thinking of trying it SWB again because I switched at the same time with more aggressive gearing not my street gearing plus a sticky tire not the street one I was using before... I want to see how that works out.
