Took my 14R to the track for the first time stretched this last weekend, and needless to say I'm VERY impressed. I said that I would be happy with 8.70's and extremely happy with 8.60's, and this thing almost went 50's on the first time out.
This is literally with just basic bolt ons. Swingarm sitting just under 69 inches, -1 front, Brocks Ti-winder, Guhl flash, lowered, strap, and 1000RR front fender. Stock shock, stock clutch, no pcv, no tune, no shifter.
My 3rd pass, and first pass it finally hooked, it went 8.72. After that every single pass that it hooked it went 8.70 somethin. I had a buddy take a video of the rear and I saw my shock wasn't working much at all, so I softened my compression a little more, and adjusted my clutch in a little more and BAM 8.61! Then backed it up with an 8.63 the next pass, but of course that was the last pass cause the track was closing.
I just can't believe it ran like it did. I was having traction issues but i'm still amazed!
Of course I didn't get a video of my 8.61 pass, but thankfully a buddy got my 8.63 pass. I'll take what i can get!
Of course on my best pass, the time slip was messed up and only showed my back half numbers, so I ran up in the tower and took a picture of the time sheet.
Here is my 8.63 pass :)
