off to the strip tonight

Planning on taking my new 2013 zx10r out to the strip tonight which is completely stock at the moment to see what it does as a starting point before the mods start to happen.

Any tips on what sort of rpm to launch at and weather or not to use traction control if so what setting to use.
Also whats the average sort of times for a completely stock bike.

I previously had a 2011 R1 that had the standard length swingarm on and also had -1 +2 with a tune and had the front strapped. I found launching this at around 4500 - 5000 rpm was its sweet spot.

Will post times when I get home or through out the night.

I launch at around 6k but I'm no pro. In stock form the bike is slow off the line youve really gotta work with the clutch to keep the rpms up. I never had mine to the strip stock and had never had a sport bike on the strip before so I'm constantly improving still. I'm at 3,500ft and running 10.7's now. At the track I go to that's what busas with similar mods are running but they are lowered mine is still stock height.

Well I just got home from the strip I had 12 runs and the best for the night. My best time ended up being a 10.455 @144.95mph and my Best mph hour for the night was 146.11mph. My best 60ft time was 1.934.
I think it did alright with the bike being stock.
Now for the mods to start and see how I cam progress

Thanks guys.
I reckon I could get it down a little more if I took it out again soon.
The elevation is roughly between 160ft and 190ft and I weigh 83kg or 183 lbs.

last year I had my r1 out at the strip quite abit but this is only the 3rd time out this year And first time on the zx.

With the R1 the best i got was was a 9.928 @144.xx MPH.
That was with 1 down 2 up on the sprockets ,520 chain conversion ,custom tune, quick shifter, and lowering straps on the front.

Tonight i managed to get a new p.b on the zx10 and that was a 10.228 @ 145 MPH. Ive only got -1 +2 sprockets, yoshi 3/4 exhaust and a tune that was from someone else bike.( running abit on the rich side down low).

So far i am liking the change very muchly. i have no regrets at all going from the r1 to the zx10
