quarter mile time help!!

I have a 04 zx10 lowered strapped pc3 stretched 9 inches and geared 16/43. My fastest time at the track was 10.92. I weigh 215 suited. Guy ran my bike and ran a 10.20 weighing 175. And he said the bike bogged off the start. I'm thinking I need a bigger rear sprocket. Any ideas???

Give us a time slip with

60'
330'
1/8
1/8 mph
1000'
1/4
1/4 mph

We need to see numbers to help you, you should be running ALOT faster than that.

Where are you racing at?

Your 60' and mph are not good. You should easily be able to get 1.6 60', stock wheelbase I was 60'ing 1.71s. Gearing will help, but seat time will help even more.

With a 6 inch stretch my 60' are in the 1.52 range and my 330 is 4.0x.

Another problem is your mph, it should at LEAST be in the high 130s or low 140s.

yea you should runnin way faster times than that. your bike is capable of runnin 9's all day long. i would work on your 60 and 330 times to start and lookin at your trap speeds your mph is off alot. wat rpms are you launching at and wat rpms are you shifting at also ?

I wouldn't bother with the sprocket. To be honest, it may help a little but you have larger problems than gearing. Practice practice practice. Focus on getting that 60 and 330 down. If it bogs, slide the clutch longer.

Best 1/4mi ET: 8.98 @ 147 (stock motor, no turbo/nitrous)
