How did it go Sik? I would have been out there with you today but my sprockets and chain haven't arrived yet...can't drag race until I get them as my rear sprocket is toast.

Anyway I hope you try again soon, I will but don't run much in the Summer so hopefully next week.

I run the same bike and stock...not only that my bike has over 20k miles on it...if you show up when I'm there you can see how I launch and get some Ideas and I weigh over 200lbs suited....you will get there and have an advantage with your weight to go even faster over time....keep the Chin up ...practice practice practice that's why I keep trying stock

Don't run much in Summer?? Why not?
Probably now your best chance to score the elusive time.
Got the truck to solve the heat issues,
New Clutch,
New Sprockets & chain
Bike done 20k miles so it nicely settled.
Stuff yerself into the suit, chin up, dump clutch, pin it.
