Need some good tips in launching here. Everytime Ive ran at the track I havnt been doing 100% throttle off the line cause the damn thing just wheelied everywhere. Got a front strap now and shes alot more tame. Anywho I went to some back roads and started practicing today.
Basically no matter how slow and steady I feather the clutch it always seems to grab real hard (pop front end up) than it will settle back down, pop back up again (clutch appears to be in the same position just throttle backed off a tad), than towards the end of the clutch stroke it seems to grab REEEAL nice and smooth, than the tire breaks loose for a bit and off I go
These runs were about 85-90% throttle off the line i would guess. I think my clutch adjustment is all whacko and I would like to know the steps you guys do it in and check the adjustment
. It seems to start grabbing at about half stroke and all the way to the top. This is my conclusion anyways because my old ZX6R would launch like a bat out of hell compared to this beast.
Any other tips would be awesome. Ive been pussy footing this bike due to wheelie problems but the strap helps a TONNE, Best ET Ive had is a [email protected]
feet above sea level
, still pretty brutal times and this is with a 2.00 or 1.9ish 60 foots. I would like to be in the 1.6-1.7 range by this weekend by your help
