went to 1/8th mile track for the first time with the zx10r

started out with 7.8 at 104mph, ended up with 7.21 at 113mph, 17/39 gearing, crap for clutch, and not so stealth riding wouldn't let me go any quicker lol.

I was short shifting to 2nd and the bike would only come alive at 10k rpm and that was pretty much at the finish line.

7.21

My first two trips to the track, 100% bone stock and still up in the air was [email protected] Two weeks in a row it ran 7.21, then lowered and -1 front sprocket I went 6.7's after some practice. Keep it up!

Been considering hitting up my local strip here, but I'm not too sure about an 1/8 mile track...done a bunch of 1/4 mile racing back home and that was awesome on a great track, but 1/8 mile just seems like it would be kind of boring so to speak...I mean, as soon as you get going it's time to stop...

Rev that bitch UPPPP, looks almost as if your taking off from a stop light. The more passes you get the better you will get. You can launch these 10s a hell of a lot harder than you think.

Just remember once you start launching at a higher rpm the most important thing is to be SMOOTH with the clutch, if you apply to much power at any point in the launch it will wheelie on you.

You can have a 1.9 60' and they bike can still wheelie if you start laughing slow and then apply to much clutch at the end of the launch, HOWEVER, you can also have a 1.5 60' and if your smooth with the whole clutch not have a wheelie.

I've had people tell me there launching as hard as they can without wheeling and I look at there time slips and there 60' is 1.8s, and its because they are really SLOW with the first half of the clutch and once they get rolling the dump the second half of the clutch and it wheelies.

You can be more aggressive with the first half of the clutch to get the bike moving and then slide the second half of the clutch to keep the power under control...

Ok now im rambling.....

You got it wrong my friend on the 1/8 there's little room for error, unlike the 1/4mi where you got room to make up for bad lights, wheel spin, wheelies, .etc.

Hellboy you got to get rid of the slipper clutch, if you get the inner clutch hub welded together it will be just as good if not better than the 1st gens. More gear will help if leave
