Start at 5,000 and work your way up. I was launching mine at 7500 when it was swb.

start low at like 3k and work your way up, you can get more aggressive at lower rpms and get out of the hole better and do less wear on the clutch. I launch at 6k and slip the clutch little more, also my bike is lowered and straped which helps a lot.

a good place to start is between 5-6k rpm. also do you have the front end strap ? if not get a strap it helps keep the front end down.

Thanks everyone for the input! I'm going in the morning. High of 68 degrees, bikes gonna run like a beast! It's not strapped, nor do I have lowering links. I'm gonna start at 3,000
I'd rather not go " too" crazy. That way I can get more aggressive on the throttle, than worry about riding out a 12 o'clock wheelie!! Lol
I'll keep this posted

3000 is to low...practice going full throttle from the start at 4k-5k by pulling in not letting out the clutch while you try...again try to go Full throttle quick..it can be scary on a light short wheelbase 1000 with alot of HP......but remember that monster that want's to bump you off has a off switch and that is called a clutch..pull the clutch in and all that HP is held back...not that simple but hope you get the idea and you will...you control how much HP to the wheel by how much you let the lever out or in...it goes fast and that's the practice part but over time you will get it. ...longer bikes don't worry about this so much as SWB all things being equal.


PS...I tell this to my 12yr old son on his first manual clutch dirt bike this as well it's the same principle.

I'd say start somewhere around 5-6k, I went all the way up to 9500 and backed down to about 8k at the end of running my bike swb.
