Those are excellent times for a person just starting to race. I think there are a lot of gaps you are not disclosing ie. lowering, gearing, swb/lwb, etc. More details about your bike.

post a little more info to help us out. when i first started on my 10 i was running 10.60's just a slip on, stock height, wheelbase, etc... get some more practice and youll watch those times drop fast. your mph seems low. i think i was trapping high 130's-low 140's with stock setup. get some runs in and learn that clutch. 9's on a lowered/strapped stock motorcycle is possible with practice. :thumbsup:

seems like a good start. i would try a -1 front sprocket, theyre cheap and youll lower your gearing while adding a little bit of wheelbase in the stock arm. also, what RPM do you leave at?

A 525 chain is plenty strong for a 10R, even if it is stretched. Only if its a stripped, grudge bike with a BIG motor and large shot would you need a 530 setup. Just run a quality chain like an EK ZZZ and you'll be fine.

Your MPH does seem low, what is the altitude at that track? I've ran 138mph (113 in 1/8th) on my bone stock 2008 and I'm over 300lbs in gear.
