Im 155lbs. On a 08 Zx10r, my gearing right now is 17/42 (stock/up 1). Im am going through the traps at 151-152mph, but hitting the limiter just before the traps. My 60' is only a 1.68. What can I do to cut my 60' and not loose my mph. I am preparing for ama/prostar super sport, so it is stock wheel base. Thanks to anyone that can help me!!!

stock rear**
I don't think he's asking what the stock gearing is. Even though 39 isn't stock rear for the 08 I believe the stock rear is 41.

More seat time to get your 0-60ft times down, that's all I know besides going down 1 tooth in the front.

I am running the Shinko 003 U-soft. Also, I am stretched probably about 4"/5".

Ratfink seems the one to get advice from...1.50 60' at 190 lbs. at stock height...

Ratfink are you stretched?

the only way he is going to 60ft that good is with a bar on it !! there is no way you can get a 1.50 60ft a SWB bike at stk hight just ask the pro guys , they only run 1.50s and they are slamed stretched as far back as they can go (in the stk arm ) and flyweight pro riders

I have gone 1.58 with my set-up, but 1.50 with his set-up he has got to know something I don't? Maybe he is stretched, just not lowered? Or has bars like you stated?

lou, try gearing so that your axle is as far back as possible , and dont worry so much about the trap ,just shift it if you have to

What kind of 60', 1/8th (and mph), 1/4 (and mph) you running? Reason I ask is I see you're only +1 on the rear and crossing at the top of 4th.

On my stock gearing bike I run 10.8 @ 138 and I'm at 13,000-13,100 RPM going through the traps in third. I know the rear sprocket makes a small difference, I bet the difference in weight is the rest of the gear difference (I'm 300lbs in shorts/tshirt)...
