How did it go Sik? I would have been out there with you today but my sprockets and chain haven't arrived yet...can't drag race until I get them as my rear sprocket is toast.:badteeth:

Anyway I hope you try again soon, I will but don't run much in the Summer so hopefully next week.:thumbsup:

I run the same bike and stock...not only that my bike has over 20k miles on it...if you show up when I'm there you can see how I launch and get some Ideas and I weigh over 200lbs suited....you will get there and have an advantage with your weight to go even faster over time....keep the Chin up ...practice practice practice that's why I keep trying stock :thumbsup:

Don't run much in Summer??:spit: Why not?
Probably now your best chance to score the elusive time.
Got the truck to solve the heat issues,
New Clutch,
New Sprockets & chain
Bike done 20k miles so it nicely settled.:thumbsup:

Man, I'm so pissed today. I ordered a rear Sprocket from Suicycle last week. They said my rear sprocket should come in before Wed. this week and find out it's on back order. The owner is awesome and they have great prices(got my New DID ERV3 chain Gold 120 links for $135) but they missed the ball on the rear sprocket it's now back order so have to cancel and try to find one tomorrow but I doubt I will find one in town :headshake:badteeth:

Sorry for the rant but was looking foward to ride on Wed. because the weather should be great so as it stands now I won't be there...Good luck and remember to slip that clutch. The front wheel coming up a little in first gear is ok but try to get full throttle as much as you can in first gear and hit 2nd fast. After that it gets so much easier if you hit your shift points:thumbsup:

No I run 520 Vortex 16T/+40T..if I can find a 40T tomorrow in a 520 flavor I may still come out...yes I forget his name but if it's Bill he looks at MSRP...he looked up the chain and said it's $185 MSRP I will hook you up for$135 I want your business. :thumbsup:

hey guys! ran my personal best today--10.46 @ 139 mph. Of course it doesn't even compare to the 9.81 @ 141.9 mph that my hubby Ira ran on Wed. I still gotta work on my 60' I don't know why I am having such a hard time launching this bike but it is definitely different the ZX7R w/hydraulic clutch.

Hope to see you guys out this Wed!



Oh and I met a great guy last week. His name was Richard Sims. He has a shop a couple hours north of Sacramento and he happened to have Troy Jackson and his turbo zx12r in the shop. I will tell you all about at the track next time you come out.

:eek:ccasion1

Awesome for IRA as well :thumbsup: I knew when IRA ran that bike for the first time after that he will get much lower...he is becoming awesome on launch and not only that, with that time he is right there with those stretched ZX14s for times out there. :wink::cool::thumbsup:

Hope to see you guys soon at the track.

Rick
