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:im going to run my stock 04 tonight. never ran a bike before just lookin for a few tips.......thanx
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:i did very bad.... 11.1 everybody kept telling me not to wheelie so i choked off the line. didnt stall or anything but had a VERY bootsy start. next week il do better. im 6'2 an 140 so im thinkn low 10s with some more practice
yeah, one of them is my friend...just got a New zx10R 06 and good rider and got into the 9s with it extended fast after a few runs.....but your right not a good reference for a short wheelbase bike like we run. :wink::thumbsup:il be out there on wed for sure from now on. there were a few other 10s but they had extended swings so i couldnt realy use them as reference
Don't run much in Summer??:spit: Why not?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:
lol......as long as I know I can beat a bkkninja by summer I take a break. :heyyou::lol:...don't worry just messing keep the chin up :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 Sprockets & chain
Bike done 20k miles so it nicely settled.:thumbsup:
Stuff yerself into the suit, chin up, dump clutch, pin it.: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:im racing again tomorrow hope it will turn out better then last week... bluedevil, are you rolln out there?
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:ok for sure thanx for the drag racing 101. i buy all my stuff from suicycle also bill hooks it up! are you doing stock sprokets?
ccasion1hey 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.
