Well I went out to the track yesterday for the street legal drags. It was a lot of fun, lots of bikes and some sweet cars. Its more fun than the sanctioned races because you get more runs in. My best was disappointing though a 10.56 at 135mph, kinda sad when my best last year was a 10.20. I know on the right day and after more seat time I'll be in the 9s. It was pretty warm out and I was wheelie happy even lowered and strapped. I took my seat off and that helped some knocked off about a tenth. I think I might have to play with the suspension setting a little more. Any one have any tips or tricks they have learned? :dontknow: I need to work on my 60ft my best yesterday was 1.7sec:headshake A guy I know ran his '06 gsxr 1000 9.91 but he has more mods and seat time. My other buddy ran a 9.47 on his busa, :thumbsup: thats fast!
Do you think removing the secondaries would help much w/drag racing?

We used to do Pro Street Legal Motorcycle rules . . .

Do a google search & see what you get ?

We may do it again with MDRA ?

See how this year goes.

What's wrong with 1.7s in the 60? I did 9s with low 1.7s(on a un-prepped track) and my bike is basically stock from the show room floor.

Show your time slip and weight, that's something I would like to see, in fact we are getting many posting times these days with asking for help but no Time Slips and Information.

A time slip is necessary to evaluate as well as elevation and your weight, Mods etc.

As far as Secondaries why would you need to do that many and most run with them in and can get into the 9s very low or high...but they are in. :wink:

yeah I guess 1.7 sec 60ft isn't all bad but you can make up a lot of time there.
I'll scan and post my best time slip tomorrow. I weigh about 205-210lbs.

yeah, look at the 330 I weigh about the same as you, a Stock Wheelbase 1st GEN your not going to make up alot of time they're shorter than most 600cc bikes, you buddies running the gix is longer so don't compare there as well.:wink:

Look forward to your time slip though. :wink:

Time slips

Ok the first slip is from saturday, the second a similar one from last year. I had to down size them from the scan because they would not fit- some stuff missing but nothing important. Anyway, I am about 205lbs, it was about 80 degrees and 60-70% humidity. The bike- '04 zx10R 13k miles. pc3 custom mapped, full micron exhaust, -2 front sprocket, Pilot Powers, speedo healer, GIpro gear indicator, fan switch, rear adjustable links lowered 3", front triples lowered 1inch and strapped
removed mirrors, rear pegs, seat removed (just listed mods that help w/racing). Anything else I can do to compete better w/some of these guys w/more seat time?? :dontknow: w/o spending crazy money. I wanna go fast!
My starts are ok but I would like to lower the 60ft a bit and I am still pulling the front wheel in first slightly and sometimes going into 2nd :rolleyes: My best time from last year was 10.20ish and I know the temp was similar. I know 9s are possible- my buddy w/the busa ran a 10.02 on my bike on his 2nd pass! He is about 30-40lbs lighter though......?
Thanks for any help. :thumbsup:

I was in the O'rieley auto parts lane both slips
