You got me.
Last year was my first year in dragracing.
This thing just wants to lift the front wheel all the time even with 5kg weight in front.
You didn't state in your initial post you were adding weight to the front that makes a difference too. ....doesn't matter good times. :thumbsup:

You are right.
With 2016 regulations I will have to remove it so all my next passes and times will be without extra weight in front.
What's your best time?

Actually 9.8s and as fast as 121mph in the 1/8 mile stock wheel base all foot shifting the 121mph was done with just a slip-on and NO Power Commander over 215lb rider, it's all listed in the spreadsheet in this thread :mrgreen:

I was mostly going that fast too but just before I stretched the bike and finally put a pipe and PC I started to up the speed because I was slipping the heck out of the clutch but letting out a little better before the bike wanted to wheelie....the 121mph I would say was the Perfect launch and showed what a SWB Gen 1 was capable of but pro star racers in the past did it all the time. :wink: :thumbsup:

What's really crazy when I grew up in the early 80s the Fastest Stock Bikes in the World were doing 120mph + in the Whole 1/4mile, so to do 120mph+ in half the distance showed how far Motorcycles have come and how fast a 1st Gen ZX10R REALLY is from the show room floor, I was basically stock just lowered, mild gearing, and strapped. :wink:

Yeah he reminds me of Ruthless Racing a Pro Star Champion not on the 10R but Ruthless told me in private it was the 1st Gen that made him better if you can ride that bike fast then the rest are easy... :rip: Ruthless my buddy and miss him. :sad:

You definitely know how to drive it.
My zx10r was easier to get of the line when it had only a pipe.
Tiforce full system and commander made it more aggressive.
The real problem came after headwork and now after 8500rpm it lifts the front wheel like crazy even in 2nd gear roll-on but I enjoy driving it on street, it has power everywere.:grin2:

-1+2 is pretty nice on SWB. Definitely gets out pretty good. The gearing helps with the looong first gear. -1 up front aint bad, but the extra gearing on the back helps tremendously.


Definitely follow ZX_racers advice, dude knows his way around these things .Fast as hell!
