Well got my fastest pass thanks to a great tail wind lol! Definitely nothing crazy. Bogged the shit out of the launch but made up for it on the big end. I think I could have gotten a 9.0-9.1 that day if it wasn't cut short due to an accident, and then someone oiling down the track. Overall I am happy, just wish I had a can of MR12 that day lol.

Not bad at all! What gear were you in when you crossed the line? 5th?
Honestly with you being abit bigger you may want to go more aggressive on the gearing. That will help you get off the line easier and there is still plenty of rpms and gearing with more gearing.

^I forgot to put down that I went -1 +5, so the gearing is 16/44. I am into 6th at around the 1000 foot mark on a good pass.

I am usually 1.5x 60's, just bog the launch on this pass. I tried to go harder a couple times, but ended up fighting wheelies. Still need to work on that clutch hand, but its getting better and more consistent.

I can't believe how quick these bikes are. Mine will be done in a couple weeks then off to the track to see what she'll run. Can't wait!!
