What's up with the MPH differing so much? Second pass would have been good if it wouldn't have wheelied. What's your setup and how much do you weigh.

I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help keep the nose on the ground. I can lower it about half an inch more in the rear.

Something has been up with my track for well over a year now the ET is accurate but my MPH has been really down it can sway real easy and always low now. Thanks to 1killer it was confirmed it’s not my bike we had one run where we both crossed the finished line at the same time and had exactly 138mph had one run before Jeremy showed up did 10.1s @133mph I was so pissed until we got to race and then knew it wasn't the bike it's the track.

So today Jeremy was testing his New 08 Swing Arm I was testing what a Shinko Hook-up feels like and Brand New clutch, well almost….frictions/Judder Plate and aftermarket springs.

All I have to say is I love the HOOK-UP our track had NO PREP whatsoever even at the starting line and it rained for the last several days. In fact it may have Hooked to good getting to much Air :lol: but was glad I had it on…..also the clutch seemed much better than what I have been running for the last 2yrs :thumbsup:

I know how you guys love videos my 12yr old son took some Vids of our runs and ran into someone else I use to work with(member also) he posted a Vid on Youtube as well…here is a few will download the others shortly:

This was the best of the 3 Runs of the night(fastest too no cars that went faster than that :wink: ) by 1killer 10.05s good run Jeremy as this bike is very short now with the 08 Swing arm:



My first Run of the day before 1killer showed up I only did 4 runs 3 with 1killer:

Blood a good way to tell if your et is off or just MPH is to subtract your 1/8 mile time from your 1/4 Mike time. Also do the same thing for a timeslip that's shows good MPH.
