Local track, 10.5 at 144mph with massive wheelstanding. Wheelie control my ass. And that was in first second and third. (-1 +1 Sprockets) Then the track got to much dew on it and was trying to wheel spin the Traction control working most of the track. Gotta lower this bitch before next race.

Took the new Gen 4 to track today and went [email protected] with a 1.5880 60'. Bike is lowered,swb,brocks shortmeg slip on,streetmap,stock lenght chain,no ballast,2 down up front,2 up on rear, 89 pump fuel, and ecu flashed by Don Guhl. 90 + degrees. Felt like clutch started slipping on last pass. Bike was trapping 149 pretty much all day until last pass. I weigh 181lbs suited. The bike is def making power!

My best was at LACR before they closed for good...:bs:

10.32 don't remember the MPH. No strap or setup.

My main problem was the front just wants to climb and the strip officials frown on that and will kick you out.

My funnest run was in retrospect a very bad idea, Old chevy(57) drag car with the works. I was waiting on the line when he lit it up to get his tires warmed up. My god it was a huge cloud and my body trembled...:eyecrazy:

He glanced over at me when he lined up and just had this sinister look on his face. This was the first car I had ever lined up against and did'nt really think about how dangerous this was...:hello:

Green means go apparently, I launched pretty good and started running through the gears he was way ahead. I passed him no more than a foot before the finish(I did not realize that at the time) I was going so much faster than him at that point, he must have been thinking WTF was that?

I had to take the second turnoff(missed the first one) and cruised back to the the timing booth. He waited at the first turn off for me to cruise by(I think he just wanted to get a good look at my machine)

I thought he had won until I grabbed my timing ticket and saw "WON" our times were within a tenth of a second.

As I cruised by the spectater stands everyone was standing and cheering. I guess they laughed as I did when he took off, then were shocked as I passed him with less than a second to spare. There is no way they could see the line, but I am sure when The announcer said Kawi in lane 2 won, there jaws dropped.

True story Bra...:spit:

I have never raced a car since on the strip...for safety reasons.

How are you keeping a stock wheelbase bike on the ground with -2 +2

Throttle control. I don't go wide open throttle soon as clutch out. I roll the throttle on or off according to what the front end is doing in 1st gear. Bike still wheelies but I just keep them low.

i run -2,+2 on the road. i can't be bothered to change it all the time and it helps me to get used to trying to keep the front down, that way when i lowered it for the strip it doesn't seem so uncontrollable!!
