trying to get more info before i kick my 10 off in a grave!! i had an epoxy port,cams,decked.012,thin gasket,sidewinder with no baffle and it seemed to not get any faster.whats the secret with these damn heads?
i spoke with Dwayne today and i believe he has pointed me in the right direction and put some things on the table i havent thought of.cam timing could def be an issue...esp seeing that Kawasaki recommends setting the 08 race cam to 110-111 i believe...dont hold me to that but i know its something like that.if thats the case i have it set for pure midrange wich offers my setup NOTHING.another thing is that in my head kawi didnt design the "race" cam for dragracing.this cam seems to be real strong in the midrange area put planes off in the top end.im also seeing my 330 numbers in the 5.7x range but after that its losing something somewhere.i know my 10 by the back of my hand and with every pass from the 60ft to the traps i can tell you what the bikes doing,so i def know where im at a power loss.taking the head off and doing another port is just throwing parts at it.Ryan Kallina did a outstanding job on my head...ive just got to figure out what cam package/ or magic # im looking for.thanks for everybodys opinion on thisI have a ported head. It really needs to be matched with the cams and motor to have the full package otherwise your just kinda slinging crap and hopefully something will stick. Dwayne at Cycle Concepts did my package and knows his stuff:thumbsup:
this means your throwing the clutch away,u have to slip the clutch if u wana see good 60fts and 330's.your right i was testing it trying diff things and if you throw it away u wont feel it but i launch hard and if i dont see a 1.36-1.38 every pass i might as well load it up because anything less just dont cut it :thumbsup:I drag my 08 all the time. Only had chatter problems when I was SWB and extremely slow on the clutch...
I'd say throw more timing at it as long as you're fuel will hold it. As for the clutch, I'm really happy with my 06 and I'd assume the 08 is pretty similar. Mine lasted all last season racing swb, w/ 1.58's and is still in the bike now. I have to relearn how to ride a long bike and have only cut a 1.51 with it as it sits now @ 62". It seems like the only time it chatters is during a dry hop.ok had a chance to go out last night,despite having some sir shifter issues i played with the tune a bit and didnt see results.on the last 2 passes i added 2 deg of timing and came to life!i believe its safe to add another 2 deg giving it +4 total.im gona try this setup fri night before i move the cams to 109/109....also anybody dragging the 08 10?i set one up for a guy and it seems to have the chatter issue like the zooks before a clutch mod,it has a diff steel setup in it thats causing this i think.im gona put a 04 setup in it tonight and see if it resolves the issue
