Check the gearing ratios of transmission and sprockets in both scenarios and you'll see it's within 5% difference in the two. You're welcome.


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

How about you check on that for me since you seem to know what you're talking about.

That's a substantial difference on a quarter mile strip. That doesn't help your argument.

I said 5% difference. Trap speed almost identical.

the clutch is what is commanding the power to the rear wheel, not the throttle.

because you're starting at a higher RPM and you're slipping it to hold the RPMs up, you wont bog like you're doing now.



work you way up to this by the way.. if you just dump the clutch at RPM it will shoot out from under you.. like the vid of the guy hitting the timing tree with his bike. lol.


its harder to explain then do.. you'll get the hang of it.. remember, we have WET clutches.. they're cooled in oil.. you can slip them a decent bit with very little wear.
Tried this fire the first time tonight at the warehouse. Forgot to nail the gas as the RPMs started dying down lol so the bike lurched forward a bit then died. I'm going to try this again tomorrow.
