I got my updated Snell 2015, reinstalled chain guard and they let me in. The bike was trapping nice even though the rider could use a lot of work
Best was 10.64 @ 142mph. It looks like I left about 1 second on the table?
Stock suspension no strap, stock ride height, stock swingarm
Stock motor (2011, 15K on it)
Gearing is -1, +2 (15/44)
520 conversion, aluminum Renthal
EK 3D GP 520 chain
FMF S-bend slip on
Gutted air tubes
ECU flash (mail order)
Dunlop Q3+ 120/60 180/55
Single brake mod, lightened rear rotor
1.25 gallons in it, 91 octane ethanol free.
I weighed 163 in my gear
Bike weighed 378
Altitude 600', temp 75-80F.
I got 7 runs but I was getting 2 second 60 foot every time
, even though I tried to be more aggressive with the launch. I recall
said he could get 1.6 with a stock bike and that is where I need to get. I launched at 6500-7000 so it wasnt bogging, wasnt sliding but not getting the wheel to float at all. I was just not letting the clutch out fast enough and I dont think I was getting it 100% wide open in 1st or maybe even 2nd.
The rest was good, no missed shifts, clutchless instant shifting was easy and consistent with this bike. I hit just below redline everytime, although I hear maybe I should shift a bit earlier? Very stable at high speed, no problem stopping with the single brake.
I guess I would rather have the consistent pansy launch problem rather than bogging or wheelie slamming. It was a lot of fun and now I know what I need to work on.
