Snigg you gotta get to a real racetrack one day soon. I've never dragged on a bike, but I used to ALOT in cars, and then I got into AutoX and it was so much more fun! Seriously, save up a little cash for a set of tires and trackday fees and get out there and do it! You won't regret it :D

dude, tell me you aren't running 14s on a literbike!!! now there's probably some kid with an Altima walking around saying his stock Altima with a fartcan can smoke a literbike.

you need more practice. You should be going 10.5 w/o a strap. If you are going to race, you might as well slip the hell out of that clutch. You pay to play. Otherwise you are going to be up on 1 wheel...

lol i knew someone would figure it out. i probably coulda broke into the 10s this time around but after i fucked up my 2nd run i was pissed. for the last two runs i cruised through first, shifted to 2nd and banged a nice stand up from before the 1/8 through the finish. im going back next wednesday i WILL get into the 10's. :lol

11.1 is pretty good snigg. Not bad at all.

Bill ran a 11.2 on the stock 9r last year :lol Best I did in one trip to the track was an 11.7 on the 636...but I know I cant get it closer to the 10's :dblthumb

I ran 11.10 on a friend's bone-stock F4i. Just need to launch well. Any 2000+ literbike should run mid-10's stock.

yeh i was expecting to hit mid 10's, on my first run this time i hit 11.1, which was my previous best. i have hardly any drag racing experience, 7 runs in my life. there was some guys on 03 954's running 10.3's. my 60' was 1.9 which is fairly decent. im hoping ot hit a 1.8 or 1.7 60' and break into the 10's. ah well, hopefully ill be back next week and give it a good run. those wheelies sure were fun though :lol

yea i suck at launching the 1kRR. first run 2.4, second run 2.3, third run 2.2 and forth run 2.1.

even slipping the clutch the bike would bogg off the line.

I need to get my 954 out to the track one of these days. I'm pretty sure I could hit low 11 or high 10. It has a full Arata exhaust with PCIII but the altitude would make it a bit slower than sea level.
