I'm taking my bike to the Drag Strip

You heard it right folks

The 600rr is going to be making a debut at the track on October 30th.

So any suggestions here people, sad my first track day is gonna be a 1/4 track, but it should be fun

I'm taking the car there too, now only to find out which one is faster, lol

Okay, I'll help you out...

Don't dump the clutch, feather it out and keep your RPM's about 9 ks....
When I launch I come outta the hole at about 8500-9000 rpm (any more and she gets the front end up), then I come of the clutch fairly quickly while rolling the throttle on hard, I'm usually wide open by 3/4 clutch release. Not enough gas (rpm) and too quick a clutch release= engine bog (you feel it get slower in the seat of your pants), too much rpm and a quick clutch release and you get a wheelie or wheel spin. Anytime you let the clutch out to slow your only wasting precious time.

Get the balance right and you should blast away from the starting line (maybe hang the front an inch or so) and progressively feel it pull harder as you let of the clutch/increase the throttle. You should hook up at about 11,000 rpms (which is the beginning of the powerband) place your feet on the pegs and get ready to shift the rest of the way.

Just a small note.

FRAME SLIDERS.

You'll never know when things can go wrong. Besides uppon track days I get to excited and tend to do spupid mistakes and rider harder. So the risk of colision increases. IMO the FS can help you to save a lot of money.

Practice "launching" your bike.. I saw a guy on a brand new R6 a few months ago lift his off like a fighter jet from the line. Thing went about 15 feet straight up in the air. I was sick at my stomach seeing the bike land and then slide 100 feet down the track. As said before don't dump the clutch..... Rider hobbled away on a hurt ankle but was fine later.

APEX JUNKIE!!!!

Drag racing won't tell you how fast your bike is, but rather how good or bad you can ride it.. See if someone can snap some pics when you're launching.

Good luck, I took mine to the local 1/8th mile track the first weekend I picked up my RR because thats where alot of my friends hang out and they conned me into running it lol, and I only got to make 2 passes and my best was a 7.60 at 97mph. I knew it has more in it with the mph because I took my ole F2 the week before I sold it to the drag strip and ran a 7.70 at 90 mph lol.

Best of luck man and let us know how it goes...

i agree with the above post. launch around 9k but don't just drop the clutch or be prepared for a ride. my best time ever was 11.01 at 128.XX at san antonio raceway (1/4 mile). anyways, just give it your best and CYA.

later

I took mine and I've only been riding a few months and it was my first time at the track.I ran a 11.5 @ 125mph. I thought that was good. It was on a pro tree which I don't like so I didn't care about reaction time it don't affect your time. I only ran two time cause if you trap over 120mph you have to have full leathers. I have a LS1 also what Cam you got in that beast?

Good to hear, hopefully i can beat a few cars here, lol

I have frame sliders, I'm gonna take off the side fairings and just install them like that.

Also 8K rpms? Seems a bit high, but i'll try it on the street tomorrow

Should i shoot for the 10's, if so, that'd be crazy, I only weight about 145lbs, so we'll see
