SV 650 Drag Racing

Well everyone, I'm about to head on down to Roswell to drag the bike for the first time. I've draged other bikes before so this is not my first time. Any guesses on what I'll run. Its at 3700ft elevation so that's gonna hurt a bit. I'll let you guys know tommorrow what I actually run. Wish me luck.

Okay, well here are the results as promised.
My best run of the night:

r/t .656
60ft 1.82
1/8th 7.774
1/8 mph 86.449
E.T. 12.378
mph 104.202

I ran a bunch of 12.4s and 12.5s.

I was only hoping for a 12.5 considering the altitude. With the 12.3 I'm only off the magazine numbers by 4 tenths. Pretty good for the first time draging the bike. I think the 60ft can be improved, keeping the front end down was very difficult.
There was also a GSX-R 1000 running and he was hitting consistant 10.7-10.8 at 133mph. He was having a very hard time off the line, with 2.2 60ft times.

It was a blast. My but is sore from riding 200miles there, racing, then riding 200miles back and not getting home til 3 a.m. . But it was deffinitly worth it. My buddies got some really good video, and I'll post a link to it as soon as its available.
