Still cant clutch it
Background. 03 z1000 +muzzy 4-1, k&n, pc3, +2 rear, -1 front. In other words the bike should have no problem wheelying from here till next week.
I can bring it up by snapping the throttle in first, but by the time it lift, I am at around 8-10krpm and controlling it is difficult. The bike also lifts the front in 1st-3rd under WOT. not much in 3rd, but in first i comes up about a foot coming out of corners at 80% WOT.
However I cant seem to get far by trying it with the clutch. best results I have so far are when rolling at around 2mph, pull the clutch all the way give it 2-3 revs and then dump as the rpms are coming down of the last rev. When I try at abit higher speed (25-35) by pulling the clutch halfway and reving up, I cant seem to get more then an inch, and thats only if i'm lucky.
1. whats the best rpm to bring it to? the engine puts pretty serious power at 7krpm, so do i need to be in the 6k region or go all the way up to 10k? (redline is 12.5k)
2. Do I dump the clutch, or feather it in quickly? by dumping i mean let go of the lever, which will leave me without the safety of pulling it back in. (of course there is still the back brake)
3. Do I have to pull the clutch in only halfway, or can I go ahead and bring it in all the way? (My left hand is starting to get pretty damn sore from practicing)
4.What has the most control over the initial lift speed? Rev's, Throttle, or clutch speed?
Any other tips would be great.
