Hey, I got ya beat. I have a 01 R6 with a Micron slip on. No jet kit or anything yet. I've only got to make three passes down the 1/4 with her so far but here's a breakdown of my best time. R/T 1.099, 60 foot 1.824, 1/8 [email protected], 1/4 mile [email protected] Piss poor reaction time, with a little practice i'd say I could run in the high tens. 11.1 is about the average time for R6's from everything I've heard so you were doin pretty good. If you've got some time pm me about that nitrous I may like to give that a try sometime when i've got some $$$.

Sweet, just added you to my list. Anyway I usually bring it up to about 6-7 grand at the lights then feather out the clutch as fast as I can. 99.9% of the time I pop a wheelie, I try and keep it just skimming off the surface of the track. You don't want to be poppin 3 foot high wheelies. lol. That R/T can come way down, secret to that is launching before the light turns green. As soon as the last yellow light comes on I usually start to go. It's a dangerous game but I could consistently turn .55 .56 RT's when I had my F2. Super easy to redlight though.

A quicker reaction time will not yield a quicker 1/4 mile time. The timer starts when you break the light. You can sit there for ten minutes after the green light and still run 11's. Reaction times are for bracket racing. If you want to know how fast your bike is just take your time. Don't try for a quick reaction time.

well if you are lined up with another bike and you pull a good r/t, then usually in an 1/8 mile strip you will win

i have beat TONS of 750/1000cc bikes just by getting quick r/t

1/4 mile i will get ran down

9th pass

I need some of your guy's air , or I just need to get down to sea level. Up here in Denver the best run to date was a 11.575 1/4, 7.551 1/8, 1.930 60' with a .518 light. This run was on the brakes due to the bracket race I was in and I still need to get used to the new bike at the track this was only the 9th run.


Nice times guys,

Ride safe!

Still not bad times, It's harder to pull good times on the open classers cause you guys pull the front wheel so easy. All us R6 guys have to worry about is first, sometimes second.

Just need some air?

All I would like is some air, I've been racing for almost 4 years now so the launchs come pretty easy. Plus most of us out here that have been racing for a while use a strap on the front end to lower it. I have been playing around with rpms at the line, used to leave at 10g on my 600, but now I'm leaving at 8 to 8500 for now. I'm hitting the top of third threw the lights.


Ride safe!
