Drag times? How did i do?

I think i did pretty good. This was my best run. I'd be really interested in how other people on a 600's compare. Honda's and other brands too. Stock 96 f3.

Reaction - .5850
60ft - 1.8887
330ft - 5.0810
1/8et - 7.73 @93.75

I'm not sure of the exact elevation but it is probably around 1000-1200 feet or so. That was only my second time to the strip also. I don't clutchless shift so that might make my time a little slower. I'm sure i'll go again. The way i figure it is that at only 35 bucks a time to go out its still cheaper than the track and I don't have all the gear i would need for the track either.

35*5 = 175+400 for new clutch and thats probably a bit high and assuming i don't replace it myself and i only get 5 times at the strip before i replace it is still only 575.

150*5 = 750 if i go to the track.

Plus it's pretty hard to wreck you bike going fast in a staight line vs entering a corner to fast.

I have about 50-60 runs on my 86' VFR750 at the drag strip and do ~8000 rpm launches...and I still havn't burned out my clutch. The bike has 23,000 miles on the original clutch as well. If you do burn out your clutch replace it with a carbon fiber kit from Barnett. It has slightly better friction and they last longer too, the Kevlar disks also have the same advantages but I'm not sure which is better in each respect.
You are doing real good for a 600 though. My 750 is a great strip bike unlike the 100lb lighter 600's and my best times are
1.767 60'
7.249 1/8th at 96.74
11.365 1/4 at 117.97 mph

HRC
Current ride:86'vfr750
Previous rides: 94'CR250, 81'CM400, 90'XR200, 78'RM125, 81'XR80

Keep up the good work!

BrianPhi.............Great "uncorrected" time for a newbie on a sportbike utilizing road racing "geometry"!

I have made 35 1/8mi runs with the zx9 Using clutch and no problems yet.best time is 7.51 @101mph. I know I can do much better and am still learning!we are almost at sealevel and it will be getting cooler at nite!! some of the guys hold throttle wide open once under way and dont use the clutch, guess they are using rev limiter? what is the best way to shift a stock bike(no air shifter) and what are the consequences of doing so ie damage or breakage of parts?

Rule of thumb..........It is BEST to use the clutch. Riders that "bang" the clutch off the rev limiter are just inviting costly trouble over time.

The time I previously posted..........7.15 @ 101, 1.674 60' IS A COMPETITION PASS USING THE CLUTCH.

Proficiency comes with much practice. Flawless clutch shifting is a mastered skill that any dedicated racer can attain. THIS IS WHAT I WILL SUGGEST TO YOU.........PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!

As for the parts..........As minor R&R as with clutch disks. Upwards to COMPLETE clutch R&R's.........Clutch basket, shift drum, shift forks, I/O gears, etc.. DON'T RISK IT.

BTW..........Anyone can ride/race clutchless. But you know you're good when you spank the livin' tar out of a "clutchless" rider when you use the clutch!

HOPE THIS HELPS!
