Smokinhawk......

Good job!

Just one thought..........The 12.2 can improve greatly. Let me know if you would like some help.

I know i got an altra soft take off. Since it was my first time at the track with my bike, Im learning to slip the clutch just right (I watched too many squids at that track pop the clutch and get slammed on their back). I got a little better practicing on the street for taking off. Just havent got back to the track to test it out.

What advice can you tell me then?

Being that you use the machine for street riding........Try the following @ the drag strip:

1) Learn to adjust your front and rear suspension settings differently for the track.
2) Correct rear tire pressure from "street" level to 24-27 psi for starters.
3) Purchase adjustable lowering links (dog bones) for the 6.
4) Purchase a lowering strap for the front end (Pingelonline.com)

This will be a "vast" improvement over the 12.2's currently being run. And YES..............I understand you are "green" with track racing / competition.

You need more just ask..........

YES........Softer "rebound" & "compression" for starters. Note the changes "pre" and "post" adjustments. Static sag should be between 3/4" to 1" (shock "pre load" spring).

This will reduce the "vertical" response of the machine under "hard" acceleration. CONTINUE LEARNING TO "SLIP-THE-CLUTCH".
