Unhappy quest for tens denied

well updte i dint get tens
but i got a little better. i think the track was to cold to hook best 60' i got was a 1.903 and had a lot of 2.0's


r/t .586
60' 1.903
330' 4.881
1/8 7.307
mph 101.08
1000' 9.402
1/4 11.210
mph 124.44

got ticked, i wanted tens stock, but just couldnt do it, i ended up making 23 passes, all but 4 were 11's (thanks to missed shifts and one screwed up launch)

looks like ill be adding mods for my quest of tens, though i really want to know how to do a solid 1.8 sixty
video to come soon

Countershaft Sprock Size ?
Rear Sprocket Size ?

Sounds as if your suspension is set now. Without going into the motor or adding NOS or other unnecessary items. GEARING is the next step to breaking the 10.999 barrier!

sprokets are stock,
ive seen somebody take a bike just like mine and stock just like mine and get a 10.75, how i dont know.

i was hoping to get some 1.8s. i was launching at 10k rpm, tried 12k, but had better luck with 10k

Next season im getting a dampner, pipe, PC3.
now im thinking of doing a 520 conversion and going up a few teeth in the back (next step up)
i dont want to go up much just a little.
either the sproket or might try some n2o

how much do you think going up in the back will help me out?

This other R6.........Are you sure it was stock?

If it were........I would say that pass was with a very experienced racer.

What gear are you in when you cross the line?

Would you feel comfortable with -2 on the countershaft?

The -2 should provide .1 - .25 seconds from the E/T. It will take some getting use to though.

as far as i could tell it was stock, pipe and gearing lookied like mine. no straps and stock height.
The guy who owned the bike (not the rider), said he was dragging bikes since he was little, he was a kid in his early 20's, he weighed about 130, while i weigh about 160. THe owner could only get a [email protected], so yea i think that guy could ride.

Im crossing the traps just after i shift to 4th, sometimes if my MPH is low then i leave it in 3rd, but i have hit the rev limiter a few times before i cross. the speedo is indicating about 130.

if i do change my gearing i dont want to go to radical, in the summer i use this as a daily driver, putting on 400-500 miles a week typically, it cruises at 55mph at about 5000rpm so i dont want to be doing like 6k or something, that and i like the 50mpg saves me alot of money compared to when i drive my car.
thats why i was just thinking of going up 2 in the rear


video is poor, they focus on the neon im racing, who literally sits there for 3 seconds, but a pretty quick neon running 12.2s

60 foot is where you can shave off some time. When I'm at 1.9 to 60' there is no way I'm hittin 10's.

Here's a high 10 for ya so maybe you can figure something out.

Reaction .638
60 foot 1.815
ET 10.955
MPh 128.744

I am geared but I'm sure I could get 10's with only 2up on the rear sprocket. Also what rpm are you launching at? I would work on those 60 foot times. If you can get your 60 foot down to 1.6 or 1.7 with stock gearing you should hit 10's.

i was launching at 10k
if i let the clutch out any faster i would pull the front wheel up instead of going forward, so im a bit sure how much i can 60' better, im sure i can squeeze a little more out but i dont know if i can do a low 1.8

my 60' have improved alot this summer, even on the street.
My freind who was a HD nightrain used to always 60' better then me till i pull him up top, maybe from the torque he has down low and his bike not being able to wheelie. but now i can 60' better then him by a good bit.

1) Launching 8,000-10,000 R's
2) Suspension Set
3) Maintaining "Nose-Down" Attitude

Your 60' times will improve with changes to your gearing. Invest in a -1 & -2 countershaft sprocket. Start with the -1 then graduate to the -2.

The -1 counter is the typical sprocket found in "quick accel" kits.

On my 02 gsxr750 I went one down on front.Really like the change.It also gave my bike a slightly longer wheelbase.I run my bike at a local 1/8th mile track.Bike is all stock(except the sprocket) I have not lowered air pressure in rear tire or messed with any of the suspension.I ride it to the track ,race and ride it back home.My best time has been a [email protected] 105.Mostly I run times in the 7.00's.The hardest part is the launch.Sometimes I feel like I really left hard but when I get my slip my time is not that great.(guess I spin the tire).
Next year I am going to try lowering tire pressure some see if it makes a difference.Read somewhere that setting the front suspension loose makes bike harder to wheelie.
My 60' times are always 1.8's Seems the harder I try to get to the 1.7's the worse they get.
But next year I will try again.
