: New best for newbie on K5
08-24-2005, 04:14 PM
Tonight i went 10.34 @ 140.16 bouncing off the 3rd gear rev limiter. I had a 1.73 60ft, the bike has a strap pipe and powercommander but i do not have a custom map and I think i didnt gain much at all. But the strap helped me out alot. This is my first bike 4000 miles on it. Im happy for now, new tires and dyno tuning I feel i can hit 9s all day http://www.gixxer.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif.
PS: Im shortshifting first pretty good, and my rear tire is bald so i was baning the 3rd gear rev limiter before crossing the line.

Good job man. I just got back form the track today, and like you this is my first bike, and my very first time on the track... BUT my bke is bone stock, not even lowered at all and i ran a email@example.com MPH.. my 60 foot was 1.940... not too bad either but I wanted to run a 10.5

Why don't you go ahead and start shifting into 4th, you are gonna need to if you want to run 9's.
So your bike didn't feel any faster with the mods? I am still stock (strapped at the track), but that is about to change in a week or 2.

Good work man. I don't think I want to race you know...

I tried one run shifting into 4th, I went threw WOT at about 1200 rpms yet i lost 2 mph. I am very close, my slower runs I just barely made it in 3rd. Im sure if I ride out 1st more, I would have to shift into 4th. It felt like the bike felt slower with the pipe, maybe a lil better with the PC, my PC is also giving me a FI light for 3rd injector or something, they gave me a return number. I really want some dyno tuning now. My bike is stock height/strap tightened at track also.

Another thing I noticed...Applegarth mph in the 1/8th 116. Mine was only 109 !!!. I think I have alot left in the bike if I can ride out 1st.
08-25-2005, 08:15 AM
Yeah, I run 1st all the way out, that's probably where my gain is. Before I strapped the front I had to shortshift 1st. I launched around 5k rpm's and had to shift at 8-9k.
If this hurricane stays away from Georgia then I will go to the track tomorrow, I want to run a 9.8x run before I mod the bike.

how much do you weigh?
08-29-2005, 08:19 AM
I went to the track this past Friday. The temps are cooling down and I did notice a difference. I didn't get any better ET's though.
08-29-2005, 10:11 AM
hey you are beating me. best was a 10.4 lowered and straped. getting ready for a pc3 and a trc full system and a tre. what rpm were you launching at?
08-29-2005, 10:49 AM
his weight is 170 and he ran a 9.9... i weigh 185lbs and ran a 10.426.
But I know my bike can run in the 9s with me on it. I have to tuck better
08-29-2005, 03:39 PM
I am 165 as well. I have no idea what Im launching at. I think I am reving only to about 4 gs and then ripping to full throttle and sliping the clutch. I am extremely happy with my 1.7 I just need to work on top of first.
08-29-2005, 03:59 PM
Man when I rip my bike to full throttle in first my front tire is 1:00. that is even if it is strapped.
08-29-2005, 04:32 PM
I may be wrong, I do everything by feel, I dont look at the tach untill towards the end of 2nd gear.
08-29-2005, 05:03 PM
yeah i know what you mean.. when I first started out, I did not remember anything from the race. everything was just bunched together.
08-30-2005, 07:53 AM
I launch between 5-6k. If my rear tire spins then I will get in the 9's, if I hook the run is screwed becuase my front wheel is going straight up like it was shot out of a cannon. On runs like that I usually get 10.2-10.4.
08-30-2005, 09:16 AM
i have an 05 ...lowered,strapped,mirrors off,-1 in front,and u4 race gas....managed a firstname.lastname@example.org in the 8th...then went a email@example.com...i weigh 195lbs suited.....
i have now put a bmc race filter,a 520 chain conversion..will take it back to the 1/4 soon...and see if it will improve....
at my local track i have been a best of 6.42..so it has more in it ...the corrected elevation on the 1/4 mile passes was about 3500 feet
08-30-2005, 02:19 PM
what times do you run in the 8th? i dont have all the right gear for the 1/4 mile.. but could you post like the exact times you guys run in the 8th so i know where im at.. thanks a bunch
08-30-2005, 09:02 PM

08-31-2005, 06:01 AM

08-31-2005, 02:54 PM
im not even gonna hit a low 10 if i go to the track, looks like im too heavy. 270 with all the gear im guessing.
09-01-2005, 04:31 PM
