Re: Post your pics/vids of what you take down the track
what i mean to say is a completely stock 08 g1K is running 10.20-9.80 depending on the rider and track.
how do you drop a full second off that without ever adding Hp to the bike? I just cannot see it.
i have heard many times that a tenth in the 60ft is two-three tenths in the 1/4. So you set up the bike to launch like hell and it nets 1.50 60ft? Thats 4-6 tenths in the 1/4. Where does the rest of the time come from, and the rest of the mph.
our 07 we built up after killing it. It made 189 on motor, and 231 on spray and I am sure could have reached high 8's had we had enough pass's on it, and got the clutch to be more progressive.
But at 231ho we are nearly 60hp more than stock...lol How do you run 8's with 160hp? I just cannot see it.
And if the hp says the same, then so will the mph generally.
If you are trappin 10mph better than stock then you have more power, either through N2O, motor work.....something.
I had a guy tell me his bike was stock motored, and come to find out when he spun a bearing and needed me to fix it it had a different cam, thinner head gasket, degreed cams, a pressurized fuel tank, a stock pump that was modded to deliver higher pressure...etc he had a 180+ HP "Stock" motor...lol
It's just hard for me to imagine 160hp mpropelling anything of 400lbs or more to 8's.
I took one of my friends to the track on his 08 1000. He is a beginner rider and this was his second time at the track. He went a best of 9.50 in the 1/4 with some coaching. The bike has more in it but he was a little hesitant to do what I was telling him to do. Another friend rode the same bike and went 9.20's on his first pass on a bike in years. Now these guys weigh about 160-180 lbs and the bike just had a pipe and arm.
The proper bike setup will allow you to slip the clutch enough to keep the RPMs up and will be long enough to not wheelie. If you are wheelieing you are losing time. I went from a +6" arm to 8" and went 2-3 tenths faster because I didn't wheelie.
The 230hp bike would go DEEP into the 8's possibly high 7's. But the key is getting it to launch. You were running a 2 stage lock up on it right??? That was killing you. If you would have run a multistage lock up or better yet a slider, then you would have seen some real times.
