New times on the 06 at the strip
Got out to the 1/4 mile strip tonight again on the 06 now that im healed up from my lowside. Got 24 runs in (lol) in about 3 hours. First off I have -1 +2 sprockets and a strap. Started off launching at 12k rpm and wasnt happy with the times (mid 11s) and the top of 1st was feeling really shaky. Well about 15 runs in some of the other bike guys realized my chain was really loose and was probably slipping at the top of 1st. So we tightened it and it was amazing. Started launching at 8k and Kept dropping tenths and ended up with a best of 10.9@ 127 on a 1.85 60 foot.
Im very pleased i got into the 10s even though i know the bike is faster than that. Seriously I applaud any of you out there who drag your 06s, because they seriously have the worst powerband for drag racing ever. I dont know how the hell some of the magazines ran 10.5 with this stock, its just so difficult to launch the bike hard without bogging down the engine and getting out of the very narrow sweet spot on your powerband.
sprockets, speedo healer, puig double bubble, sliders, clear alternatives tail, and a few little extras
