Re: Can't launch a 600 for the life of me

I setup a pretty cool launch map for 1st gear for our racer WildBill420, but if your problem is bogging vs wicked wheelies, it won't really help you out. Like you said, it's clutch work you need to work on.

I just dug up a few time slips. Not my fastest but:
60ft 1.7
330 4.55
1/8 6.87 @106.5
1000' 8.88 @121
1/4 10.59 @131

Last summer was my first time racing my bike and I didn't get to the track much because of work. I know there's still room for improvement with seat time.

Stock I could only get a 1.8 out of the bike for a short time. But saw a whole string of 6.9s in the 1/8. Changed out the front sprocket and got a 1.71 first pass & some 6.8s and 104mph. Im 200 in gear

I've dropped around 30 pounds since then but am no longer interested in going fast unless it is on the side of the tire... Street sucks too now I've found the track.

OP, I was leaving the line well above 10,000 rpm and riding/feathering the clutch half way through 1st gear. It was the only way to prevent bogging with my fat ass, and to beat my skinny mates on bigger bikes...

you got great et & mph. Im betting with a few minor tweaks you can get to 135. Few more psi in the front... shallow stage.

Specific changes for 1st gear only. No map switch.

Re: Can't launch a 600 for the life of me

Ant yes hit it on the head. Either bogging down hard like drops to like 3k rpms or picking the front wheel up a bit. It was really for fun I prefer my right and lefts but I for sure will go back to the strip soon

Also was getting crazy wobbles 3rd to 4th. Again my doing with the weight transfer during shifting

You need to feed that bitch some gas and work that clutch homeslice! Launch at like 12k and judiciously let the clutch out! Dont dump it, but 2.0 60's are all bad.

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

EDR Performance, because their fast is faster than everyone else's

Shifting you should not be moving anything other than you foot and right wrist, slightly. Go GP, preload the shifter, and ever so slightly blip the throttle. By third gear, you should be locked on around that gas tank and behind the bubble.
