Can't launch a 600 for the life of me

I don't know what it is with me but launching a 600 didn't agree with me. Tried everywhere from 6k to 10k rpms. Best 60 FT managed was. 2.0x. I know issue lies in feathering the clutch rpms just drop once I move. I don't have the slips in front of me but few 2.1,2.2 60s best pass managed was 11.2xx at 128. 100% stock bike down to stock filter and exhaust

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

try a 15 tooth upfront. Should be able to leave much much easier. You want to leave at 10k... not any less

More rpm, More clutch worked for me. My PB on bone stock 07 was 11.29 @ 128mph. I was also weighed around 235 pounds without gear at the time.

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

It's not that important to me to start changing parts for drag. I'm a circuit guy and just decided to take her to the strip.

Like I said I know the problem is with me and clutch work. Even leaving at 10k once I move my rpms drop to about 3k. I know it's my clutch work. Owell I guess times are not terriable for the first time with the 6

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

1 tooth off the front costs $25 tops. And it can still work in road racing unless youre at a really fast track that never sees below 2nd gear.

I'll give it a shot with gearing. Big change for me not launching a turbo bike without launch control lol. Got to love those good boxes

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

the best thing for launching will be lowering the bike. It wouldn't be too bad to just switch out links in the rear and strap the front end when going to the track. I'm 10.5's all stock with lowered rear and i'm going to strap the front this season along with a few other mods to hopefully get into the 9s....if it ever stops snowing up here so i can get my bike out...

what kinda 60' are you pulling on a lowered bike? 330? Strapping the front is hokey as the OP isnt going for fastest et...just wants to get to turn one fastest.
