hey guys, can anyone tell me how to control first gear? i want to start doing drag racing but it seems every time i open up in 1st my front wheel comes up, and i end up letting off the throttle not to loop

this kills my drag time...

and cant really drag from a roll to do this in second


any advice?

if by feather the clutch you mean let it out slowly i do, other then then i dont know what you mean by feather the clutch...

but once i hit 8k rpms, the front wheel comes up... not sure about my 60' time, but my 1/4 mile was 12.43, should be mid 11's!

Once the wheel feels like it's lifting pull the clutch in slightly to allow a little slippage. This lets you keep accelerating, but controlls the front better than letting off.

Another option is a swingarm extension. Not a fan of them, but they work for drag racing.
