I made a few passes yesterday in NOT good air and swirling cross/headwind.With the Power Commander and filter install I was giving a few ZX14's a heck of a race through the 1/8 mile [email protected]. Best 1/4 was [email protected]
How do you get so low 60' times is your bike stretched & do you have the front srtaped:confused:

How do you strap the front end?

I'd love to run mine but I'd be afraid I would lose it trying to keep the front end planted on take-off.

You can buy a strap specifically for tying the front down.Brocks,Schnitz to name a few.Mine was only $28.Money well spent.Bolt on extensions where $175 ish from ebay.

I hope to take mine out to the 1/4 mile Saturday....Almost 100% positive

Im gonna give her an easy 5 passes..Check for wobble/launch/braking etc....Also I need a valve adjustment...So mild runs planned...

This strip Ive raced at is extremely sticky...Bike depending usually 4 grand drops or they stall....Im hoping for a 11.2 for my first z1000 attempt.....
Should be mid 70'z out but a weeks worth of rain prior...So the track is gonna be green and quicker on every pass....

I ran last night with the Z since it was bone stock a year ago. have to say that I was a bit upset. I was really hoping to break 6's but the best the bike would do is 7.02.....of course that's 1/8th mile time. and they had just put VHT down the entire track the day before!!!!

Really nice videos,that is a pretty neat old track.Where is it,what is the name of it?? I am guessing stock wheelbase and not lowered at all?? You can still come out alot hotter out of the hole.Never roll thru the water box with the front tire[2nd video].It doesn' take much to lock the front wheel and end up on your head.Thanks for sharing.

On a stock Z1000 at what rpm do you launch without going over backwards?

411 Dragway in Seymour TN. Yes it's stock wheel base, not lowered any. I am not a drag racer at all. lol I am a knee dragger. I will put up a pic on the bottom of this post. This is the first time since last june that I put it on the strip. As you can tell with the wet box issue. lol But when I did i didn't go through the water. that's why I backed into it. But I learned that I really didn't have to burn my tires up. I was getting just as good a launch without doing it.

underdog:
I can't really rember what RPM i was launching at last year when it was stock. But you shouldn't have to worry about looping it if you have good clutch control. Don't just dump it slip the clutch just a bit for a split second. And if the front end comes up a bit too high you have the clutch and or rear brake to bring it back down.

Cool, so it is like always. Give it as much juice as you dare and get ready!
I wished we would have run into each other during the 5 years I lived in Knoxville. Maybe nest trip out to visit the relitives we can get together and chat. I'll probably have a rental car since they closed the bike dealer that rented bikes but what the heck we can shoot a game of pool or two. :eek:ccasion:

Unless you know of a bike rental place??? I just don't think my bumm would make it all the way at my age I'd have to stop, a lot. Besides, I-15 to I-40 all the way Knoxville is boring and straight as an arrow for 2200 miles! I've done it 4 times by myself in a car and it sucks after the second time.
