I agree with you!!What stood out most to me is that you weren't set at a launch RPM before the lights came down. I was watching the video waiting for you to give it some throttle and set yourself at your launch RPM(whatever it may be).
Waiting for the lights to drop and then revving up will probably give you problems with consistency, which is the name of the game here. You want to keep as many variables as consistent as you can.
I'm no professional or seasoned drag racer though... Just an observation.
This bike won't run through 1st and 2nd at wot without lifting. In 3rd and 4th I get some wobble out of the bars. Strapping it for sure at some point. Anyone have ideas about the rear set up. Stiffen/soften...??Buy a set of lowering straps for the front for like $20 bucks from your powersports dealer. Theyll lower the front as far down as you can pull them. That will help out a lot with the launch. But, if the front tire isnt even coming off the ground now...dont bother. Wait till you can launch hard enough to get it to come up then lower the bike. I launch my bike at 10.000 rpms and pretty much hover the front tire off the ground for about 30 feet.
As much preload as traction will allow, set the compression full soft, rebound in the middle. Your a little lighter than me so the bike will not transfer as much weight over the tire but this should get you in the ball park. Get a strap ASAP. You need it to get that throttle locked, believe me, its the only way to pick up the MPH you need.This bike won't run through 1st and 2nd at wot without lifting.
