Figured out what the problem was with the bike. Stripped out the 3 bolts that hold the stator onto the stator cover.

ouch...at least it's a quick fix


I was trapping consistent 130mph, and couldn't beat a best ET of 12.002. I need to learn how to launch the bike





Does the drag strip count as a trackday?

Gotta work on a few things. Do you have a strap for the front end? Best I could do on my 600 was 11.00

No, that slip is my best time and I spun out of the hole and still lifted the front wheel. The 1/4 was a blast and you were right, I'll definitely be going back. Going to try to plan a1/4 mile night once a month now.

Thats how I ended up ditching the 600 for a Busa. Bought on Friday and hit the track on Sunday. Before you know it you end up with 12k in parts. LOL

If I was rich I'd have my bike for a street bike, a track bike, a drag bike, a stunt bike, and a Harley for long cruises. Since I'm just a regular Joe working class citizen my bike has to make due for all those purposes.
