Drop the pressure in the rear till it hooks. They have air there to refill it. Also, stay in the groove. You shouldn't be spinning in second. Especially on a Yamaha

What size you wear. There may be someone who has an extra jacket.

Do a few practice launches this week before the event. You got traction control, use it to get comfortable, then go all out at RPR

Drop to mid to low 20's as a starting point. That is a good starting point. 16 psi is where I usually run
