Man, nice jump off the line! Quick shifting and very smooth. Bike never looked out of control. Nice work.

Maybe go up 1-2 tooth on the rear and run it through 5th....Might help with the bog after the clutch comes in... This will help the ET some but the MPH is what it is...Thats not going to get any better....

There was hellacious head wind friday, that killed atleast 2 mph, maybe 3mph.

All in all the bike ran pretty good(with the exception of being 5-8 mph slower then it should be...:( ) and you rode pretty good....

After the rally you need to check the cams and valve adjustment and see if everything is ok, if it is, then need to get someone to play with cam degree numbers...

There was just a thread about this on one of the car forums... Low compression turbo motor, guy re-degreed his cam and it went from 130 psi to 150 psi just from redegreeing... Tested the same day.

That has got to be what is wrong with yours...

The shift points changed because I was trying to figure out if times were better with me crossing at the very top of 4th or shifting to 5th 30 yds from the line. Crossing in 5th proves to be faster. On my fastest pass, I shifted all gears a little earlier than usual. First gear was sketchy because my air shifter still does not work and I was having getting my feet up in time to foot shift to second. I can see that rpms suffered severely as a result of throwing the clutch out quickly. It was a good night. We could have easily made 20 passes had I wanted to hot lap the out of it. The hot laps were making the clutch slip too bad on the big end. You can see it happening in the video if you look hard enough. I'm not sure it shows in the vids I posted. I did not post all of the passes.
