Wow.. All this talk of drag racing.. I know Im not the first but I have posted it up a few times about going to the drags and no one shows up but my buddies (and others that were already gonna go)

We could def use some more interest in this sport with everyone stuck on the twisties

Fine line. You have to get the timing down to let the clutch out at the same rate as the throttle goes up. Ideally very little slip and the front tire floats 6-8" off the ground thru 1st and 2nd.

Slipping your clutch is very controlable. The back tires is not the same way

Lets run 'em at the track.. Or are u too scared to burn out on ur purty red tires?

BTW I got ur money right here.

Honestly honey, it just takes practice. Go to HMP and watch those guys and girls (me and another chic) take off from the line. It's all about clutch and throttle control, and u slowing ur thought process down enough to compensate when & where necessary, but it takes time and practice to master it. I don't happen over night.

let's set some things straight...

1. I am fully aware of how controllable clutch slip is versus wheel spin. I was not saying spinning the wheels is the way to do it. I simply said I'd rather spin the tire a bit than slip the clutch too long.

2. Who said anything about being scared?

3. I left a LOT of those "purty" red tires on the concrete and do not have them anymore. (not that they were that great for traction anyway.)

But let's not make this a match... I'm not sure how you got all worked up, but this guy is trying to get some tips on launching a bike, not read about who you think can't ride.

Launching a hayabusa is a little bit more difficult then a 600 IMO, the clutch feels different some how to me.

Now see I differ in that, I feel like the busa is the cadillac of racing, u just blast outta the gate, especially if it's dropped and stretched. With smaller bikes, it's more of a challenge keeping em on the ground.

mostly cuz of how easy the front wheel comes up on a 1k.
To me the answer is yes, but I'm not a big busa fan.

They do, but I think the point i'm trying to make is they are a little more managable than on the smaller bikes, that are lighter and a lot more responsive to the slightest error in throttle control.

Just trying to get into the spirit of things :dontknow:

Need to get everyone to the 1/8 mile track. Cause u dont have to get a dang leather suit just to run a few.

BTW Practice is the name of the game here. U will get a good feel for it after a few times. My personal best is a 1.8 60' which isnt all that great but that was slipping the clutch as little as I could and hanging the front tire a few times..

I,ve made a pass or two in my days, street and track, and still blow one occasionally, does take lots of practice and btw some guys change clutches between rounds, I have raced on the same clutche literally for years, its all technique and practice, I can kill most guys off the line when I run often, but when I havent done it in awhile I look like a noob, lots of races are won on the start, havent raced all year, the first time I havent run sanctioned events in years, but I bet it wouldnt take long to get it back, I,m down for playing sometime, but my schedule is very busy these days
