Dude that depends totally on you and what you are comfortable with. You have to take into account for many factors like how you operate your clutch, ability to control front end lift, etc. An rpm range that works for one person may not be good for you. My suggestion is to get out to the strip and start low and then gradually work your way up. Maybe some other busa owners can give better advice.

Do you have a clutch cushion kit and the back torque limiter removed?
Do you have a steel braided line and clutch slave sylinder support?
Typically on the Busa if there's no NOS, I'lll come out around 5000 rpm and feed the clutch, balancing between traction and keeping the bike on the ground.

bring the rr's up to about 55-6, pre-load the clutch, when the light goes green roll the throttle and slide the clutch, do not "dump" the clutch, do not snap the throttle. Remember roll and slide. You will get used to the launch and wont have to look at the tach, you can go by sound eventually.

get out just enough to get the front bout 6" off the ground.
i had my problems last year going to second gear. 10 passes and all 10 broke loose going into second. used differant shift points, should have removed more air from the reartire some. and being 100 degrees didn't help either.

if u wait to see the green light your smoked. gotta time it after the the second yellow to the green. half the fun is trying to get your light right.
if u race by yourself then green light don't mean squat. just get set and hammer it.
yo patrick, you launch the busa with your left foot on the pegs or on the ground?
think that if you want to get any good times u first need to invert the shift lever. i had fits getting my boot under the shifter before hitting rev limiter.

is that the instant green?
thought that the 2 yellows then green was a pro light?
will make it back out one of these days.
we like going to the 1/8th in angleton also. gives my v-max a fighting chance against MOST sportbikes.
later

Micheal,
With the busa I typically short shift first and then tuck in. After that I never let off the gas and just fan the clutch if it doesn't have an air shifter.
On one my brothers bikes we've got a slider clutch set up, which is sweet!
Josh,
What do you ride / times you run?

Blue: Please dont flip or try doing 5-6k off the bat man. You have a nice bike and take care of it. If your bent on trying just practice somewhere safe and where someone can call for help should somthing happen. People tend to over shoot their skill when they are in a group/or watched by people that do it all the time. And this is when people get hurt. when I was first coming into the scene with my car, I would go to beltway 8 and just practice dumping the clutch on my camaro. I dropped .2 seconds just from learnning what my ride can do. Be safe man, good luck and be safe, Practice makes perfect.

Train: A Pro Tree is instant green night/ With the Pro Tree the three ambers illuminate at the same instant with the green illuminating .4 seconds later. With the Sportsman Tree the three ambers march down in a .5 second sequence with the green illuminating .5 seconds after the third amber light.

Pat: Slider Clutch? How dose a slider clutch work?

You sure your not talking about a lock-up clutch like those from MTC? Best clutch there is IMO.

It's a little different than a lock up clutch.

Yea thanks Pat, figured it would have been an MTC product. Tony L. is a great guy, if they dont have it give them a call. They can custom build what your looking for.

I must agree with these guys. This has alot to do with your riding style, the type of race and how often you want to replace your clutch. When my bike was stock with stock clutch setup I got to where I could launch at 5K and feather the clutch but I also knew I was repalcing the clutches at the end of every race season. If you hit the strip every weekend you will be replacing them alot more than that. I say work up to where you feel comfortable. You cant start with great 60' and great R/T's all at once. Practice, practice, practice.
