Drag racing advice!! ZX12R!
I started riding last year and I finally stepped on the drag strip yesterday for the very first time. I ran 10.75 @ 138.5mph on my first pass and my best pass of the day was 10.588 @ 136.7mph. But im convinced the bike will run better since my launches were far from being perfect.
-Here is my question, how good will a bone stock ZX12R run at its full potential?
-And at what RPM's do you guys launch at? I was holding my rpm's steady in-between 3-4k... I personally think my biggest problem is letting the clutch go and get on the gas quick. I was pretty sloppy and im sure I lost time there.
-Also I was revving the bike all the way very near its 12500rpm red line in second and third gear. Some guy told me that I should have shifted early. He said that with my stock header power drops quickly at higher engine speeds. Is this true? Advice and tips would be greatly appreciated guys!
My 12R is pretty much stock except for K&N air filters and a Yoshi Slip on exhaust! (Stock header)
