you need to practice and learn what you can handle . the higher the rpm you can safely handle without flippin the bike or losing tracktion is your best bet and that will be different for everyone.
Nice job. At your low weight, you should be able to get into the low 12's easily. I'm pulling just south of 200 lbs myself, the best I'll be able to do is mid 12's. It's been documented that an expert 136 lb rider got the bike into the high 11's.(Run 4)
May have been a bit higher, I'd have to look some more.Power drops off after 7k? ..
Sounds good, incase your not already doing it...in alot of the drag videos I've seen, most guys keep there feet off the pegs for the first 50 feet or so, to balance themselves; maybe that could improve your launch.I only shift at 10k or so RPM so it doesn't drop too far in between shifts. Def not tryin' to redline it. As far as the sweet spot goes, Nick, I'll be able to tell ya better Saturday. It's fun rippin' on it out of the hole, but the track is soo amazingly sticky the front end comes up even w/me slid all the way up over the tank. It's alright, I don't even know it 'till the tire touches back down. lol
Hmmm, when I mentioned that 6k seems good for me, maybe it's because I'm 190 lbs. I would indeed suspect a little lower might work better for smaller guys.6k rpm is just a bit much. when I'd try it at six the front end came up too much and I had to back out. Stupid wheelies made me run two 13sec passes. Seems for me the best rpm to launch is ~4.5-5k.
