Questions about running my bike
I took my 01 GSXR 1k to the track a few times, and didn't run very good numbers. I know my biggest problem is that I am not launching the bike very hard, and slowly opening the throttle in 1st gear. I may not even be going WOT in 1st lol. My short times are anywhere 2.0-2.2.
Admittedly, I am a little afraid of the bike coming up on me in 1st gear. I know on the street it power wheelies at somewhere between 9 and 10k at anything over 1/2 throttle, but I've never ridden it out, I always shift as soon as it happens. I have a friend who has an 03 Gix 750, and he said to just stay in it and try to move my weight forward when it comes up, and it will just go back down. Is this true? Even being around 260, it doesn't really feel like my weight will have much impact on the power wheelie and it will just keep going up until I let off and/or shift.
The bike is stock length, geared +2, lowered 3" in front, 2" in back (can go to 4" drop, but tire rubs), K&N, Micron slip on and Yoshimura EMS.
