Wrong forum. Try this one.

It all goes back together the way it came apart...unless it came apart at redline!

Usually have the rpms up to 6-7K and the second the flag tip moves, dump the clutch.

R's at 5k aggressively sliding the clutch while pinning the gas, to float the front wheel just skimming the pavement.

Like mentioned above, rev it to at least 6000 for a 600cc bike. Let the clutch most of the way out then feather it to balance either wheel spin or lifting the front end. You'll probably feather the clutch all the way through first gear to redline... lif the throttle for a instant and toe up 2nd.... to 500 RPM short of redline, then 3rd.

You really can't put an rpm on it because it differs for every bike. Basically you want to find that healthy medium where you're front tire is probably going to be airborn a few inches, but not so much that it's slowing you down. I don't have any timeslips in front of me but that was good for a few 1.7x's on my F3.

First I will Get lined up in the pre-stage, take a deep breath and clear my mind, Take one last auditory and sensory check of the bike to make sure everything is still working properly. Then just befroe I roll forward with my left thumb I thumb the control and skip to "kickstart my heart" on the the cd player then roll forward trip the lights, when the green light comes on I let the clutch out and roll through the gears with my feet on the highway pegs and trying not to spill my beer.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

No only after the launch cause you need your clutch hand free after that you can blip your upshifts.
