Great Lakes Dragaway Times

Here is my fastest times at the drag strip. First runs on this bike.
I have a 2002 CBR600F4i, slip on M4 exhaust, sprockets down one up one, 520 Chain, K&N Air Filter.

Fastest 11.429 @ 123.72mph
2nd 11.483 @ 121.49mph

Fastest speed, one run at 130.75mph
2nd 124.58mph

Not to bad for my first time out. It is much different then launching and dragging on the streets.
Has anyone else ran lately?
What was your best time?
Any pointers for the next time I go?

Feels weird on a grippy track huh? It makes you realize how much your tire is really spinning on the street when the bike wants to pull up in the first 3 gears at the track.

You guys comparing Grove and Byron, its retarded. Its like comparing which crappy malt liqour is better. Colt 45 is better nooooo OE 40 is better. Both the tracks suck, but atleast at grove you can run after the sun goes down.

Groves surface has gotten alot better over the past few years... Byron however has stayed the same.

Times are gonna be close to the same whichever track you go to.. its all in how well you launch whatever your racing..

Chris, byron is downhill, but its not that much to make any differance.

Why not go to Route 66 with Shady? Great venue, what draws you guys to the other places if you say they are shitty? hell if we got enough of you guys together, we could set up a nice little area, recruit people, have rides there and make it like an event.... Shit 3000 plus members I am sure we could even put together a safety safari pit crew with golf cart to boot....

Shit, I am down.. Lets work on it over the Winter.......

Sponsors the whole bit but mainly just have fun and have a common get together...

Plenty of room and nice place too........

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

i have run all over the country...

Grove, Byron, Rt66, Rt41, Mephis, Edgewater, Columbus, Baltimore (forgot name), Milan, plus others i prolly forgot about already...

Grove is the place i have always posted my best 60' times... Granted i have WAY more runs there than any other place i listed. But its not a bad track, some people just need to learn how to drive

you're right, it's not a bad track i'm just not a big fan of the grove. every time
i go there i sit in an hour of bumper-to-bumper traffic on 94,fight with the tech guy,
then get maybe 6 runs.you can have the grove.
just becouse you go to a few tracks doesn't meen YOU know how to drive : o

Are you sure? I heard that too, but I also heard that's just a rumor about the shutdown. Also people say Byron is consistently 1/10th sec. faster than other tracks.

Anyone got a really big ball to test it out?!

nice time. i was about to go last week but i don't have a leathers. i was worried they wouldn't let me run. i heard that if you run over 130mph, then you need FULL leathers. how do you like gearing on your bike? i was thinking of changing the sprockets.

The gearing is great. The best investment you could make. I dont think going from 525 to 520 was the best choice. Mainly because if I want to go back to stock gearing I have to buy all new sprockets. I figure you start with 16 and 46, I bought 15 and 47. Think of the different combinations you would have if you kept the 525 and you only had to buy 2 new sprocekts.
But I do like the look of the RRP black rear sprocket and the gold chain.

I like Byron the best by far. (I've never drag-raced a bike, but taken my car there multiple times.) They have a very lax tech inspection, and used to even let me run my 12.xx car without a helmet. It's so much more convenient without all those required safety devices.
