    between mid 11's and 12's!but it extremely depents on the rider and the bike and how the settings are etc. most guys loose a lot of time at the start cause they dont know how to launch.a bigass wheelie at the start costs you a lot of time!and speed!

    The trick is getting those 1.8-1.9 60's bone stock it's possible and probable with experience... but, it probably won't happen the first few tries.

    My personal best is around 1.72 on a lowered 1000 leaving around 10,000 (I weigh close to 200 lbs

    I only got to make one pass (because I trapped 120mph+ without full leathers). This dumbass squid kid I know had told me the track was slick and scares him. So, I took it easy off the line and rolled out a 1.98 60'. Took 1st gear easy, rolling into the throttle. Shifted to 2nd, opened it up. 11.2 @ 124mph. Could have tucked a little more and DEFINITELY could have launched higher. The front was solidly on the ground the entire run. Ideally, you'll want to be about 6" to 12" up, with your weight on the bars & tank, WOT. A small wheelie is a product of speed. Speed is not a product of wheelies. So keep that relationship in mind. If you're going fast enough, you'll be unicycling. Don't try to do a wheelie, just let it happen as you launch harder and harder each time.

    My '98 was slow as hell when it was completely stock. But I'm sure your '92 can hack at least a high 11 with a good launch.

    I launch on the street at about 5000rpm. Hold at 5grand, green light, slip clutch & pin the throttle. The clutch is your friend, so modulate with it and not the throttle. Hacking at the throttle to keep from going over backwards is going to make for a choppy and inconsistent run. If the nose comes up too high, slip the clutch (not GRAB the clutch). Practice makes perfect, so make traffic lights into something beneficial and work on your launches at them.

    Going to the strip on the 16th with some friends. I'll have my ram air done, and most importantly, will be strapped.

    I just hope the clutch will hold.

    yeah, the 1/8th is kind of a tease, but I prefer it. It's 80% rider. You can cut a good light and beat a much larger machine because there isn't enough real estate for him to run you down

    I got an 11.3 my first night doing it, ever. (1/4 mile, before anyone starts talking shit... ) Stock 98 CBR900RR, very newb to it... Started the night in the 13s, got mid 12s, made a goal of getting into the 11s, and pulled it off. It was a very fun night. I don't remember my top speed off the top of my head, I have a scan of it somewhere, probably posted it on this board somewhere...

    My best on a 99. 11.1 @ 127mph. that was stock geared, stock swingarm. I would probably do a whole lot better now that I am geared. but haven't ever gotten back up to do it again since the gear change.

    And somewhere on here I did post up about the teathered dead man switch. You can piggy back it off of the stock kill switch. Worked like a dream!!!

    Laters.
    Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, cigar in one hand, beer in the other, body used up, totally worn-out and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
