    Nice reaction time!!! From looking at the 60' looks like you had some wheelie issues. Did you have fun?

    It wasn't so much a wheelie issue, I carried the front 3-4" all the way to my gear shift. It was more a clutch issue. I think I rode the clutch just a tiny bit too long.
    On my first pass I had a BIG wheelie issue, I carried the front about 2' up damn near 1/8th of a mile. I never backed off the gas though, just held the wheelie with the clutch and body position. I ran a 10.9963 @ 134.01 on that pass, with a 1.8673 60'.

    Nice times! great RT!
    Do you tie down the front? What I believe they call "Slammed"?

    Nope, stock height, stock wheelbase, just a slip-on exhaust and a -1 on the countershaft sprocket.
    I'm also running Metzeler Sport Touring tires at 34psi.
    The set up was exactly like I ride it every day.
    Corrected to sea level my time is 10.09 @ 142.02mph.

    Your time is pretty much spot on as posted in various cycle magazines. It's good to know that the bike is performing to specs.

    How do you like that sprocket for day-to-day riding? Do you find the powerband more useable now?

    I LOVE the 16t. Much better around town than the 17t that came on it. I lost about 12mph on the top end (it *only* goes 172mph now rather than 184mph) but gained tons of low end.
    Best mod (other than a steering damper) I've done so far.

    Thanks for the info. My boss is looking at adding a dampner to his. What steering damper did you go with?

    I went with the Scotts damper.
    The guy I ride with has an Ohlins that is nice as well.

    The Scotts damper is similar to the GPR, but higher quality (Scotts is made by Ohlins).
