10.33 ???? Don't you have like, modifications GALORE? Hmmm.... Guess you better leave drag racing to us inbred hillbillies, who clearly have loads more skill then you.

Couple tips from a half brain with no skill...... if you're changing the sprockets drop 1 tooth in the front and put your stock sprocket on back, so 17/46. It's a great combo for good acceleration. I personally think a full tank of gas helps prevent wheelies, so I'd leave it filled up. Buy a front end strap, which you can put on and tighten only when you are at the strip. They are cheap and effective, no need to lower the bike. Loosen it and remove it and drive home same day back at stock ride height. I did that last year with a stock height ZX14 and was cutting 1.6 sixty foot times. Dropping 3 tenths off your sixty time should bring you down to a 9.7 which would be halfway respectable, even for a dropkick bogan slurry like you.

Thanks for the info hibs much appreciated . As for a full tank of gas i have to disagree with you . Every time I had roll race's with a full tank the bike wanted to lift more than having a low tank ! My gearing is 16 48 with a 200/55 rear tire hence being hard to launch . I am not going to drop the bike for now as I want to see what I can do the way it is ! Just adding the link to push the rear wheel back and cooler weather . PS haven't seen you trying to annoy the H2 page on fb of late lol

Not bad times Maximus.
I don't think an extra link will make any difference. You could stretch and lower and still find the same et but more relaxed and safer feeling. Quick shifter / airshifter is a good move and helps the time. My first time on my stock 12 was a 10.4 138 front wheel flapping 1 2 3 . Hey great stuff :) Careful its addictive so just remember to let the clutch cool down between runs and enjoy! I ran 16/50 on stock wb which got me to 10.00 and front wheel was OK still with practise but hard to go faster until stretched with lock up 2 step and WOT launches :)
I'm hoping to be first time out this weekend on my zx11 turbo which is shorter wheelbase ~ will be interesting.
Anyhow keep having fun shiny side up.

I spent 6 months in Afghanistan last year during summer/fall so I missed the entire riding season. Only got home two months ago, and here in Colorado it's winter. Had some good days recently, but snow in the forecast for this weekend again. I'm giving it another month or two for the weather to warm up, streets clear off, then I'll be on the H2 hunt. There is a local guy here with an H2. I found some videos of him street racing some chumps on R1s and such last year. I know a guy who knows a guy who knows the H2 owner, so I'll be trying to setup the race for sure. I'm thinking it'll be a good match, maybe 20mph roll on for 1 mile. He's got all that boost to overcome the high elevation here... but I got something special for him.... should be a good race.

Great bike and the longest bike to hold the top speed record in standed form from memory ..
