Thanks :-)
A few months back I was dreaming of the elusive 9.50
Today I ran two 9.3s and this 9.2 !
Beyond my expectations!
Many thanks to Scott for a few good tips :-)

It was the guys first time at the strip.
He had run 10.5 earlier in the day which is pretty good / average for a stock 10 or 12 over here. Especially first time .
Its a mid to high 9 bike with practice .
He was going fast, just didnt start fast.
I think he got the bug as hes coming back :-)
The bugs got me for sure! Lol.
Ille never be the fastest but im having a blast!

My ultimate target was always 9.2 with this bike.
so i will go for 9.1 next :-)
8.99 is my new ultimate but I probably will need a few more mods to get there.
Maybe change to a direct port wet shot . I was also out of gear way before the line so may add a tooth on the front first. Im aware im pushing it to the limits stock so would like to sort the head out followed by considering other engine mods.
Also considering shedding a few pounds off the bike and my belly but may compromise and just lighten the bike :-)

You dont need a PC for nitrous you do need a good AFR as extra fuel is needed to provide the extra bang and avoid leaning out.
Id rather alter and add fueling by altering fuel jets within the nitrous system which is why I want to step up to a wet system.

My Silver bike has scruffy wheels too. I like the red but was considering a dark metallic purple like the lower fairing. Im also looking to wrap the plastics in vinyl to freshen it up. However I need to fix second gear first as it would be more advantageous :-).

So 9.1 next but wont be easy :-)
