Hey Dan, I'm planning to race next wednesday (8th of April) as I'm off work that week, so is my brother, Tommo, Kirky and Brent.

It would be good if you came out for a run :D

Ah gay, I'll try and hurry him up :P

Ah gay, I'll try and hurry him up :P

Don't worry, I think I need a sprocket and chain replacement as well.
hellooo -1+2!

benxxx
01-04-09, 08:07 PM
Yeah that's what mine has too, wakes them up.

My advice is to get the +2 Rear done with the chain and if it's not enough do the -1 front cause you can do it without chain replacement

Roadster
02-04-09, 09:19 AM
I was just gonna do it in one hit. was contemplating +3 at the rear, but worked out that its too short for EC. hitting 230~kph with stock gearing atm. +3 @ redline is like 226kph lol

Tommo
02-04-09, 08:56 PM
I reckon I'll go from 10.7s to low 11s with the sprocket change I got done on the front, although it'll look much more impressive haha :)

Ben do you wear your full leathers at WSID?

Roadster
02-04-09, 11:25 PM
Ben do you wear your full leathers at WSID?

03-04-09, 12:08 AM
LoL just wear that shit around the house y0.

I bought all my gear wayy before i got my bike because this massive sale was on. so i strut my shit around the house for a while before they were acutally put to proper use hAhAHah

You going after work mate? We're going to meet near the track for a chillout before hand, most likely for a coffee/early dinner :)

edit: that was to daniel haha

danielb
06-04-09, 02:21 PM
Yeah mate, i'll be heading in straight after work probably, meet up before would be cool

danielb
08-04-09, 09:21 AM
Still on for tonight, weather looks awesome, can't wait! Bit nervous though, first time dragging a bike.

Steve FYI i've found myself bouncing off the limiter in 1st a few times by accident now so i should be OK with redlining the bike there now eh? :lol: :lol:

Tommo
08-04-09, 09:58 AM
As long as you're going full throttle when hitting limiter, you've got no dramas :lol:

I've seen you take off from every set of lights - you'll have no problems getting a mid to low 11 I reckon mate.

See you there at 4:45pm

danielb

My only tip for you is make sure you have your toes pointing to the ground, bracing to the big chuck of G's thats gonna push you back! :lol:

Roadster
08-04-09, 10:20 AM
oh and dont forget to *really* tuck into the windscreen, quite a few ppl dont do it right. just rest the chin of your helmet on the tank.
<------------------------

danielb
08-04-09, 10:25 AM
Yeah, i notice sometimes under hard acceleration it helps me stay on the bike if i'm pushing towards the back of the bike on the pegs with my feet pointing straight down..

Not coming down tonight steve?

Ah, it was awesome fun. Much more interesting than racing in a car (well a 12 second one anyway)

Ran a best of 11.3 @ 124mph so pretty happy with that! Some awesome times from the other guys but...

Tommo
08-04-09, 10:56 PM
Well done mate - very stout effort ! I think 11.3 is awesome :D

Was a good night out there, I managed to improve on my PB so always happy with that. Ended up with a 10.608 @ 138.4 :) So close to a 10.5.. haha

benxxx
08-04-09, 11:25 PM
Awesome stuff daniel, you too tommo

Roadster

So annoying haha

someone's brave... sound like you haven't dumped the clutch at redline yet. LOL

Futile
09-04-09, 07:36 PM
Damnit missed this one. When are you guys heading to wsid next? I havent had the chance to get my bike out there yet!

Tommo
09-04-09, 09:38 PM
what 60 ft times did you guys get?
1.9 for me.

danielb
09-04-09, 09:44 PM
I'm a 2.0 60ft noob here :lol:

benxxx
10-04-09, 12:20 AM
I got a 1.9 and a few 2.0's

Yeah, I was surprised to see my front wheel slightly in the air in the above photo, I only just noticed it LOL

Thanks for the cacklingpipes link :D

Roadster
10-04-09, 06:24 PM
got enough cars there?! fuck.

Tommo
10-04-09, 07:16 PM
Yeah it was a packed night. Happy that we all got four runs in :)

Very stoked with cacklingpipes photos - they got a 6 in a row run of me taking off - looks mad as.

Might head along again this wednesday, need to get a retune first though as I reckon the bike will comfortably make another 10rwhp. It's got a power commander, just runs rich as (< 12.0 AFRs based off last dyno run 12 months ago)

danielb
10-04-09, 07:27 PM
Awesome, i'm keen to go again as well but might wait till i move back home

how did you go tommo?

Tommo
16-04-09, 05:25 PM
Didn't end up going again last night.

Will get a re-tune and head down again.

Still stoked with a 10.6, can't wait to go again and try to hit a 10.5 :)

roger that. I'll be needing a retune as well before I head down.

who you gonna use for the retune? doin' bikes?

Tommo
17-04-09, 06:51 PM
I've heard great things about them - Garth had someone around Minchinbury he has used and recommends, been meaning to contact him and ask.

I don't expect to make massive amounts of power over what I have now... but my number plate not going yellow every 500kms and some decent fuel economy wouldn't go astray :) I wonder how much more power it'd take to hit 140mph if I'm at 160rwhp now... hmm, one way to find out!!!

Roadster
18-04-09, 07:59 AM
I might give doin bikes a go since they are around the corner from me.
last dyno the bike had was 5 years ago, putting out 100rwhp. I wonder how much an airfilter will net me.

Roadster
26-08-09, 07:01 AM
WSID time again, who is up for it?

Tommo
30-08-09, 04:21 PM
I'm getting a retune once I return from the US, so I will race then.

Go race soon, and then come back with me then... :):)

good work

a chick on a old skool vmax and i were the first to run for the night, on the way back, it started to sprinkle. but it stopped 5 minutes later. Didn't doa burnout for the first run, boy did it wheelspin half way down the track!


60ft were 1.9xx and 2 second mark.. still haven't got the balls to go faster. lol :oops:

this meet is the first meet since the -1 front sprocket change, hence the new PB :D

Got it tuned today. only new mod is a BMC race filter. but shit it feels like a brand new bike! not bad for a 73,000km old engine. looks like going back to the strip for another run! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Tommo
27-10-09, 10:09 AM
Awesome.. how much was it? Still happy with service/results? :):)

(slow reply, just got back from overseas)

(slow reply, just got back from overseas)

cost 250 for rats members, (just say you are) normal price is 300 bucks.

comments on service, rocked up and told him that I had just installed the bmc race filter. 90 minutes later door opens and everything was done! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

btw, ben have you netted a increase in fuel consumption with the sprocket changes?

benxxx
27-10-09, 11:02 AM
No idea bro :lol:

Tommo
28-10-09, 07:27 AM
I would like a fuel consumption increase, I always get 7.5L per 100km haha

Roadster
28-10-09, 09:22 AM
i think my fuel consumption has gone up from ~6l to 7.25l/100km after the bmc race filter, remap and -1T front sprocket change.. :(

benxxx
28-10-09, 10:21 AM
Do you have a before/after dyno ?

Maybe it's had fuel added in areas ?

Either that or you're just up it more often haha

~6l/100km is when i got the bike...

it was running lean with the bmc race airfilter.

havent been riding differently...:oops: just been knee sliding more on the track. lol :cool:

benxxx
28-10-09, 03:20 PM
I wouldn't know what I get anyway without a speedo healer.

-1 and +2 has messed with my speedo big time haha, it means my k's rack up quicker though :(

28-10-09, 04:59 PM
yea mine too.... ive calculated that my speedo is reading 10% higher than it should

Tommo
27-11-09, 09:44 PM
hahah.. we will have to have a proper race where I actually care for reaction times :D Unlike the 'race' you're referring to haha

Could be good fun between you, me, Daniel and Ben :D

Roadster
02-12-09, 02:22 PM
My engine is missing around 10-11,000rpm this morning on the way to work....
gonna change the plugs and give this week a miss... will be out there next week with Daniel.

Tommo
02-12-09, 09:35 PM
