I know there were some good launch techniques in here before. Lets here about some for keeping the front end down on the liter bikes.

I put all my weight forward and feather the cluch out. I get the RPMs up around 5500, it takes time to learn, I almost looped it on my first try.

Yeah, definitely feather the clutch to keep the front end down, rather than letting off the throttle. I have a question, too. Where are your feet when you launch? On the pegs or trailing behind you?

I keep my feet hanging off the back till I get the cluch all the ways out, then I put them on the pegs and shift with just RPMs

I trail my legs if I have a airshifter otherwise I will leave the shifter guarded, it's embarassing if your foot doesn't get there in time.

Right foot on the ground (for balance before the launch), left foot on the peg waiting to shift.

Hey...........New to this site!

As for the launch.....machine set-up, weight over the tank, rev to 7,700 and slide the clutch!

Both feet on the ground then to the pegs as soon as i get some speed up. I have GP shifting so I don't ever miss a gear, just push down and in it goes.
