Thinking about goin to Sears point and get some numbers for my 1997 Daytona T595. Just curious to find out where others launch at.

Mine is usually about 5000RPM until the light changes, then I nail it at the same time I'm letting out the clutch. By the way, Laurent, the first Wednesday night drags this season at Sears Point are on April 3rd. I plan to be there.

I would like to go, but seriously doubt I will have my license by then. But maybe I'll put the bike on the back of the truck and go anyway. If not I'll just go up there and watch. But I'll be there.

I just watched some video, and, for me, I slip the clutch between 60'-100' out..... It "feels" like a long way out there. The longer you do it, generally the better chance you have of counter-acting the power wheelie.

Good run Azsportbiker......

I have yet to master launching my 929, It either bogs or I slip the clutch to much. I'm not a good straight line bike guy. I would like to put some numbers up at LACR though.

I really suck at launching my 929 too. I think my biggest problem is not being able to keep the front wheel on the ground. So far, I've only been able to manage 60' times in the low 1.90's and ET's in the 11.0's.

WE-LEE-BARS, are oh so much fun!!!! Drop the clutch at 10k on the 929 and 8 on the TLR! It feels like somebody has just hit you with a train, can only imagine what a 5sec car would be like

Do you have a picture of your wheelie bars? I was thinking about making some. Where do they bolt on? Did you replace your shock with a solid strut?
