most of your et will be determined by your launch as long as you have clean shifts. just gotta find a good starting rpm and release the clutch as quickly as possible without bogging it or poppin it up. that'd be the thing to avoid...don't pop a wheelie and dont crash

strap down the front forks, add a rear lowering link if you can. we've got a member on tlzone who does a bit of drag racing, his s/n is N2Wheelies, you can try a search there. His bike is up for sale too.

Practice, Practice, Practice!
kahearn is right.
Getting off the line is a biggy.
When you are watching the lights go down...
yellow
yellow
yellow
yellow
green

Take off on the yellow before the green.
By the time your mind tells your hands to
work clutch and throttle...it will hit green.
That is the amount of time that you have
to work with to make improvements.
(to start with)
Then you work on your shifting with constancy.

You ought to go on a "test and tune" day.
That way you can get a bunch of runs in.
If the guys there are like around here, they will
be glad to see ya and be more then willing to
help out with some pointers.

Have fun and be safe.

strapping=more prone to head shake. but i guess u prolly dont wanna get your forks done just to make a few passes.
