Here it is! Much better than the other day. I turned my TC off, 195 Hi of course, I had problems spinning off the line, never had a problem hooking up before but my friend said I should let some of the air out in the tire so I brought it down to 20 PSI, I think that was the mistake. I never spun last time at the drag track so next time I go I'll keep the normal tire pressure in it to see if it makes it better or worse. Also, I figured out that if you keep your TC off and give it half throttle in first... then soon as you hit second full throttle it, that gave me my best runs. But this time that you see I actually spun a bit off the line. I think my bike is losing HP too so it's very impressive with that fact too. I already told my dealer about it, but it feels less powerful in each gear, heats up after 100+ mph, and only tops out at 172 or so with my 130 lb ass on it. Hasn't rode like it used to. It's been like this since after the fire. I'll give them a chance to fix the issue though. Anyways... here is the result of the drag. Ambient temp was about 68 degrees. Bike temp was over 210
P.S. Case you can't see it: RT .124 (Slow)
