  • Drags Last Night

    Hey all,

    For those that care, i did my first run on the R1 last night, and DAMN its hard launching a bike. So i definitly take my hat off to those that have mastered it..

    Any who did two runs..

    1st: 12.13@202km/h with a .87 reaction and a 2.6 60 footer.

    2nd: 12.03@205km/h with a .94 reaction and a 2.3 60 footer.

    That was enough for one night considering i took the night off work to spend with the wife ! rofl

    But yeah was the best thing i have done on the bike! would recommend it !!

    Well done keenan,

    Thats 2 more runs than I have done. Any trouble keeping the front wheel down (like me mate wiv de R6? )

    Must get a Wednesday night free to give it a go...especially after the little burst we did on the Reid H'way on Saturday (heading from Karrinyup to Guildford). I hung on to the back of that Kwakka nicely...forgotten who that was now...damn Alzheimer's!

            Drag racing's pretty cool on a street bike.
            I know what you mean about trying to launch a '05 R1.
            Damn hard work.
            I plan on practicing my starts a bit and then going down for another go.... one day.

              nice work mate!!!



              here is a tip for you all

              when that last orange light goes out

              HIT THE GAS!!!

              dont wait for the green

              will improve reaction times


              the time between the last orange and green light iirc 0.1sec
              so when u see the orange light go out by the time u react and start moving at least 0.1sec has elapsed.
              so when the green light turns on u start moving basically striaght away!
              RIP Scott!
              RIP Onikage!
              RIP ODDZ!

                There is 4/10ths between the lights.

                But by the time you react, it's already changed, so like frank said, nail it on the last one!

                    In competiton don't you get a false start if your reaction time is faster than humanly possible? eg, predicting the lights...
                    I know they do this in running sprint races, can't remember about drags but?

                        You might be right Falcore. Stands to reason.
                        Maybe someone who knows for sure can help us out?

                          dont worry about your reaction time on a wednesday night, it doesnt mean a thing, work on ya 60' time that where its at, you should be able to get it down to atleast a 2 sec flat without too much practice, then aim for the 1.6-1.7 mark, now thats a little harder to achieve

                          well done, you will get hooked and be taking time off to spend with the wife a lot more now!

                            It used to be that if you ran quicker than a 0.400 reaction it was a break out, but now its just a flat 0.000 - Much better since it got changed.

                            It measures the time from when the last amber come on to when your front wheel clears the start line beam.

                              yeah when i did that run of 0.002 or whatever, the system never registered a "foul" against me, so i actually beat a zx2r across the finish line, even tho it was .2 seconds quicker over the 400m
