  • You should always do burnouts at the drags!

    I never did burnouts before every run and never had a problem, but now i learnt my lesson! Could have been a lot worse bike was pretty much fine oggys more than payed for themselves right there! and so lucky the back wheel hit the wall before anything else! At least i can laugh about it, went on to run a couple 10.8s which wasnt too bad considering the bruised ego

      That tarmac looks pretty slick in the video, and your bike seemed to slide like it was on ice

        Looks to me like your tyre was wet, too. Did you ride through the water spray and not do a burnout?

        Nice lowside, though. Better than looping it.

            Given the way you didn't run to your bike, maybe it just knew you don't love it, and decided to teach you a lesson?

              Rode around the water so unless there was something on the track? definatley felt like it was wet never had it spin up like that before. Yeh glad it put me down nicely and not a nasty high side!

                I've never been to the drags, but I am guessing the burnout warms the rubber a bit for extra stick?

                      That's why 'fuellers always do such huge burnouts. Any thing with rapid acceleration [ie your Gixxer],gets a little horrible once it loses traction. Good to see you walked away , and the bike still loves you with a few 10 sec. passes...

                        Hard to tell from the video but my guess is that there was something on your tyre or on the track (cars with air cons on can drop water).
                        It is very unusual for a bike to spin up like that on the start line. I had no trouble and nor did anyone else that I saw on the night, even Ross's 200HP B king didn't spin up with no burnout (and ran 9.70).
                        It is still a good idea to do a little skid to clean the tyre as there is crap all over the pad around the water and up to the line.
                        Good to see you didn't damage much and got back out there.

                          Track is sticky but you've lined up right in the middle
                          where the tyre tracks aren't, nice and smooth and not
                          much grip, thats why your bike slid the way it did with
                          your oggy's, bar ends, and the wheels spinning up there
                          is not a lot of contact with the surface and the inertia of
                          tyre thats why it spun like a top... glad you just shook it off

                            BeNo, he is in the right spot on the start line right in the middle of the tyre tracks. The shinny stuff either side is a bit slippery.

                              dude. you dont need to burnout at the drags, just make sure the tyres are nice nd warm

                              You tried to power out of the slide...... Thats bad.

                              There was no way to save it, you had to get off the throttle
                              The run was lost, it's all in the launch.

                              Best thing to have done was to get off the throttle, and try again next run.
