                may be not this week..
                i still need to pull the spark plugs out and check how the new nitro/fuel mixture settings went. I think i'm still on the too rich side. it should be perfect after few more test runs.
                and i gotta do something about the headshakes was getting on the bike during last saturday's run.
                headshakes at 290 somthin around a bend was a bit hairy

                dragon: did you see any traces of black smoke outta my exhaust when you were following me? which would indicate too much fuel.

                    you're actually meant to install the turbo and not drag it at the back of the bike

                    with a good rider + perfect launch, K3 thou (naturally aspirated) can pull low 10's. so i don't see why breaking 10sec would be so surprising?

                          turbo gix 1000 was posting slower speeds than a stock one on the same night.. had a much higher terminal speed tho.. forget what it was... some guy from the country owns the bike..

                            Turbo my butt.

                            I would love to come down but i no longer am in OZ.
                            But ask Deej , I was on a naturally asperated non nos STOCK I repeat STOCK bike pulling those times.
                            a mate had a turbo gixxer and his times was way worse...why...cause tha back tyre was spinning & the front was only comes good after 3/4 track & by then its all over.

                              Hey, if ya get the chance go down there it is good fun.

                              I did it earlier this year on the SP and was able to manage low 11's so the R1's should do under that for sure.

                              Its all in the take off. U can be as fast as fuck down the straight once u hit 3rd gear and up but if u cant get off the line quickly its all over for you and u will look like a nanna.

                              It took me six goes to sought my take off and that is when and only when that i did a good time. Most of the other times i was doing mid 12's so go and give it a shot.

                              U would love it spike
