Passable/good reaction time but RPMs appear too low at launch and the bike bogged when you gave it the full clutch.   That cost your 60ft. time quite a bit.

Anything more and it wheelies. I was launching at 5 grand and no dice. At 3500 to 4000 was were my bike was doing good. It is prolly cause the bike is t strapped and my rear shock needs to be revalved. It would feel better then im sure.

Come out at 5+ and slip the clutch without letting the RPMs drop (it did bog) and roll that throttle on at the same time.  It takes practice..........at least it did for me.

Nice vid and good shifting................that 60 ft time will improve.  Keep it up.  Maybe Jeff will race with ya once he has his air shifter.  He is not too old and fat.  Not as old as me and we weigh the same.  240 ish.   :tu:

I don't think he's doing any full kits as of yet Fred.He does have me looking into using nitrogen though instead of co2(3000+ psi and not affected by heat/cold,etc. like co2,and available at any paintball shop).Only issue I'm looking into now are high pressure bottles,smallest I have found so far online are 13ci(which are about 9"x2")and wouldn't seem to fit inside of a stock Gen II tail(unless maybe if I went with a Tiger undertail or found a clean way to mount it up inside of the hump without butchering shit up).

I feel very fortunate to have an on-board compressor that keeps the air bottle full at all times.  One less thing to have to do.

Chain looks dry and coolant looks low.   :hys:


P.S. A blacked out/tinted headlight is like a stripper wearing a pair of "farmer Brown's" bib-overalls.  Does not compute to the Ghost Geezer.

Show me a dedicated track in any class bike that doesn't have an air shifter. :lol:I don't care how good someone thinks they are at foot shifting,still not gonna be as consistent as pushing a button(on or off a track).Not having to try to get your foot up to hit 2nd gear is a biggie too,very few people ever even try(or have to with a button)and usually don't get their feet up until time to hit 3rd gear.
