I would need to do that for every result and the thread would be wacky looking. So much easier to edit the original post and everyone knows where to go to get results. I've edited threads like this for years at a time on other forums and there has never been an issue or problem. That point is moot here tho as I already have my answer.

Post your 1/8-1/4 mile results Here:

Top runs by class:

883 -
Jarhead07 - 1/4-13.580et @ 98.130mph - 1/8-8.657et @ 81.390mph - 60'-2.027

1000 -

1200 -

1201+ -
madnss - 1/4-11.52et @ 115.01mph - 1/8-7.33et @ 95.25mph - 60'-1.728

Due to wildly inflated dyno hp claims it is time to put some of these myths to rest. You can claim any hp number you like, but here you will back up those claims with a 1/8 or 1/4 mile timeslip.

Claim your class at the beginning of your post and ensure the timeslip is clearly legible. Expect entries to be scrutinized.

Going to attempt to get to a track tm night... I have my GoPro mounted to the forks. (Just now realized how odd to take a picture of a camera lol)



Dampner finally on the bike as well.

This is from the fresh 1250, xb heads 15deg squish, SE497 cams. No dyno tuning just plug tuning. I really need to work on those 60fts. Any ideas on how to strap the forks as I just don't quite get the idea.

Looks good Bro
Some guys use ratchet straps to pull the forks down tight and take the travel out

I have a simple strap made by schnitz racing. It's just a tie down stap but has different ends on it. Just rounded ends with a hole so you can fit a bolt threw it. I bolt mine to the top brake caliper bolt....run strap over frame neck, then bolt to the axle pinch bolt works great.

If you get your 60's down, your MPH on your ticket tells me the bike will run mid 11's . Or at least higher 11's, great job!!!!! Come out with rpm's in the 4 to 5 range and smoke the clutch, lay in the tank. Good. Luck!
