That's impressive especially first time out and stock wheel base (and a 600!). What kind of power is that thing making? Its a good looking bike, really like the matte black!

Very impressive! You riding it or who's the jockey? Seems it didn't mind the hot laps 3-4 minutes apart. Is the motor in-touched? Have you had it on the scales? Great results on a new project. Still watching the "alcoholic" closely...

HP #s IDK, it never was dynoed. The bike has 40 miles on it and a bone stock engine. The bike weighs 380, the rider is myself, I weigh like 175-178 suited. Yes you can only make 3 runs tops, then it would try to wheelie. A few passes it would power wheelie all the way through 2nd and touched down perfectly with a shift to 3rd. On the .07 pass I actually missed 2nd gear, but I have a pretty good reaction to that stuff with footshifting. I have a pipe, lowering links, a strap on the front, gearing, some personalized add ons. I run VP MR12. I tune with the Woolich stuff, actually very new with it, 1st time using it.

The 14R is coming along. Perfection takes time. The Chassis is all done and the fuel system I just finished with Goodridge 910 soft braided lines. We have AEM Infinite ECU and digital dash. Im getting ready to bring the bike to Ryan Schnitz to have him wire it because thats what he does. So that will be coming out in the fall when the weather is cool.

The 636 when the DA is 500 ft instead of 2300ft like yesterday's test, somemore seat time and my 60' in the 1.55 range I think the bike will go some 9.80s. The only way to learn how to ride a new bike is to test like I did yesterday, and get 17 runs, 13 that counted and 4 that wheelied up to high to recover for a decent run.

I made it back to the track to test the 636. I geared it different and lowered it some more to the legal height for the class. I also made a few other changes. The weather was about 1400 ft DA , 40% Hum. and 80 degrees and a 8 mph side wind. I made 3 quick back to back runs and thought to myself that should be a couple 9s. Well I picked up my slips at the starting line, that's where they give them to you at a track rental. I went 10.07 on the first pass then a 9.97 and a .94 @138mph

I actually made 17 passes and 11 were in the 9s. My best was a 9.90 flat. Then by the end of the day I was burned out from the heat and sun and only went QTY 4 10.01s in a row. They were .004 apart between the 4 runs. I'm going to make another change that should help but the summer heat might offset that until the fall which my goal now in 9.75@ 140.

Here is a pic of some of my best passes.

Anyway I can't figure how to reduce the pic size.. SMDH !! I went 9.90, 2- .91s, 2- .92s, a .93 a couple .94s, a .97s... and so on!!

I actually really like this challenge of the finesse of the clutch hand and tuning of it all myself. I took the clutches out before I went to the track because I made probably 15 the last time out and they looked perfect so I put them back in. I took them out yesterday and they looked exactly the same as they did 17 runs before. So your talking over 35 passes on the bike learning everything and clutches aren't even thinking about being abused and replaced!!

Also on a funny note! I put 40 miles on this bike on the street and it now has over 90!!!! Lol !! just riding at the drag strip!!

Awesome results thus far Steve! You and I are virtually identical in weight however my 14's a bit heavier at just over 500lbs. when I first scaled it. My only other question at this point is why the MR12? Is it just for safety against detonation or have you seen gains even on a stock engine? I'm running boosted as set-up by RCC and he suggests I'd see no gains at both my 4+6 psi base springs but suggests C16 when I try the 7.5 wastegate spring. Even with the 4lb. spring I'm seeing 6.8-7.2 psi in the traps. Aloha, Rick B...
