Anyone have 1/4 mile times yet?

Taken my Duc onto the drag strip weeks ago. Made only 3 passes in nearly 5 hours because of a competition at the track. Did a respectable 10.52. Gotta go back this weekend probably and get it down to low 10's. Then I'll be happy. Anyone else have any times or videos they'd like to post?

Chris Harris video is pretty entertaining:



Ben Cope from Visor Down managed a 10.693 against a Porsche 997 GT2 RS at Santa Pod.

Here it is! Much better than the other day. I turned my TC off, 195 Hi of course, I had problems spinning off the line, never had a problem hooking up before but my friend said I should let some of the air out in the tire so I brought it down to 20 PSI, I think that was the mistake. I never spun last time at the drag track so next time I go I'll keep the normal tire pressure in it to see if it makes it better or worse. Also, I figured out that if you keep your TC off and give it half throttle in first... then soon as you hit second full throttle it, that gave me my best runs. But this time that you see I actually spun a bit off the line. I think my bike is losing HP too so it's very impressive with that fact too. I already told my dealer about it, but it feels less powerful in each gear, heats up after 100+ mph, and only tops out at 172 or so with my 130 lb ass on it. Hasn't rode like it used to. It's been like this since after the fire. I'll give them a chance to fix the issue though. Anyways... here is the result of the drag. Ambient temp was about 68 degrees. Bike temp was over 210

P.S. Case you can't see it: RT .124 (Slow)
60ft 1.870
330ft 4.649
1/8mile 6.801
MPH 115.57
1000ft 8.675
1/4mile 10.280
MPH 139.38

Yep. If I got my tire to lock up on the line I wouldve done close to that. Ill try again either this week or in a couple weeks. I gotta change a couple things and see if it makes a difference.

Try what I did, turn your DTC off, and give it partial throttle in first and second, then full on in third. Im gonna try to strap it down next time at the track.
