your not going fast enough. your not dragging the front of the mufflers or haven't torn off that silly lower fairing. you should be dragging the exhaust pipes in the front.

Impressive, especially as you seem to be on road tires! Something to work towards. Its good seeing how far other people have pushed these bikes.

yes Our box stock class required DOT approved tires, although Dunlop made some in soft compound for us. race slicks were a cruel joke the bike could not generate enough cornering loads to keep them warm, much less at race temp.
The only specialty tires that were of any use were race rains but again, illegal for our class.

Yep, I do scrape the lower fairing. You can really lean these bikes...
