2nd gear starts are the only way to go! :thumbsup: The bike weighs the same in all 5 gears.... the clutch is fully engaging.... maybe some tranny stress, but even in a car I start in 2nd unless the extra torque is absolutely necessary. My own opinion, not gonna say it's good for the machine but mine still works!!! :thumbsup: :grin_nod:

While dragging or quick starts I've been using 2nd, cruising around with family etc, 1st. Stresses, I've done this with all my quads and they still work.

I'm running stock gearring and if I'm draging up bull gap(hill) I usually use 2nd but with all the torque from my mods I think I can jam strait from 3rd. :grin_nod:

man i never would have thought you could start in third. . .ive always wondered about doing it but thought the bike would probly bog, especially since i have the 15th, but 2nd gear starts always when drag racing, doesnt have time to bog just gone. . . :wootwoot:

I can pull from 3rd pretty good with a stock 14 tooth. the next thing I get is going to be a 15 tooth. 4th won't pull as good but for the hill I drag I won't need it
