Learn to shift!!! j/k!!!! Shocks.
One mod will NOS :grin_nod:mikeym said:ive already got yfz front shocks, and i dont think i can shift any faster. i dont let off the gas and just tap the clutch as i upshift. im ahead thru 3rd gear, prolly because he shifts slow, but in 4th he creeps, and 5th is gone by 6 lengths or so. power wise, his bike has big bore, carb, cam, filter, exhaust, clutch, etc.
i dont think 1 mod alone can make up for what id need to outrun him...
The weight will always be an issue, and it does in fact make a difference. I dont know about 6 lengths though....but when you think about it thats 30 lbs of your weight plus 46 lbs of dead machine weight....76 lbs!!! ...that is pretty big.mikeym said:im no light weight at 260, but hes 225-230. we switch bikes, but cant really tell a difference because he cant shift. i knew he had the advantage, but we both smoke a 150lb guy on a pretty modded banshee, and kinda dismissed the fact that 30lbs could make up 6 lengths. ill try a port/polish and big bore and see what happens. from what i understand, a cam doesnt add much power, it just disperses it differently?
Hey bro, did you realize this thread is like 4 years old.thats odd I got the mods listed below and I raced vs a yfz 450 that had 3 mod, barrets, 22 inch and upgear sprocket and won by a long shot.
do you second gear launch do you shift under 6500 rpm? do you have your speed limter grounded, 4 and 5 th gear has speed limiter if you didnt know. I run also with octane bosster 2.5 oz for 2 gallons of 91 oct gas.
