My track is about 150ft above sea level! I'm excited!

DO you think a kit like this would be adequate?

Yeah. To get the most out of it I'd add the adjustable rear linkage as well.

Yes, you have the power for your bikego in the 9 sec. But, the most important thing to lower your time on the 1/4 mile is the 60 foot. If you remove .2 sec on your 60 foot you will be in the 9 sec. Normally when you remove .1 sec of your 60 foot. You got .3 sec at the 1/4 mile.

The H2 SX is an high bike. This is an advantage for better riding position. But, it's an disavantage for the drag. That's promote to wheelie. Also, your not an light weight driver and your weight increases the center of gravity and that's contribute to the wheelie too.

If you want lower your 60 foot, lower your bike with an adjustable link kit and front end lower kit. Normally, each inch drop, give you .1 sec at the 1/4 mile and maybe more...

Another secret to perform better on the 1/4.... practice and practice the start for better 60 foot...

Next time I go to the track I'm planning on having a front end strap and possibly lowering links on the bike.

Quick question for everyone that has done drag racing. We all know the big wigs out on a dyno since the front wheel isnt spinning. Anyone have issues with doing a burnout?

On a track or street? On a track you use a “water box”,
(A section of track before the lights) to heat tire.

I know about the waterbox and how that works. Thats not what im asking. What im asking is does the bike go into limp mode after doing a burnout since the front wheel isnt spinning, like on the dyno?

Mine is flashed and i ask my tuner to disabled the DTC code for the front abs sensor. That's prevents Traction Control to kick in when the bike is on the dyno or the side stand or when you do a burn
