great write up, I've always thought I had a knack for starts, I was launching around 8k and doing well on my 09 zx, but I am going to shoot for 10-12k starts and see what kind of results I can get. really good post full of great information!

I am glad that you liked it! Just be aware that there is a TON more power available at that rev range, and it can take some getting used to. Remember to be easy with the clutch or you can end up being THIS GUY:



I can laugh about it as that is a personal friend of mine who basically panicked and dumped the clutch off the start last year. Thankfully, the rider is fine =)
