The Big 3 REALLY wakes these bikes up. Did you try to shift lower in the RPM? There allot faster when you don't rev them and let it pull from the bottom of each gear.
The black top is making it more difficult for you, practice in grass. The XX has allot of power and short wheelbase making it prone to wheelies. i only raced others in the grass/dirt, I would sit forward and still ride wheelies into third leaving a roost.hmmm well i kind feel silly sitting on a black top road practicing starts.... sooo chalk one up for the 450's
I couldn't agree more, producing more power with the machine will only hurt you. Learn to ride what you have now in stock form before unleashing the potential.You could save yourself money and work on your technique.
More power is always nice but I agree with 3svt, Get the technique down first. As I mentioned before try shifting earlier.hmmm........... well now iam hoping for a powerbomb header, uni filter and power commander...... wonder if this will give me that edge ? honestly i dont think i should need it common 700cc vs 450
Quoted for truth.More power is always nice but I agree with 3svt, Get the technique down first. As I mentioned before try shifting earlier.
Not sure if starting from second will help or not as I never tried it that way. I would stick with starting in first unless someone has better results with second.well........ iam just not sure how to come at it...... even if i go out to practice, what am i practicing ? do i just go out in the middle of my dirt road ( which receives little traffic threw out the day ) and sit at a dead stop put it in second and take the plung ? shifting threw all the gears trying to get to 5th asap ?
iam not even sure where to start i guess is what iam saying
