Quickshifter

Has anyone seen a quickshifter for the gen1 bikes or know of a way to make one? My bike that I want it on is strictly for the drag strip and I need to get my times down.

KLR on a drag strip?
Watching this thread out of crazy curiosity and a friendly chuckle!

Easy Donkey. Shaving a tenth off of a 19 second pass is a big deal.

There is a 1/8 mile track near my house and so far my best time there is a 8.80. I do it because it’s fun and I just want to get my times lower. If I knock a tenth off or more I would be happy

Dragstrip

Sorry Paden. We're just playin. If someone has information for him please help him out.

Actually, several of the crew that I used to ride with in NC took their bikes to a strip a few years ago. I wasnt able to get there but they had a ball. Someone cheated, brought a KTM ###EXC. Ate all their lunches.

I did beat one of those new Camaro turbo 4 bangers, a Nissan Titan, and almost beat a gsxr600. The 600 got me by .5

Are you racing "Heads up" or are you racing brackets?

Right now I’m doing heads up. I’m still working on the bike to get my times down and get more power. I’m trying to get enough money to stretch my swing arm right now and when I was taking off the rear shock it started leaking oil so now I have to fix that or get a new one.

See if this link works. It’s a video someone took of me at the track last week. Quality isn’t good but it’s something. https://youtu.be/91E7WJZybgw
pdwestman, campfire and StevenE like this.
