I've reached 115mph, I weigh 50kg lolI weigh 117 Kgs. I have reached upto 162 Kmph on level road. At that stage I still had more than 1000 rpms to go before the upper limit.
The 0-100 times are around >9 secs for me. Though that is more due to my gear shifting inadequacies rather than something to do with the bike.
So I've been trying to clutch up this little 250 for about a week now, 2-3 tries on my way home from work everyday. I can't get it more than a few inches off the ground. Anyone with tips? I saw Jake the garden snakes video and he is revving to around 5k and dropping the clutch. I go to 8k and can't get anywhere near as high as or as long of a wheelie as him. Bet luck I had was when I had a back pack full of crap and that probably helped change the weight distribution just enough to get it up, but still was just a baby wheelie regardless.I tried to clutch up it today. Been doing it for the last few days actually lol. Anyone with tips on clutch ups for a 250? On my 600 or 650 it's pretty easy. I rev the little 250 to 8k and drop the clutch but only get like 6 inches off the ground. Pretty lame.
Been wanting to install my Brembo caliper before deployment again. Still waiting on the parts/time to do so. My bike is almost done with all performance mods. I think the last piece is a rear shock, but right now I want to do a track day first to see how much I dislike the stock shock. The Ohlins fork cartridges are already proving their worth, even for my mostly commuting miles so far. I can't wait to take it to the track. Last canyon run I did was on stock internals.
Thanks! Got any videos, or any chance of one? This is exactly what I need. I am doing what you do bt at 8krpm instead. I get it up but not for long and only a few inches. I would imagine is is also slightly different in rpm for an R25. Another thing is, a different poster on YouTube is doing it at only 5krpm.Well. I usually start rolling the r3 around 10-15 mph. Then grab the clutch with one finder (index) and give some throttle to around 10 or 11k rpm snap out the clutch (quickly) and get plenty of rise from the front. All on 1st gear. You prob not gonna get much around 2nd gear. I just don't get much power. Clutch, throttle, clutch is all you need
