I know there are way too many variables to give a difinitive answer. But how about a ball park.. Lets say at the track in 1/4 mile, what is the hardest i can launch with my gsxr 750 thats mostly stock. What is the best method, dump the clutch @ 4-5K rpm and put all my weight to the front, or should i be slipping the clutch. Should I be expecting any wheel spin, or is hooking up not too big a deal here.

at what point is my front wheel going to come off the ground

cant just dump the clutch, have to slip it...especially on a is to bring the revs to 6-7k, let the clutch out and as soon as the clutch grabs get it to full throttle while slipping the clutch,,,,,dont worry about the front wheel comming off the ground, as long as you dont have to back off the throttle a little lifting of the front wheel is fine....just takes a lot of practice thats all...
:iagree: That sums it up for any condition except maybe spinning. You as the rider will have to learn where your bikes lifts and be able to feel the rear break lose. Till your comfortable with it. Take it slow.
