    I realize that the bike is going to want to lift the front wheel quicker, but it seems like a little gearing would help, 1st just seems real tall.

    gear so you can leave around 5500 rpm and slip clutch to 60 ft mark. NEVER just pop the clutch out at 60ft mark once you feel tire speed is up as the sudden little pop and front tire is up no matter how well you did to 60ft mark.. continue to slide hand till your full speed. throttle needs to be about same speed opening as your sliding clutch.. find the sweet spot and have a blast. I wish there was some 240lb riders here on hand clutch SWB, I'd bust they wing..

    -1 in the front is what I run and its definitely a big difference but manageable with swb. Hell I was thinking about -2 but I'll wait till I stretch it before I do that

    When I was swb on my 05 1k, I went -1 on the front and that seemed to work pretty good. I'm also 220 suited.

    i was also -1 on the front sprocket with a stock rear sprocket on my k6 1000, 170 suited. i found the bike easier to ride after installing a TRE. After some seat time, I was getting into the high 1.5x 60's which i thought was respectable for what I had. Both a front sprocket and a TRE are cheap and worth while experiments if you want to try some different things.

    I can't weight to put together another SWB bike!
