Hey guys, I'm new here and figured this would be a good place to turn to get some answers.
I have a 2011 GSXR 750, it's pretty much stock besides full exhaust, flash tune, -1 front sprocket, Soupy's adjustable lowering link and a strap for the front. Suited I weigh just over 200#.
I'd like to get low, low 10's or maybe a high 9 as it sits. I video my runs and try to learn from it. I've only taken it to the track 3 times but I'm making progress.
The first time in June (it was completely stock), my best was a
7.35 @ 104.3 1/8
11.11 @ 130mph
I noticed I wasn't slipping the clutch enough and wasn't staying in it in 1st.
Next time was in Sept (with exhaust, tune and -1) I went a
7.29 @ 104.26 1/8
11.04 @ 130.89
I improved with my clutch work a little but still kept chopping the throttle when it would come up as the rpms climbed in 1st.
This last time was on Halloween (with the strap and lowering link) my best pass was a
4.67 330' (I was getting better at staying in it )
6.91 @ 109.92 (finally broke into the 6's )
10.53 @ 134.37
I know I have 2 big issues, one is seat time. This is my 1st bike in probably 15 years and as you can see I don't go to the track much (I may have 12-15 passes on the bike). Next is that I'm SWB, so I know I'm going to need more seat time and a bigger set of balls.
I know I need to leave harder, more rpm, a good clutch hand, and go WOT ASAP. That will come with seat time. I'd like to go low 1.6's. I'm open for suggestions.
Next, from 1st-2nd, I let off and clutch shift. From 2nd on I usually keep the throttle pinned and bump the clutch on the shift. This last time out I lowered my shift point from red line (14,2xx) down to around (13,500). Should I shift with or without the clutch, let off the gas on shifts? Should I change my shift point? The dyno sheets that I've seen for the '11 GSXR 750 show it making peak power at 12,500 stock. (I'd imagine I'm around that, maybe a tad higher.)

Sorry for the book. I just figured, the more info I gave you, the better the advice would be.
