looks like a dyno run at a bike meet, sheet happens when push comes to shove!! could be the same beancounters that picked the OE tyres, figured the poor traction would protect the "bolts", prolly a hardly setup as porkster sales fall like lead balloons!!
Ok here goes, HC will no doubt back me on this.
Its not so much the lack of traction that breaks things, its more the sudden hookup when it does.
Goes from madly spinning to grip!
My car can do it around the 60 foot mark if I got töo much revs off the line it just unloads being a 4 speed its difficult to juggle revs clutch traction and nerves.
If it unloads off the lights not only does it cost a few tenths but when it does get traction the thump through the whole car is phenomenal! Makes me cringe for a millisecond and boot myself up the arse for töo much revs off the line.
Havent watched the vid in question yet but if it wasnt in total traction from the start could cause breakage.
