  • Practice and see what works for you !

  • I hear you Ricky. Just grab on and gas it✊

  • I have raced them for years. They're touchy. Hang on buddy. Lol

  • It really depends on your gearing, with a setup of, say, 14-44 or 15-44, 2nd is most likely going to be best. Stock or close to stock then 3rd may be best.

  • Ill see what cogs i got on it. Had it a few months now. Love it. Just not raced it. Im pretty decent at starts. Last bikes i raced were 4strokes.. not raced a 2stroke for a long time.

  • 2nd is the safe way..

  • I have always used 2nd but if start is very wet then 3rd works better with less wheel spin.

  • 2nd gear behind the startgate and when you are just over it, put it in 3rd and ect... Motor is powerfull enough to take the gears... :-) Remember to brake and turn in the first bend :-)
