What do you mean exactly?

Throttle wise? Gear selection wise? Body position wise? All of the above?

Also are we talking about a concrete or dirt starting pad?

Depending on your gearing, and your weight it would be between 1st or 2nd gear for starts.

Other consideration or variables can contribute too. These include dirt condition. Is it grippy or slippery?

Also what is your weight? By the looks of your sig, I would say that you might be able to do 2nd gear, but again depends on gearing ratio.

But honestly, we can only state reommendations. You can usually tell by going out there and practising. Try different gears, throttle positions, stances and dirt types.

Let us know any more questions you might have!

Good luck!

yep, exactly what I was going to say. But you have to let out the clutch pretty smoothly and pretty fast in order to launch the bike and get the hole shot
