Sounds like you might need a different kind of bike! I agree with Bigrepp61, if you do it, take a video and post it. That way, I can see it and not have to fix anything....LOL

I'm not that much on burnin rubber, a match will do that much cheaper... But the VN750 in good tune and with propper throttle will launch your behind very well indeed, and right on up through the gears if shifted right...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

I have done one, I did not have a video and was putting a new tire on the next day it was with the stock tire, kinda harder with the Metzler though.
You have to hold the front brake, stand up so you do not put weight on the bike.
Bring up the RPM's ane let out the clutch, Don't do it to fast or you can pull the front tire off the ground, I have done that to.
Having the back tire in water helps alot.
