Trouble launching wee in 4th gear

Okay so come to a stop and put it in gear and let out the clutch slooowly with a wee bit of gas, no go! 1st,2nd and third work fine. I'm trying to remember if my ZRX1200 had this problem too, anybody have one?

You're kidding right? Late April fools joke?

Madstad Bracket = Awesome!
Emgo Mirrors = Work and Look Great
Cortech Sport Tailbag = Very nice
Cortech 10L Tankbag = Another nice piece
MSR Dominator ATV Hi Bars = Give the bike a whole different feel
Suzuki Gel Seat = Best so far but still not 100% for me
Bestem (Ebay) 2012 42L Top Case = Best bang for the buck!

I've tried to launch in 3rd before, only because I forgot to downshift, but why would anybody try to do that on purpose?:?:

Where's your sense of adventure and scientific discovery?

And so another salvo is fired in the ongoing sectarian struggle between the Two Pipe clan, and the Wee-nies.

Talking

fatalerror, I would like you to become my new best friend

Seriously, though, are you just trying to see if you CAN launch it in 4th gear? I mean, you may be able to... try pointing the bike downhill and bringing it up in revs... a little push might help too. Just trying to be helpful

A direct Question:

Why would you do such a thing?
