I'm having a blast trying to get better at this,and getting in the9s definitely a milestone for me, but a stretched stock liter bike will gap me a full second,so yeah it's fast till you line up next to a fast bike !on the clutch issue I have the extreme creation billet basket,barrnetts plates and springs

Hey Cw09 thank you for keeping us updated. I'm about to change clutch plates, springs and cable. What is your clutch set up? Also would love to see photo's of FZ09 drag bike.
Here's a couple I took during a visit a few weeks back.

I wish I had something to post ,but Gainesville has begun digging up the track,they are putting in a new concrete surface thru the 1/4 mile,repaving the shut down area,this is in preparation for the 50th Anniversary gatornationals in March,i have 2 upgrade coming for the orange bike,not so patiently waiting on parts

After my last race I pulled it apart and inspected , everything looks good and measured within wear limits ,so I put it back together, I'll have a set of Barnett's frictions on hand cause I doubt I can get a whole season out of these, I had a clearance issue with the extreme basket ,but that is solved by trimming the cover gasket a little ,it's one of those parts that's expensive but worth it

So I had my first test of the year last night ,did 15 runs at the 1/8 mile track in Clearwater FL,the first 10 were bad then I got my shit together my old record 1/8 was a 6.25 , finally on my 11 or 12 run got a 6.16 at 112.36 then on the next run a6.14 at 112 ,since last year I got rid of the extensions ,and had a 15 over aluminum arm made for it ,that part was a success ,my good 60fts used to be like 1.55 last night in those 2 good runs I had a 1.47 and 1.43,i also had a 1.39 but screwed up down the track,the other change I made was an air shifter with a push button ,but I didn't like the button I'm gonna do something different there,so off to a good start hope I didn't have my best run of the year in January !!

Hi CW09 i am from argentina, and i was reading carefully to your threads, really interesting. I have an MT09 2018 with some accesories and ECU Flash, and i wanted to do some mods to go 1/8 drag racing as well. I am about to purhase swingarms extensions, from Extreme Creations, but i am not sure which model to buy, weather 4 to 6" or 8 to 10". I would like to be able to use the bike in the street as well on weekends, so i was plning to go for the 6", but if they are not good for drag, i would go directly to the 10". Which ones you recomend? I would relly appreciatte your advices, since it is diffucult here to get parts from abroad, and i want to make the right choice. Also i culd use your advice on transmission, i have the OEM 16 -45 sprocket, but since i am going to buy a 520 chaiin, i would like to know your adviec on sprockets, Maybe 15 and 45?
Thank you alot, i attach a picture of my bike. :icon_thumright:
