nahuel, to bad you're in Argentina ,I have both sets of extensions I'd like to sell. If you're going to ride on the street I think you will want the 6 inch ,they will help with your 60ft at the track but are still good on the street ,the stock gearing is actually good at the track , if you gear it down it just wants to wheelie,its a fun bike to race , challenging,and relatively quick for what it is ,have fun and keep us posted !

Thank you CW! I just sent you a private message for the sets you d like to sell. I see you have tried different combinations for the track, which would you say it was the best for 1/8 mile drag race? In terms of extension 6 or 10, sprockets gearing combiantion (since i ll put a 520 new extended chain i could change gearing too),and other change you would recomen. Your experience would be really helpfull for me. Thank you mate!!

15 45 is a good place to start will put you thru the right in 4th gear,thru the quarter in 5th ,but also still usable on the street .

Thank you Cw! I finally decided to go with the long extensions to go full drag. Gearing i will take your advice on 15 - 45! I will let you the results in race once i have the bike on track. Cheers!

If you're on the stock shock ,all the preload and full hard on rebound ,it's probably overwhelmed by the stretch

Yes, i have the oem shock absorber, but i am installing a rear lowering link. I dont know weather to put the link all low or in the middle. Did you lower your bike too?

I went yesterday to try for the first time the bike to the drags. I did 6,63 with 0.01rt. I want to put a shinko tire since the used metzeler i have slips a lot. Do you recomend to do something to the clutch? Thanks!

I had a fun TNT last night three runs in the 9.8s,two 9.9s new best of 9.808 ,that's pretty close to 9.7 so I guess I have a new goal !
