Help finding drag parts

I am wanting to convert my 2007 ZX10 into a dedicated drag bike for NHRA Pro-Bike class. I am having a hard time finding parts for it. Does anyone know where to find these parts.

1: Fairings (drag race specific) I am looking for a rear fairing that drops the seat and has the skirts that cover the dead space caused by extending it. I am also needing to gain space for electronics since the 10 has very little room.

2: Wheelie bar kit for the ZX10. I may have to fabricate one but if there was one specifically for it, that would be easier.

3: Clutch I want to be able to drive back to the pits but will the stock clutch set-up work with a slick/whellie bar? Most people run sliders but require a tow back to the pits.

4: Any other parts that would be recommended. I will be getting the gadgets IE delay box, launch limiter. I allready have air shifter.

7.5" extensions($300), 6 up rear sprocket(free), front straps($20), lowering links($60), removed slipper($200), shinko u-soft rear($165),Yoshi Slip ons ($300) 9.84 @ 143 w/fat boy(230lbs) = priceless.

Try catalyst for the tail(dont think they make an extended one but the supersport one comes with the side covers and you could talk to them about extending it), tim hayes for the clutch www.haysmachineworks.com and if you use tims clutch you shouldnt need wheelie bars just make it long and put a good shock and tire on it.

Thanks. Catalyst said that they would not extend one but did say that I could use there +6" for the 04-05 if I ran low exhaust IE sidewinder etc. I also found oppracing.com and I e-mailed them about extending the ones they carry. We will see if the will and how much. I will check out tims clutch later. I just put my Blaster motor back in and was starting to break it in.

LOL I know. I origanally bought -1 +2 but they sent me the wrong sprockets and the guy doing the work on my bike had the titanium +6 laying around and gave it to me for free, so, I went with it. He said it would be close to the -1 +2. The bike tops out & 156 in 6th gear now. I wonder how that compares to someone with the -1 +2?

Thats just pure not knowing what your doing there. If you have a slider or multistage setup properly it will not do that. I have never even come close to looping a bike like that at the track. that lever on the left clip-on is the clutch and it must be used. theres 500 hp turbo bike with no bars running low 7 second passes without bars.

-2 +2 is actually more gear than 0, +6
