helping a friend

hi guys, i tried to search but most of the info are for mod bikes.
a friend of mine is racing a 2012 zx10 1/8 and he is getting 6.9 ( the best run ).
his bike is stock, he only has -1 front sprocket, slip on, a K&N air filter and a Shinko tire.
now we want to support him and we want to get him some parts and we have these in mind:
- lowering the front and rear straps.
- 520 chain -1 front ( we don't know what is proper gearing for 1/8 and 1/4 track )
- quick shifter are not allowed.
- clutch upgrade ( what do you recommend? )
- we are thinking of getting Michelin power cup A ( here the price difference is not much ).
- since he is a bit fat we will try to trim him and the bike like loosing the kick stand and changing the OEM faring the race faring and a race battery.

what do you think and what do you recommend?
thank you all

Have him lose as much body fat as possible, he'll be more popular with the girls, healthier and best performance upgrade.

Since he's on heavy side gona need more than -1 i would go -1 +2 see wat rpms/gear crossin line and go from there. you can lower the front with front strap which helps out ton, pick up set of lowering links for the rear, good clutch to go with is dragpak from cycle concepts also might wanna throw set of heavier clutch springs while your at it.

Clutch upgrade probably should be done first since he's a big guy. The oem clutch won't last long drag racing.
