Is the bike street/strip or strip only? Most of the guys locally have had good luck w both the hook up and power one. Power one is a little lighter, but hook ups can be had a lot cheaper.

If the bike is SWB something like PP 2CT would be great. Ran one on a 04 and it worked fine. Once it was stretched and leaving a lot harder tho, it wouldn't get the power down consistently.
