Need some gearing info

So I plan on goin to the dragway soon but I want to get the most I can outta my 1st gen. My buddys got a ZX12 extended and I gotta be faster than him. I currently have stock gearing and want to change it. I'm 5'7" and weight 150lbs. The bike is going to be strapped and soften or stiffen up the rear I forgot. My old bike was a CBR 954 stretched 10" and ran a 40hp shot so SWB I haven't ran in a few years. So any info would be nice. Thanks

im 5'10" 180 pounds on a gen 1 with similar mods and -1 front works great for me if youll be running SWB for a while i would get a longer chain and put the axle as far back in the swingarm as you can. every little bit helps!

I was thinking -1 or -2 since the front is cheaper and I can put the axle further back. Just dont wanna do 1/4 mile on 1 wheel

i completely disagree. i can go WOT right off the start and still keep the front end down. its all in the clutch hand

looks like youre stretched so you wouldnt have to. all it takes is practice, practice, practice. and i only have to slip my clutch for the first 60' or so.
