actually extending that swingarm to close to 70' will overleverage the stk ten shock, good cheap option is busa shock, got one i will donate to u for shipping. 60's and et will fall with that setup. good seat to lock u in place will raise confidence level to leave higher/harder. arm, shock and seat probably ur best options to go quite a bit faster. all u lack to run fast and consistient is chassis/clutch work.

I'd be more than happy to take that shock off your hands. Send me a message with your paypal details and i'll send some $$ your way for shipping and your generosity.
Any recommendations on a seat? I've thought about buying a tore up one on ebay and having it redone with thing foam with a back step, or, going with a composite one. Either way, i think it'd be about $100.

Hey bud this is Anthony on the gen4 u raced at woodburn. I'll tell u want man I found some really cool trick to get faster. Still rocking 16 46 sprockets and it's perfect. Mid 6th gear and 151mph traps at 210lbs. I also picked up another "get this" 4-5mph l shot u not. All I did was gut the stock intake tube and paired it to the mwr full race filter. I swear that filter added 8-10whp. I know it doesn't make sense but it worked. And I'm installing autotune this week hopefully to see where I'm at with afr so I can dial it perfect. Still rockimg u4.4 gas as well. Going out next Sunday to shoot for that elusive 8.9 run. Still hovering in the 9.3-9.4 area. Gonna get crazy on my launch this time. Was at 8-9k but now I'm gonna hit it at 10-11k. The 1.58-1.63s just aren't cutting it. Lol. Hit me up brotha.

Are you running this filter?

4-5mph is something that I wanna get too lol. Was your 151 traps with that new filter and on u4.4? Any other info on your bike?

I was able to run some 8.8's and 8.9's a few weekends ago in good cold MN October air trapping high 152 to low 153 on pump gas. I'm about 200lbs suited and felt like I was hitting the limiter on the -1/+7 sprockets so went to -1/+6 and seemed to do a bit better.

The bike is a simple setup. Extensions maxed out with 16 46 525 sprockets. Graves/cat delete, mwr Sbk "$280", filter and worth every penny. It's the inverted design that works so well. Helps all cylinders get maximum even flow, gutted intake tube and lowered about an 2 inches. I also modded the stock seat down as well as lowered the foot pegs. Gonna install bazzaz/autotune in next day or two and tune for mr12 for last race of year this Sunday. Been running u4.4 on just a flash. But we race at 2700ft at firebird raceway. So bikes rich no doubt and why the intake mods helped so much probably leaning it out some. We will see soon how much the afr tune and mr12 help.

I thought about running no air filter at the track but just get too nervous to do it. Do you usually pick up much by running no filter vs say a bmc race or equivalent?

Sounds like a pretty sweet setup! If you don't mind sharing, what'd you run and trap before the filter/gutted intake and what'd you run after?

I have my stock intake gutted too and can see how that filter could make a difference. Back when I worked at a car shop, my boss picked up 25hp on his dsm just by changing out his small, shitty, old air filter for a new and much bigger filter.

Hey Anthony-
just saw your posts. I'm running a BMC race filter, took the added parts out of the airbox (pre-filter screen thing). Not sure how much gutting of the intake I can do. Aside from the air inlet wrapping around the frame, it's pretty much a straight shot into the airbox. My box doesn't have actual "ram tubes" like the old ZX9's.

I now have a 15/46 setup, also my gen 3 will be getting a Thompson 10-14 swingarm and slammerz fork cartridges and a busa rear shock.

I'm sure some u4.4 will find it's way in my tank as well.

With the current tune i'm running, even with the u4.4, my afr stayed consistent at 13.5:1
