Sleeper Drag Bike

Hey guys. I was wanting to get some ideas on what more to do with my bike to drop some et's. I have run a 6.56 in the 8th with stock wheel base, -1 in the front, secondaries removed, cats gutted, and a map tunned by ear (going to get a custom map on the 21st).

As of a few days ago I have installed a front strap, lowering link (only dropped 1"), and used road race tire (180).

I am wanting to make a bike that will appear to be a mid to high 6 bike, but be able to run low 6's to high 5's. And in doing so keeping the bike looking as stock as possible. Is this possible?

I know that my riding skills need a good bit more practice, seeing as how my 60' (not dropped or strapped) was 1.72, but what else can I do to drop my et's without making myself stand out.

I am considering the a and r baffles or just taking out the factory one's and replacing the packing.

What do you guys think about an air shifter or a little laughing gas?

Open to all ideas. And I don't want to extend the swingarm. I like to go riding in the mountains a good bit when I get off work.

Stock swingarm will limit you to 6.10 range probably max even with N2O and there are a few people that do that stock wheelbase already all motor...

gearing would do a lot better -1 in the front +3 in the rear, lower the front as much as possible, make sure you strap it good, cut the seat so you can sit lower and have better aerodynamics, custom map will help too, if you're racing take the air filter off you will gain a few ponies, miles and Lower ETs.

Forgot to put -1 on the mod list.

You think with +3 on the back will help?

Also when I get the bike mapped should I remove the filter? That would make it run a little rich on the streets. But I would rather have that then be lean on strip.

Also is 2" drop in the back streetable. I dropped the bike 3" when I first installed the links. And needless to say some of my plastic is alot thinner.

+3 in the rear you're gonna have a lot of seat time and play with the clutch a lot but it will definately help you a lot! If you're gonna be drag racing a lot i would rather tune the bike with the filter off!

You're already there for a stock height/stock wheelbase bike man. :)

You can hide a dynojet quickshifter pretty easily: just paint it black and hide the wires well. It won't make you much faster, but it adds up over time. Nitrous won't do much for you in the 1/8th unless you get on it early/out of the hole, and I don't think you'll be doing that on a SWB/stock ride height 10R that's been geared.

As far as keeping it stock looking, Nukedog is right on the money. A&R baffles sound ok if you pack them right, but you won't get much speed out of that either. I spot on map may be worth another mph or so, but you won't see a lot of time out of that either. If you can 60ft a stock bike in the low 1.70's, you're doing pretty well; certainly well enough to surprise some non-launching ass clown on a big bike. I've pretty much gone the same route you are thinking with my bike and you really hit a brick wall trying to go any faster without compromising the corner carving ability of the machine.

G'luck, though! :)

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

Well guys I ran the bike with just the front strapped and had trouble keeping the front end down still. Best time of the night was a 6.49 @ 115.9, 60' was 1.689.

Going to try the lowering lengths set at 2" drop in the back and see if that helps any. Guess I will be cutting my kick stand.

I might just break down and have the arm extended. I wonder how far cycle concepts can stretch the swingarm and still be able to go back to the stock length. On their website it says they do 0"-6".

What do you drag racers out there think? Is 6" of extension worth while? And how much of a drop in 60' time should that net (after I figure out how to launch with the extension)?

4-6" sounds pretty good!

Yo whats up spillman. This is Sana, I bought the Shearer topmount manifold and Direct port system from you for my DSM. What track do you go to? I ran a 6.7 112mph on my stock 05. I plan on lowering it soon and getting an exhaust and pcIII. You should run nitrous. I am probably gonna break down and get the Muzzy dry kit. I just wish I could hide the bottle.
