Man its all on how extreme you wanna go. If your really lookin to get nasty you can go 10-12 over and gear the hell out of it. Mine right now is 6 over and as low as I can get it -2 +2 and my best 1/8th now is like a 5.94. So It all depends if your into hittin corners on the street and stuff. You prob don't wanna go that long. 6in will help you quite a bit especially if you gear the hell out of it. But still be perfectly streetable..

i dont wanna go dat extreme lol... i was thinking around 62in wb would be enuff and still be streetable. once i stretch her i can get more aggressive with the gearing but ive seen pics of your bike and i like the way it sits.

Thanks man. Well right now my bike is a low as it will go. With my strap all the way tight my header is barely an inch off the ground. But I must say with this gearing your bike will be a monster off the line!!! I just switch out the dog bones for normal street riding cuz if your not careful you'll be needing a new oil pan...
