man i hate to be such a grammer pain in the ass, but damn that is hard to read. According to 1killer1liter he thinks extensions are ment for hair only...and wheelie bars are the new thing. Alot of other people use the extensions and i guess they will probally chime in on lenth of it.

I was only trying to make it easier for the sake of other people. Having a one sentence paragraph with a lack of spaces in some parts sucks to read. So melbr1 you can stfu if you’re not going to contribute to this thread.Thanks and goodbye ;). 1st10ever your times seem to be good already, but the way I would go about doing it is to start with a setting that you feel comfortable with and work your way back. Find the g-spot per say where it doesn’t spin and it doesn’t pop wheelies. Good luck at the strip, let us know how it goes...

It will vary from rider to rider and bike to bike. But 20incher is right. Why worry about length? Get a wheelie bar.

It's breaking loose huh? Well try to adust the suspension and have someone who knows what they are doing assist you with that. Try switching to a perelli super corsa sc2 or sc1 or even an sc0 tire in the rear 180/55/17.
If it still doesn't hook try leaving at different rpm's than you have been. Maybe a lower one and work your way up from there. Also drop the rear tire pressure to around 20psi and work your way up from there until it spins then back off a couple of psi. ANd if this doesn't work then give me the bike and I'll show you ..lol. Seat time is the key to any combination you have to get used to the set up and learn what works before you start changing stuff around or you can wind up in an even worse situation than you started in. Good luck.

You are going to have to learn how to ride it. Longer swingarms keep the front end down at the expense of traction. Less pressure in the rear tire might help grip (20lbs-maybe less at the strip). Move the rear wheel forward a bit, that will help weight transfer for better traction. Talk to others with similar setups, some suspension adjustments may have to be made.

Definately need a good soft tire, Shenko U-soft will do it, dwayne is selling them right now at Cycle Concepts for $125 shipped.

Set the bottom adjutment on the shock all the out. I run 15 psi in my Shenko and Launch about 7000- 7500 on 16/43 Gearing. Im just getting back into it but that's the combo that has gone the fastest for me so far.
