When you lower a bike to drag race, is it better to have a soft rear shock setting or a hard rear shock setting?

I added 2 links to the new chain. It's not stretched if that's what you're referring to.

I made a strut (steel tube) to replace the monoshock on the GSXR in my avatar. You don't want suspension back there when you're trying to hook up.

i dunno if you wanna loosen the spring a lil or not i did. you want all the weight to transfer to the back tire. you want it to squat easily and come back up slow.

You need to adjust the compression and rebound on the shock. You could also send it off and have it revalved and new spring for your weight and bike set up, or you could buy a nice aftermarket shock.

tAke most of the compression out of the shock, and add rebound to it.

The compression adjustment is at the top. Remember what it was tho before you go messin with it incase you dont like it.
