plan on strapping front, lowering back and stretching azz end, question is. has anyone ran a non o-ring chain to drag race, reason i ask is because i will not be racing that much, maybe 3 or 4 weekends, and didnt know if it was necessary to buy a more expensive o-ring chain for this, i thought o-rings just keep the dirt out, anyways any and all input would be appreciated.

BUddy of mine has broke 2 non o-ring chains and has done major damage to the bike each time. First time the case was busted and the next time it ripped his tail section off and grazed his leg....So if I were you I would invest in a top of the line chain if youre gonna be stressing it that much....I know a couple of guys that run turbos on thier busa and they use ZZZ chains.......good luck and be safe..:thumbsup:

thanks for the info., so are o-ring chains stronger, even if they are both the same strength.

X-ring chains are the best by far IMO.....I wouldn't put anything else on my bike.

I think the ZZZ chains (I'll get the exact name for them later) are best for the stretched bikes......get on google and type in ZZZ chain and see what comes up.....:mrgreen:

Drag racing the 10 is a blast. Just don't loop the bitch and you will be alright. I'm getting my launch down pact so i'll be posting my numbers pretty soon...It will be a low 9.......

a ZX10r is good for drag racing maybe faster than a 14r and a busa..

your on crack if you think a 10r is faster then a busa or 14r.:headshake busa's at our local dragway are running 7's. the zx10's dont even compare. if you want to drag race buy a busa or zx14 but if you just want to mess around a little stay with the 10r.:eek:ccasion1

Running 7's with what mods????? Nitrous, a 8 inch extension, with motor work???? don't come on here saying that an out of the box busa is running 7's....get real.. I've beaten many a stock busa on my stock 10....don't give me that shit....

you are such a dumb a$$. tell me where i said out of the box (stock).you are trying to put word in my mouth that i never said. for drag racing the 10r dont even compare to a busa or zx14 and will never compare to a busa or 14. you can do so much with a busa and get the power to the ground.(and no not out of the box with mods).the busa is a better drag bike then the 10r hands down.

So I have been stretching the stock chain every pass on the drag strip. I would tighten it and stretches again. I am running a wheelie bar and slick at the races I'm allowed to and take off the wheelie bar for street legal events. So last weekend the chain (after yet another tightening job) jumps off the sprocket. So I'm going to go back up one tooth on the front (to 16) and then since I need more gear going up to 45 on the back. I'm going to go to the EK525MVX. I've had more luck with those in the past. Do you think this set up will work, or am I going to have the same problem again??
