Nah, what zx racer did is smart. No bracket needed. Just strap em to the caliper. I mean, it is possible that there is going to be issues because it only goes to 1 caliper bolt instead of 2 like the brackets do, but its probably marginal if you do it right. Im sure you can attest to this zx right?

yep... wat i did has worked for me for yrs both on my zx10 and 636. all you need is (2) 1/2 inch longer bolts for the top mount caliper and (2) 1/2 inch grade nuts for spacing. everything will cost you under 5 bucks can't beat that :wink:

I hear ya buddy! Tryin to hit the 6.1 mark myself. Best pass to date is 7.199, but you know why, stock height SWB stock gear. Not really a drag bike. Goin low long and geared next trip. If I can get the front sprocket nut off Ill go -1 up front to complement my +5 rear lol. Bring da noise!!

It's a schnitz. It hit the header and its a little melted where you would pull it tight. It doesn't affect the reliability or the way it works. I can send you a pic if you want.
