I am thinking of re-gearing the bike for the strip. Just curious what you all think. Its an 06 10r, that wont be ridden much on the street. Right now its just lowered, but extensions are on the way if that matters. I was thinking of going -1 in the front and +2 in the rear. Let me know if this is good gearing or if I should change it, thanks.

Ahh duh. Is there any benefit to keeping a swb than going long other than being easier to ride on the street?
Stock WheelBase. :mrgreen: SWB is just more of a challenge and when you run better numbers than a bunch of stretched bikes it makes it that much sweeter. :thumbsup:

When I was running my 04 stock motor and slammed on the ground 15/39 was the gear I ran. I weigh 145lbs suited.
