I thought about it myself...............then I realised, it's like racing in the rain on bald tires, all the skill in the world isn't going to overcome physics, if you ain't first................ you're last with all your skills lol

The fastest I went swb was my first year of racin in 06 and I went a [email protected] Fastest mph to this date I've gone on the motor. I tied it last year but have yet to beat it. Back then I was lowered 1.5, strap, stock gear, pc3, and a slip on. But I was a little lighter than I am now.. I bet it would be a wheelie monster if I leave this gear on it. :lol:

Man I might as well ever since I stretched mine a few months ago I keep launching like on a SWB 1st Gen be careful :crackup: I think the only reasons I am getting better times is because I changed gearing and added a sticky tire all at the same time :lol:

I will like to prove that though that would be fun, I think the next time I buy a new chain I should just go run it SWB with the more aggressive gearing and sticky tire. :idea: :helmet:

Just do it already.

Its not like you wont be able to go back.

And i think it is a lot more fun to watch SWB people go at it, chances are skill will prevail over bike more times than it does with stretched bikes.

swb is where it is at. Not to many that can ride swb go for it man
i agree man :mrgreen: anybody can go fast on a stretch bike but to make a swb bike go fast says alot.

I thought about it myself...............then I realised, it's like racing in the rain on bald tires, all the skill in the world isn't going to overcome physics, if you ain't first................ you're last with all your skills lol
wow you to man :eyecrazy: im shock to see this many of you guys thinking the same thang i am but its not that bad man just takes a good clutch hand, sticky tire and set of nuts :lol: and your good to go.

hey bloo you no you wanna put it back short :wink: but you can always ditch the extensions and see wat you can get out of her bc you was runnin some pretty good times when it was short man with less gearing.

I went back SWB bec i miss riding it hard on the backroads. Ill say this though once u go back to SWB u might as well leave the gearing the same bec if u change it back to stock gearing or whatever its gonna feel like giant turd. I kept mine -1,+5 and its a freakin BLAST! plus everyone elses bikes feel like giant turds to me know bec my gearing is the new stock to me
