seems like anyone doing anyone doing anytype of dragging....dropping a tooth in the front should be step #1 for any serious racer. maybe stretching it also.

Go with a 998 kit you want regret it, my old 99 zx9 went 5.80's at 123 at 61 inches with 998kit, stock head , stock carbs jetted, stock cam, muzzy pipe, u4 fuel at 61 inches.Had mid 140's 60 ft, later on had AdamsPeformance in N.C. put me in carrilo rods,6 mil stroker crank and a 60 shot of nos. The bike went 5.60's at 130 mph in the 1/8. Also had Marchesini wheels.:cool:

With a MPH of 128 i think you could get into the 10.40 range depending on your 330 time. Practice is the only thing that you need to get there.

That bike ispicking up decent back half for your weight and what it is. Try a little more rpm and longe clutch slip at launch...

When I first was trying out Drag Racing I was on a 1999 ZX9R. The only Mods was Full Muzzy Exhaust, Factory Jet kit I installed myself no tune, Stock height and Stock Wheelbase, Stock Gearing and probably weighed about 190-200lbs suited back then.

It’s ok if you guys laugh at my time LOL but I did 11.3s BUT trapped @ 138.8mph. :cool:

Shows you with just a few bolt-ons how strong a ZX9R is :thumbsup:

Seems about 3-4mph more than it would get down here. Never seen a 9R without a bigbore kit or N2O trap that around here... Good mph...
