That is awesome. I bet it moves out! Planning on extending the swingarm any more?

edit - I don't mean swap out the swing arm, but more pull the wheel further back.

Looks like if he adds some more chain to it he can move the rear wheel back another 4 inchs or so. Nice bike.

Yea, that was my edit. I was curious if he planned on doing that and extending it back all or most of the way. Gotta figure if he is running the 1/4, even strapped down, that thing is going to come out hard and try to lift all the way down the track. I would think you want it back as far as possible.

I had the wheel at that position the last time we used it, we were trying to get our fastest wheelie time, I had it at 177mph on the back wheel while spinning it up, the bike would do more but I bottled it:D

What kind of times are you trying to run? low 7's?
7.3 was our best time last time we run but we've made a lot of mods to it and I've lost a shed load of weight myself so we will have to see!

Well we both know to pick up a couple tenths at that e.t. will take a lot more power from what you had. Either way, here is hoping some 7.1's or better :D

Main reason my cars are gone. lol Starts getting expensive when you are not satisfied with the times. Sounds like you will be happy with whatever it runs as long as it is within range of your expectations.

One of my best friends had a real bad spill on the strip this year, probably never walk again never mind ride, so that's taken the need out of it a bit for me, but I've been walking past the bike for the last 12 months with a holed piston so I just had to rebuild it, to be honest I get much more out of building the custom 9s and fenders etc, and with that I usually make a few $$ as a posed to blowing **** loads, these fender kits have really taken off, I'm shipping them all over the world, and I've got a few more fender ides to crack on with:bigthumbsup:
