    Ok, I added the wheelie bar, slick, strut, going to Cecil Wednesday to do some shake down runs. A group of us are headed to Cecil on Saturday for the test and tune.

    Here is where I am currently:
    Avg 60ft 1.55
    Expected 1.35 w/bar

    Avg ET 9.38
    Expected 8.90's w/bar

    I also just ordered a 2 step, but won't have it to test until Saturday.

    Ok... I launched the bike at 7500,8500,9000, it just bogged. I think the height of the tire (26") simply killed the launch. Only managed a 9.53 and my 60 was 1.55 almost the same as with no bar. I think I need to go at least 2 down in the front and perhaps 3 up in the back.

    Was just looking thru 1/4 mile stuff. How have you progressed with wheelie bars. I have stock motor with much done in way of controls and chassis. Have been as quick as 8.96 at Beaver Springs (IHRA track north of you in Pa) I weight 170 without gear. 60ft 1.32 - 1.35 depending on the day. Stock clutch with MPS air lever & 2 step. Leave on a button @ 4100. Gearing 16 - 48. 6th gear runs into shift light between timing cones at end of track.


    Have been thinking of a visit to Cecil one of these days. How is the surface?

    I just tried shinko slick last week.(put a scratch on my rim installing wheel after tire mounted

    Still adjusting but think it will do ok 1.55 second pass

    More like a road raceing slick prob not getting as

    much contact with track as some dragslicks

    I did least leave with $50 nothing get excited over but ill take it.

    Do you have solid strut or monoshock?
