Tell them when you pull up your bike has a tipover kill switch integrated into the wiring system and you should be good for the kill tether,snell 2000 helmet ,leather gloves,ankle high leather boots or tennis shoes,leather pants if you can go over 120mph in the 1/4,and a nhra license if you do better than a 9.99..more than likely the last two the first few times you won't have to worry about them,but before the night is over you may need leather pants..work on getting a good light and good sixty foot,when yo get them down get your 330 and 1/8 mile down after that apply for your license cause your gonna get faster.

the most important thing you will need is to practice up on crying and whinning and making excusses, and bitching ,moaning, name calling, and general bad sportsmanship is good to have too

Just my opinion and obsevration, but drag racers seem to be the worst sports of all, vaery rarely do they just say "yep you were faster than me" and they argue like little kids. When you race for a full day on a twisty track and get beat, you dont complain cause you know why you got beat, you suck

How many times have you raced your bike at the strip?

I have only raced at the strip a couple times when I had my GSXR 600, and it was just to see what it would run. I have never competed on the drag strip, it's just not that much fun to me nor do I have the cash to make my bike fast enough to really compete. Thats why I race my ATV, I have enough cash to make it race worthy the rest is all rider skill which is free.

My 600 did manage to pull an 11.28 in the 1/4 @ 5000 ft, and I am sure with a skilled rider it could have broke into the 10's, but it only had a K&N filter and 1 tooth smaller front sprocket and was my daily driver so it would never have been enough to be competitive against modified bikes.

And you guys just proved my point, the first things you did was be negative

But I started it huh

I wasn't negative, I just figure you didn't dragrace. There is a LOT of sh!t talking that goes on in the sport, percieved by outsiders as negative, if you spent some time at the strip, you would know that it is one of the most close-knit communities you could possibly be a part of.

If your track elevation really is 5,000 feet, I have a hard time believing your times on that 600cc bike with only those mods.....

why, that time sucks! it took me like 10 runs to get it too

first run I ever did on it was 12.33. I was too scared of wheeling it and dumping it so I didnt launch nearly hard enough.

but yep it was at the Albuquerque intl drag strip, so actually a little over 5000'. But still not that special, onlt 11.28, come on that is still slow. I was beating honda cbr 900's and f4i's and beat a Busa too, but that was all their fault. There was another busa out there that night that was running low 10's and I really think he was just farting around.

Like I said it was just for grins, but I had never run that fast before so i remember the times. All my cars I ever ran were 14 and 15 sec cars

so to break into the 11's was cool for me.

It was a 03 GSXR600, if that helps you any. I also got the speedo to read 172 on I40 before, but that was with a smaller front sprocket so I suspect it was really around 150 something?

Go ahead and let the flaming begin.

You better call SPORTRIDER because that's a record. No way do I believe that time with those mods on a 600cc bike at 5,000'! You can claim it all you want but I don't think you are going to find anyone to believe that.....
