I know Pro Street dosen't.

why'd she say you had to have wheelie bars? she think your gonna flip it ?

I ran a bar on my street / drag bike a long time ago. A couple of cons to consider (or pass on to your wife)

First, many states don't allow bars on the street. I have one ticket in NY to prove it.

More importantly, you will probably have to run a strut and they stink on the street. With a strut and bars, its ulikely that you will get a shinko to hook. Most bar bikes run slicks at low pressure, and the slick provides the compliance required to keep traction on the track. Without that compliance, the bar will unload the rear tire, and you will light the tire right up. As the tire spins, the bike comes down off the bars and if it goes sideways it can get ugly if a wheelie bar wheel catches.

Unless the bike is much lower and has a slick, I would argure (to your wife) that the bar makes it less safe.

Good looking Busa and funny post. Ask your wife to meet you halfway and just get you a set of leathers! Mine did for my birthday instead of the Nitrous or air shifter.

Good looking gear. Many mishaps have been walked away from when guys have had their gear on. As stated above also..............If you strap it, extend it, etc... it should be fine. Unless you are sitting on the limiter and dump the clutch I would not worry. Go and watch a few times and start slow. Post your progress on here and continue to ask questions. I started out posting on here and asked many many many questions. I was even posting before I made a pass as soon as I got the 2006. I knew I would be at the track I just swore oaths upon oaths to my wife that I would keep it stock. It is still a stock motor:whistle:. The tranny may be coming out this winter so the motor is getting freshened up of course:laugh:. Good luck
