The only thing I would take from the list you posted would maybe be the power commander. maybe.

Dont worry about the BMC race filter, not worth it, especially for the street, and +1 on the suspension!

if you raced and you were fast then you could use them.

Lot of money to spend and your not getting much in return.

True, but I do some occasional drag racing.

I had that setup on the old gix and I loved it when it came time to do a little draggin.

get with Patrick, he'll fix you up on the suspension, good deals over there for sure..

the best mod is improving the rider by far. The susp. will make a huge diff. I wouldn't worry about the quick shifter unless you get a smoking deal. maybe even change to an aftermarket steering damper.

iunno, seems like suspension would be a waste for him...the 1krr already handles extremely well. also for the type of riding he says he does, doesn't really seem like he's anywhere close to maxing out the stock stuff, so 1500 on new better stuff, just doesn't seem like it would be used.

right, but if he's not even using the stock suspension, he'd barely feel a difference with the aftermarket suspension setup. i don't know too many drag racers with an ohlins rear shock and RT forks running around. i mean, the only thing he's going to notice is a more compliant ride over bumps. hardly worth the 1500+ price tag for his type of riding.

true but if he has the $$ is burning a hole in his pocket might as well spend it on stuff that may help him and make every want to be racer (myself included) request a towel every time we see the bike:notworthy

lol. Thanks for the comments guys. I don't know that the suspension is a road I'm going to go down just yet. Got the PCIII on, and waiting on my other parts to show up.


I'm looking into having a lowering link made with a stock, and a 3inch position on one link so I only have to adjust it, not replace it every time I want to go to the track.

Oh well Tom....
Not everyone wants the same out of thier bike as we would want out of our bikes...to each his own. If drag racing is all he is concerned about, then maybe he went the right direction. I personally would have gone the other direction though. Actually I went both on my GSXR...

If he is drag racing then I think gearing, lowering links and straps, shift kit (so sweet for drag racing), and then clutch plates and springs depending on how much drag racing he does and how well the OEM ones are performing/lasting.

A good rear shock set-up is still important for a good drag racing launch. Can the stock one be adjusted well enough for the job?

A stock shock can be set up well enough to drag race. Unless you extend the swingarm. Then all deals are off.

But gearing is a good idea as well as straps and the other items you mentioned.

I have a shifter on my quad that is made for drag racing. It is awesome. Clutchless shifts with the push of the button. Both directions! It kills the ignition for a mSec. and allows the shifter to pop it into gear.

+1...

Patrick is still the man to see, if I'm not mistaken he has a family member who is pretty involved in the straightline sport.

I agree with you on the drag racer deal, but I thought he was saying that he used it as a daily driver with the occasional drag race...

Anyway, sounds like the he already made up his mind before he asked us what we thought... "PCIII already came in, waiting for the rest of the parts"

i said a more compliant ride with the upgraded suspension, not a stiffer ride, quite the opposite actually.
