an air shifter or clutchless shifting thing from dynojet w/the ignition module would probably reduce some time as well.

chain and sprockets to gear it down a bit.

not to long ago when they ran 9's on a stock 600, they lowered the rear with drop dog bones, lowered the front by using limiting straps on the forks and dropping the clamps down on the forks, and a one up tooth on the rear.

besides that its all practice/clutch control/ throttle.

practice your starts mostly. Drop air pressure in the rear, make sure you are leaning as far forward as possible to be able to apply the most power with least amount of wheelie.

just my 2 cents

reaction time has nothing to do with ET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you can sit at the light for an hour after it turns green, elapsed time(et) only starts when you break the start beam, and ends when you break the finish line. Lower it, strap the front, gear the rear, and practice launch to 60'. On a bike, launch is 90% of et, practice, look at 60' time and mph. post it up and I'll tell you where to go from there. Imo, I think the best you will be able to do is 9.30s(not consistant) with stock legth. You will burn clutchs, so be ready.

yea clutches on these bikes are not made for dumping over and over. busa's can handle the abuse alot better but gixxers are made for road tracks not necessarily drag strip. A good clutch could make all the difference int he world.

call Motorcycles Unlimited and get him to tune your suspension for what your tryin to do. may be the best $25 you ever spend.
