Hey guys.. Thought I would share some info and pics of my next project.



Just got done putting in a KX80 engine in it for the time being until I can figure out which direction I really want to go







Perfect spot for the radiator







Exhaust fits real snug too















Just needs a little body prep and some paint. Also going to stretch the swingarm about 4-6"s . I miss my old drag YSR so I am planning on building another one.



Thanks for looking.

sick, got an air shifter ? get that swingarm extended like a mile and you will be set. my buddys brand new cbr 600 with tuning, race header and exhaust, and alil bit of gearing, with extended swingarm, FOOT SHIFTING and launching at 10grand he has been a best of 10.90 @ 124MPH in the 1/4mile... this is only his 3rd shot out this weekend so we will see because now he has the AIR SHIFTER mounted and filled and ready to rock. we are hoping for 10.70's @ 125mph area...



my other buddy has a stock setup except the exhaust on a CBR 1000 foot shifting stock swinger stock everything but exhaust and NO PC tuning, he has gone a best of 10.70 @ 134 MPH thats a ten MPH difference and only 2 tenths faster haha. the 60ft times b\w the two bikes are ALMSOT IDENTICAL usually around 1.80-1.85, so u can see how the setup on the 600 is all OVER that 1000... obviously the MPH difference comes from the gearing. the 600 goes through the 1/4mile in 5th gear the 1000 goes through in 4th and he is JUST gettin it in 4th at the MPH strip which is 60ft from the E.T. stripe....



what simple things can make a bike WAY faster in a straight line.

just thougth id add that.



P.S. i got a 2000 yamaha v-star cruiser 650 stock, shaft driven, been a best of 15.32 i believe, i forget the MPH i think its like 85 or 88mph HAHA



Also, we got a HONDA RUCKUS for a pit bike at the strip ;) i love it

Thanks... Here is a pic of my last one I built.. I no longer have it and I dont remember what kind of wheel I used for the rear. I know it came off of a quad front wheel and tire though. I will have to find out.

With the last bike , it had an old air cooled YZ125 motor in it with Nitrous on the wheelie bar and it ran 11.22 @122mph in the 1/4. We could only get 3 passes out of a motor with the bottle. But it was one hell of a ride.

that is a fast time for the quarter


He practically lives at the track LOL. He and his wife campaign a SOHC Honda 4 door NA racecar. "Pinkie" Not to mention he helps countless people including myself with their builds. He's got no reason to lie about his quarter times LOL. Not that that's what you were inferring. I'm sure he had a few tricks in that motor.



Did I mention his Dad is a HALL OF FAME drag racer from the 60's and 70's:D?
