    no the busa shoc k was way to stiff with the cruiser link. even the stock shock if a bit stiff but seems to work well. the bike went 1.320 60ft the last time out

    So would you recommend going with the cruiser link and stock shock then instead of switching to a busa shock?

    i run a stock shock, never been adjusted yet, cut a 1.5 60ft so far, hoping for better next year on a pilot power with 38 psi. On the street it spins from a semi hard launch pretty bad, and if its below 50 degrees will spin at the top of 1st gear from a 50 roll pretty bad. If i ran less psi or when i am lowered it helps the spin, but after busting a oil pan being lowered on the highway i keep stock height on the road and lowered/strapped at the track. I ride to many backroads to be lowered also. I am hoping to cut 1.4 60fts on my set up next year, may need a shinko though. Stretch is very fun for rolling burnouts too

    Yeah I've been fortunate so far with my pan. Wanna send it off to be cut, but i gotta check into it some more to see if I can run a stock cut pan w/o having to switch to a sidewinder. Hear ya on the back roads lol. Plan on doin a shinko as well for the strip. How far you over on yours?
