    Default ZX10 traction question

    Wanting to put a 10-14 over ARM on my 04 ZX10, my question is, a few of the local dealers are telling me I won't get any kind of traction if I go this long. I've never owned a stretched bike so I'm unsure. I was planning on running a shinko hookup as well. Is this correct or will I still be able to hook fine? Thanks in advance for any help.

    10-14 over arm with a hook-up set at a good psi along with a good suspension, I don't see you having a hooking problem......

    I didn't think so, because i see a lot of people running at least 10 over with no problems. Just wasnt sure because I had 2 different dealers saying that I wouldnt hook. Thanks for the quick replies fellas

    The build is at a standstill right now lol. Saving up money again for pistons. Got another couple grand to spend. I have most of the big stuff still trying to find a front wheel that's not crazy priced.

    One I get pistons and bearings I can start assembling the motor

    Will the ZX14 shock bolt right up? Is always read of guys swapping to the busa shock, hadn't heard of using the ZX14 before.
