    good question but i would say no.... an 8.90 pass is usally a 5.60 in the 1/8 mile...im assuming with an 8.60 it would be a 5.45 pass in the1/8...which means with a short wheelbase... gonna need round 140mph with a 1.400 60ft....so a few bolt on mods aint gonna do it.. its gonna take some internal stuff to produce those #'s. if that bike does that... then imagine what it would do with a 12 over arm...

    Vanson sidewinder, and flat pan. Get the bike on the ground and take at least two teeth out of the rear or maybe just go up on the front. And let it eat. Not gonna be easy. But I'm sure there is a jockey on here somewere that can prob do it...

    I think its very obtainable . I do think to get it done you will need a flat oil pan and side winder .The bike will need to be as low as possible and geared properly.

    Lets just say this. The stock wheelbase that I ran Trae with was a 1430 and it was at 56 3/4" because I didn't cut the chain so it was the original factory o'ring chain on it and I was going faster than 8.90s and I weighed over 200 suited. So you take it from there.

    Let us know. I'd like to try a new bike again. The 08 busa was fun back in the day trying to squease everything out of it stock. I'm just afraid the new 14 is all hype. If its what they say it is I should go 90's myself
