    Default gen 1 set up for dragracing help

    Hi guys,
    I've just purchased a stock gen 1 buses with a 6inch over arm. I intend to lower front and rear and fit air shifter and power one rear tyre.
    But what other cheap mods can I add to increase power or help get e.t down? I'm 200lb and not sure what gearing to go with.
    Any help is appreciated

    What do you plan on doing? Street bike, track bike, both?

    I would weld your clutch hub. Lower, strap, shed 1 front rotor, go down 1 in the front and add in the rear as you need. Tire tail fender liner, cut the seat down, and just practice.

    Nothing is.worth shaving a rotor. I would say ECU editor, gear, dyno session and seat time. And later on... Clutch and 40shot.

    Lightweight battery, aluminium subframe, 05-06Gsxr wheels, led tail lights and signals. If you get bored cut the kicksand and install piece of aluminium pipe to.shave more weight. 1st time you really need stopping power you will regret taking a rotor off.

    Thank for the input guys,

    I've read in places about the standard clutches "bucking" when trying to launch? is this what the mod is deigned to fix?

    The bike will be for the strip, no longer road use. I need to loose so weight over the winter too.

    There is absolutely no problem getting rid of a rotor. Try it and you will see. The fastest bikes in the world only run one. However if you don't feel safe don't try it.
