    I use mps on all my bikes, c02 is nice cause u do not need a compressor, but I rather an on board compressor stored in the tail. Very easy , mount the bottle under the tank and add a pressure switch... I buy the full kits from dewayne at cycle concepts. Co2 would be hard to hide because it need to be accessible to refill... Hard to hide an air shifter because it uses a air ram mounted on the shifter... May want to look into an electric shift if ur trying to be a little sneaky

    not so much trying to be sneaky, it's not like my woman would know what it is. ;) Just not wanting a bottle hanging around outside the bike. I'll do some research and see if I can find a little spot to tuck a small bottle away. I'll have to look up cycle concepts. Thanks.

    Lift up ur fas tank and u will notice a small space on the brake side of ur motor, it will fit there if properly placed.

    Alternately you could run a quickshifter setup, basically a switch on the shifter that fires the killbox (rather than using the horn as described earlier). Doesn't help you with trying to get your feet up in time, though.

    I can't remember who said it looked like my bike isn't low enough but wasn't sure it it were the camera angle. The front may have been 1/4" lower at the track because I had someone helping me push it down.



    I didn't go to the track today. I checked the weather earlier and it looked like I would have a 8mph head wind so I just worked late. Now I'm kicking myself because I saw that it was ~-1100' DA. Maybe next week. I'm guess that I'll eventually have to drop the bike through the triple tree. I'll just keep playing with it as is and try to better myself before I try to better the bike.

    Okay, now y'all have me thinking about stretching my bike. There aren't too many options for my bike, as far as extensions. I've only found Roaring Toyz and FTD. I've never heard of FTD, are they any good. I don't like to skimp if I don't have to but just because I've never heard of them, that doesn't mean they aren't good. (I hope it's okay to post a link, if not, mods please remove)2011 GSXR 750 Swingarm Extensions | eBay Considering FTD is $135 and RT is $300, I figured I'd ask.
    I'm assuming I'd need a 150 link chain. If I do this I'll go with a 520 conversion and go -1/+2 (or +3). What chain kits do y'all recommend (can you post a link?) All the place I usually visit have 120 link chains, the longest I found was 140 link.
    So I have this feeling that by the Spring, I'll have the bike stretched, lowered more, and an air shifter on it.
