    pull your wallet out... get a clutch about 70" wheelbase and sum gogo juice!(nitrous) and somebody to help install and dial in bike.

    A good Head and Cam package w/ heavy duty valve springs, good chasis, with a 60 shot should get you there with a good tune. Just my 2cent

    It really depends on what you wanna go. A stock motor on a 40 shot on a 08 1k will get you 5.50's easy if your around 68-70 inches and you leave the line on most of it. I've seen 5.30's on a fully dressed 06 with a 50 shot on it Leavin the line 100 percent no delay bout 69 inches long. That's with 160 suited rider tho.

    my fat ass went 5.37 on my 04 zx10 with a head and cam package and a 45 shot. so it can definitely can be done. it will take you alot of seat time more than anything

    It can be done for cheaper with Nitrous and a really good chassis setup. Seat time is the key.
