My 09 1000

Stock wheel base it went 9.84 with a 1.57 60", just lowered with a slip on, and no tuning of any kind.

Sits exactly the same now with an arm, and -1, +2, still no tuning or other mods.

Just a question about what you said about correcting the geometry in the front. What does that mean exactly? Im about to lower my K3 using the 3 hole lowering links in the back and sliding the forks up in the front. I believe the holes in the lowering links allow the stock height, then 1 1/2", then 3". Ill be going down 1 1/2" front and back then using a front strap to stop the expansion on launching. Hoping this will help lower my et's.

Re: Post your pics/vids of what you take down the track

I managed a 9.96@146.9 last weekend on a stock 2011 thou (has a pipe & air filter only).
So aside from lowering & gearing, what are the best value for money mods I should be looking at?

Re: Post your pics/vids of what you take down the track



Just picked up a week ago. Planning on shaking it down for the first time Thursday in the 1/8th.

Used to race a 00 Honda CBR 929RR. Fastest pass in the 1/8th I had on it was a 6.70 @ 106.

Re: Post your pics/vids of what you take down the track

Had my second run ever on the old gixxer. Pretty happy. Still more improvement but that will come with seat time. Also jagged a perfect light.
