I bought a set for my 871100.....from pingle for around 300.00.......this included a strut and all the hardware and it bolted on to the swingarm no problem.

Unless you serious about dragracing I wouldn't buy them. Wheelie bars and DOT tires are not a good combo. The ideal set up with the bars would include- a slick (which they make for a stock 86-87 rim) and a strut is also very important to have. If you use wheelie bars with a shock you may end up blowing it. If you use wheele bars and a DOT tire you'll have one hell of a time "hooking up"..........

-bars
-strut
-slick

Use the 3 together and you'll have a good starting setup.

You don't need no stinkin' wheelie bars!!!


You need a different track

What track wants you to have bars if you run faster than 10.5? That is ridiculous. Where is this track?

When I was racing my old 89 1100 I had a 4in extended swingarm and slick but no bars. A buddie was in the mid 9's on a Busa with no bars or extension but with a slick.

Bones, you said you had a 4 inch extention and a slick, on your 1100. I've seen bikes with six and eight inch ones on DOT tires
. How much is too much with DOT's. I just got mine, it's a '89 GSXR-750 with 4.5 inch extention and lowered 3 inches all the way around. Still trying to find the best set up.
