Don't know if any of you guys are into
straight liners but here goes gonna start a build thread anywahs. K1 gsxr 750 I'm gonna keep the engine mods quiet for now, I have a few I plan on calling out on our local grudge circuit if you know what I mean. USPS is dropping the ball right now so it will probably be next weekend before a lot of my parts will be in. Looking for suggestions on the sub frame I have a few race tail fairings laying around but idk what I really want to do with it. Mainly has to stay low I love the kicked up tails on fighters but sadly this isn't a real fighter.

I'm in. I've got a buddy that drags a bike and I've been thinking about it myself. I used to drag a door car and a rail. It's a fun sport that I miss.

Start cutting weight!
Nice! Also building a 302 Windsor but its a long term project.

I've considered removing the rear brakes and half of the front, but I want them on there for the first track day for stability, then I'll think about taking them off.

I hate to mention this but Busa calipers won't fit your stock forks.

Keep us posted as I'm lowering an stretching my old Gsxr as well.

Later, Doug

Early gen 1 busa calipers should fit from what I've seen either way I'll put them to use somehow or another

Busa, SRAD, TL and 88-95 Gsxr750, 89-97 Gsxr1100, and 92-93 Gsxr600 calipers are 90mm spacing.

The 01-03 Gsxr600, 00-02 Gsxr750, 01-02 Gsxr1000 (or close to those years) are 63mm.

I see says the blind man, any opinion on whether or not the 6 pistons on the 1000 are actually better than, The 4s on the 600/750 I've been getting conflicting reports on this

The 4's are smaller, weigh less and have more than enough force to stop a bike destined for drag duty. Think light. Ounces add up to pounds real quick.

Keep the rear brake as a fail safe. Don't rely on just one.

There's pretty parts, then there are parts that so the job. I.E. stainless brake hoses and other braided lines look nice, but they're heavy, expensive and what purpose would they really serve you on this bike?

Weight is as important as hp. Shave everything that's unused. I don't just mean entire parts like signals or mirrors, I mean everything. Does this part really need a bunch of bolts, or will some aluminum rivets hold it just fine? What can you drill holes in? Any superficial covers that aren't holding in liquid? Throw them away. Do you need full switchgear? Nope. Do you need an ignition key? Nope, chop the mount off,too. Run aluminum tube in the clipons and trim an inch or so from the length. It's weak, but you're not looking for daily driver ruggedness.

And definitely do not run a sealed chain. There's an insane amount of drag involved with a couple hundred o-rings dragging between plates.

Shaving weight is half the fun of the game IMO.

I know some of the Zx11 guys swap their older 4-piston Tokico's for the Gsxr1000 6-pots but Shiny's right the current setup is more than enough. Look at some purpose built drag bikes and see the small Performance Machine caliper and rotors.

I'm starting to agree the only reason im doing it is I had a jackass playing with the levers while the calipers were off and it blew the pots all the way out and I just don't trust them not to leak after rolling around on the garage floor so 4 pot calipers it is.

Rubbersdown im thinking of going the other route as far as power adders go (bottle) just have to figure out if I can run multiple a/f maps on a pc5 or switch to an 06+ harness and run a bazzazz controller
Shiny I completely agree on the weight issue

Check over on Psychobike but I think after a certain HP level (30-40HP) you might have to go with a wet system as the stock injectors can no longer keep up. I could be completely wrong as I'm use to dealing with carbed bikes.
