Was wondering if anyone had purchased straps to pull the front down for dragging lately? I had bought some for my 01 CBR 1100 XX a while back and ended up never even using them but I was thinking they were only $40 or $50. I am wanting to put the Max on the strip one or two times just to see what it will do, so I was looking at where I could get these but most everything I saw was about $200. Does that sound right? Like I said this would not be an on going thing but I just don't want to pay $200 for 6 or 8 runs. Anybody know of any that are not as expensive but are made for the Vmax. TIA

Did you ever find a strap set-up for the Vmax ? If so where ?

Get a set of rear struts. To replace the rear shocks.mine are 11.5 in.so lowers the bike. I lowered my fork tubes.At the tree to have equal ride height.
It's a fun time at the strip.

That is so difficult to do on a 2nd gen,. I think I might want to dislocate my thumbs first..... If it was a dedicated drag bike only then maybe....
