Originally posted by JimGoFast curious as to what kinda of suspension work goes into a drag bike, dont most use struts in the back? and what do you do to the front, low budget is a strap but on the $$$ machines??
Kent uses a Hyperpro Shock modified and revalved for dragraing , he the front end is lowered , revalved,and uses hyperpro springs modified. I really am not sure about strapping bikes down other than a cheap alternative for the weekend racer
Kent also ran 7.42 out at byron two weekends ago! That track is in best condontion ever! Congrats to kent on the record!! everyone thought he was done but the man step down last year and said this year he would be back well guess he is!!
You would have to ask Kent what the benefits are , What kind of Shock do you have? The Hyperpro is only about $1190. I am not a dragracer so i can't relate to how the bike actually feels at the track. What i can do is translate what a rider tells me the bike isn't doing correctly and correct that problem.
