Bike of the week and ET slips

Here's a slammed Gixxer for the CLSB bike of the week. And ET slips for the doubters.

My wife thinks we're a bunch of Top Gun wannabes with our call signs, so for future reference, I'm Roger

I never doubted, those things are quick. Did you take some stickers off or something, it looks...different.

Yeah, I "removed" the stickers at BHF and then covered the evidence with white vinyl.

Actually, I was pretty much ignoring the reaction times and concentrating on the launch. At 66 a perfect light is .0000 A red light will show as a negative R/T.

How did you lower the Gixxer and how long does it take to convert it to and from that state. I have been getting an itch to take mine to the strip as well.

I can flip it back in about 45 minutes to an hour. That is lowering the rear, slipping the front forks through the triple clamp, and changing the kick stand.

I made my own lowering links for the rear (+1" link lowers the rear about 3 inches). I loosen up the triple clamps and slide the forks through about 2 inches. The kickstand is from my old Gixxer that I modified to work with the new one. If you can get a kickstand off e-bay or something just cut the end off, shorten it and weld the foot back on.

Or, you can buy lowering links, adjustable kickstands, kill switches and bling it out at Schnitz Racing.:-

Iíve been told Schnitz makes good stuff. Iíve been waiting a Schnitz lowering link for 6 weeks now and they still canít even tell me when Iíll get it, they do have my money though Iím getting ready to cancel my order and take my $$$ back.

BTW. If anyone is interested in purchasing a lowering link for a 929/954, Iím selling the one off my bike. Itís has a stock position, 2Ē, 4Ē for drag racing.

I think Schnitz has a machinist make parts for them so the problem may not be with Schnitz, it could be a supplier. Not that it matters, they should have the stuff they advertise. I'm just saying it may not be true with other parts ordered from them.

I'm confused.....I thought you are riding the new bike, and it was lowered You mean it isn't lowered yet Anna?

My bike is lowered, but the lowering link is a 2" & 4" link for drag racing. I though the 2" position would work for me, but it drops the bike too much. I'm riding it but not liking it too much since it doesnít corner that well. I've ordered a Schnitz "adjustable" link a while ago but it hasn't come in yet. I think I need to lower the bike like 1.25Ē Ė1.5Ē so itís low enough for me to reach and still be able to corner without problems.

Basically, I need to raise it some.
