Bought the bike two years ago with 90 miles. Got a taste for drag racing after my uncle invited me out at the end of the season two summers ago. I use to watch him when i was a kid so I jumped at the idea. After two maybe three days out at the end of the summer, i was hooked. This summer I took part in most of the races for the season. Qualified for the division 7 finals down in woodburn my rookie year. I was overwhelmed and couldnt cut a light to save my life.

Specs
2008 1125r
200-210lbs rider
Fastest time: 10.60 with no modification except lowering it and a barker pipe.
1in lower spring in the rear.
Strapped Front End
Barker Exhaust

I plan on swapping a 1190 engine and wiring harness into the chassis. A wheelie bar has been sourced. Launch control and an air shifter are next.

Any knowledge is appreciated.


If anyone knows where to source a chain conversion, let me know.

Maybe a custom extended swing arm that youre not using

Opinions Welcome

Sounds good so far, I was just at 11.00 with completely stock and about the same size (still had my plate on the back from where I rode it to the track ha)

DME Racing in Winston Salem NC has done some arms for these, contact them.

I have a second 1125R that I am trying to figure out what to do with, one idea is dragbike too, but in a different/better frame for it.

There is also a drag section near top of home page

Unfortunately, yes.
Once AHDRA went away the whole scene sort of slumped

Vance had a lot of work (swingarm) done at the shop I mentioned.

GREAT GUY!
Raced with him for about 6 years with AHDRA
