Supposedly its runs around 11.8-12 seconds in the quarter. Why in the world are you buying a vstrom to drag race? Almost all conventional inline 4's will kill the vstrom in that type of environment. Mind sharing your reasoning or more details with us?

There are quite a few drags that are V-Twin only. But even at that why wouldn't you go with the SV1000 instead of the DL1000? Seems it would be better suited and have advantage for your intended purpose.

What about a tl1000r with a few mods? Those are supposed to run 10 second quarter miles fairly easily.

I gotta ask to why a Vstrom for dragracing you are joking right? And it takes alot of mods and a good rider to get a tl1000 in the 10's it can be done but it ain't easy. I have a buddy with an sv1000 with yosh slipons that is a pretty good rider and he goes 11 teens and hes 200lbs his 130 pound brother rode it and went 10.96. I'm at the track almost every weekend but not on a vstrom. I run my ZX14 been 9.42 so far last season, my goal this year is an 8 sec slip.

I don't see why you couldn't get an SV1000 into the 10's. Motorcycle tests have.

More power to you joe t. Dare to be different, and run whatever the hell you want! Drag racing through the 70's, 80's and early 90's was a blast because of the Competition Eliminator and Modified Production classes where there was a huge variety of car and drivetrain combinations, all running index. The later years have brought us cookie cutter kit cars, computers and delay boxes, and utterly boring drag racing.
What you are proposing to sounds like fun, and will add something unique to the field. You'll probably end up getting it to run pretty stout and consistent. When you get it built, we want pics.
