1/4 miles times of the DL 1000 last nite

the bike is done 2007 DL 1000 6" over swing arm extensions 2 brothers slip ons, JSD (TRE switch), air shifter w/on board air compressor w/gauge & regulator, 16 tooth sprocket front, forks lowered w/ new internal spacer & pushed up in triple trees 6", new rear tire stleath 003 by shinko 150x60x17, cut down seat, lowering rear links 1.5", shift light
the bike runs great made 6 1/4 mile runs I weigh 265 lbs. best time was 12.03 @108.64 other times were 12.11, 12.15, 12.29, 12.13, 12.05 all were 107.96 - 108.77 rear spring or valving is way 2 soft for any hard launch w/the swingarm ext. the bike just wants to stand up.

I weigh 300 when I'm all geared up, and have ran similar times (low 12's high 11s )with a bone stock carbed SV650. I'd be surprised of I couldn't ET in the mid 11's with my stock 07 Vee
