Thanks Steve,
I'm not really that serious about drag racing although may give it another go at some point when I've got the Velo stacks Cr gearing just to see the difference they make. That'll be as far as I go.
Thanks anyway. Paul.

Did look at the airshifter before but wiring it into the ECM would be the problem & money, still trying to raise the cash for the velo stacks at 120 euros. They'll help with bringing the power band to where I want it without screwing up what I have now which is a bike that runs great.

Still got the cat to take out of the Remus as well which means opening up the silencer and while I'm there fitting another outlet on the left side. That should free the f****r up a bit more. The remus is a great road going exhaust but still strangles the engine a bit more than I would like.

Don't forget you'll need a swingarm to go with CR gearing.

Can only be length or belt hole I guess. Finding details isn't easy that is for sure.
If you're going to the NMM I'll have a look & measure of yours if you don't mind Steve?

I'd consider the option of lowering your gearing for 1/4 mile drags very carefully. I've only sprinted my Duc 1198 at Ramsey which is 1/8 mile and used 2nd gear as it was quicker than starting in 1st and changing gear. Over a1/4 mile you may be changing gear more often, and loose time doing so. I'm no expert in this, but when I raced pre '65 stuff, everyone used 2nd gear to start and kept the engine in the max torque area by slipping the clutch. The 1125 has a very flat torque 'curve' so you may not gain much and risk looping the bike. Gus is the man to give advice about suitable gearing.
