cut the extra length out, the way you say doesnt it affect your steering. Id feel more safe just with it on the forks, cut any extra length off and if needed secure the ends so they dont fly around. It might not be a 1 man job but I could always do it while its on the trailer and the forks are compressed already. How does it feel strapped, you leave a few inches so it could compress if needed ( dip in track)

I need 2-3 tenths, I already have 5 gals of VP ultra 4 oxygenated fuel--87 octane, and Might take the stock air cleaner out since the baffles are out of the pipes for a little better flow. Any ideas to get me into the 9's

i just drive the bike with one hand on the brake the other on the strap and compress the forks with the brakes, then tie off the excess with the string pictured on my triple tree
i used to have to ride to the track. it doable but it handles like crap.

piece of advice: (that i was given by someone who is a lot better than me, some time ago) don't worry so much about extreme power mods. at first just learn to slip the clutch and make good reaction and 60' times. he told me just lower the bike, put a little gearing on it., and throw a pipe on if you want.

the more seat time the better.
wear your gear

Ouch on the routing of the straps! I see a brake line PINCH issue on that gixer. Besides the twisting of the straps. In the beginning, ours looked like that. The way we have it now is better and neater for us.

Busa SE, sorry about the pic(s). I will have to retake them.

Our install allows the straps to run adjacent and parallel to the fork legs from the caliper mount up. All brake lines and wiring are out of the way from pinch or strap tightening issues.
i know i got the parts to change the routing to over the frame ( damn radial calipers)
