Smile Suspension Set-Up For Drag Racing

Hello. I'm hoping someone can help me out with a question. Can someone sugest a good suspension set-up for drag racing on a Suzuki GSX-R 600? Ive been drag racing cars for almost ten years, and now I'm going to start racing bikes. Thanks for any sugestions.

P.S. I'm 5'9", and 155lbs, don't know if that meens anything or not.

Good times man.....Good times.

Cool

A little bit...........

The rear suspension should be adjusted to squat just enough then be able to transfer the forces forward.

The front suspension should be set in a way that the "compression" and "rebound" function near "normal" yet allow the travel of the forks to slowly "top out" before the wheel can go airborne.

The bike should be lowered to be absolutely efficient with the swingarm "pivot" and rear "axle" on the same "plane" or "level".

See the image example!
