what as his suspension/frame setup? I'm assuming it was done up as a dragsterStop being a sissy. There was a guy that i used to do the IMS show with in NY who had a KZ900 with an 1100cc overbore, turbo, and a single stage nitrous setup. It was an intense bike but it hasn't killed him yet.
Also...if you are going to be a bear, be a grizzly.
