I don't get why you would start with a Buell for a drag bike?

Adding on 6" to the swingarm will ruin the handling of the bike. A stock Hayabusa will do that time.

The bike is built to go in a straight line - he has a CR for the straight.

And as to why a Buell, well why not ? Perhaps Joe wanted something different ...

The answer to that is very similar to why you chose to ride a Buell when other bikes are 'better'.
