Lots of $$$ if you want to go that fast buy a Destroyer i'm at 11.35 with no drag strip experience (on 2 wheels) maybe 11.0 with a good rider. 1250cc with SE II cams and a race pipe . i'm adding spray over the winter, should put my experience level in the 10.9 - 11.0 range

Aside from the humorous suggestions, you need a lighter frame like the one from Performance Metal Fab Racing and and add a race turbo setup. I believe you'd have a sportsman style, low maintenance, rideable ( but not streetable) scooter. Until there are cases that will allow 120-140 " a stock frame / motor combo is going to have to be a 100% dedicated strip effort machine.

http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=170685

BTW, has any turbo V-Rod made the 8 second mark??? I know it's been done on NOS, but haven't seen it posted with a turbo yet, just wondering

that bike makes almost 200rwhp stock and with a 40 shot you can do the math...also that bike is a lot lighter....20lbs weight reduction means a .1 improvement in et.... with a 250lbs rider and a v-rod weighing around 575lbs it would take about 220hp or more to run in the 8`s without a wheelie bar
