Lightbulb Prepping a KARIZMA for Drag racing

Buddies I have a TOTALLY STOCK EURO 3 ZMA done 2600 KMS that is 1 and a half-year-old. Iím planning to use it in the forthcoming SPEED RUN. So please help me out with the mods. Please let me know what are the mods that need to be carried out to make it a DRAG SPEC MACHINE. Please note that I donít mind if the bike wont be PRACTICAL for regular street use and im NOT ON A LIMITED BUDGET

u will have to decide if u wnat to enter in the stock or modified class.
Modified class means, u will need a fully blown mod job with lightened chassis and all, but the bore will have to be stock.
In the stock class, u can strip the bike, but still keep stock engine and drive-train.

There is a stock class and modified class for bikes in the speedrun. This is true for two strokes and four strokes. As fieroid said you need to keep the bore stock for the stock class and only lighten the bike. In modified class you can go the whole way. For ex, ported and flowed head which can be matched by a properly designed exhaust, camshaft to alter the valve timings etc. Changes in gearing, suspension, altering the ride height. There is no dearth to mods when it comes to drags.

Assuming that this is the first time you are participating in the drag, i would suggest that you take the stock route first to get a first hand experience whats it like. Then next speed run onwards you can think of modifying the engine.

Yeah, there's a stock class for bikes? Didn't know that...I thought you could bore anything out as long as you stayed in the limit for your cubic-capacity class.

Find stuff for the CR230 or CRF230. That's the Honda bike the 'Zma is ripped off from. That should help for starters.

in a stock class, the bike can only lightened. no jetting, sproketting, nothing...even the tyres are to be stock. u can strip the fairing, panles, chain covers, saree guard etc to make it light. During scrutiny, the bike is well inspected to ensure no mods are carried out.

In modified class, except over-boring anything else can be done. u can go all-out on mods. But CC has to be within the limit.

yes its classified as 2-strks and 4-strks. but the stock clas and modified class rules are pretty much the same. however the CC is kept lower for the 2-strk class.
