I had a few friends who did similar things what I did to my shogun in their RX 135.But after drag racing a few time Shogun always left them far behind.
You are right my next bike is going to be a Yamaha R1.
I have a few pictures of my friends R1, Ninja CBR 1000 and Ducati. Have a look.

But a lot depends on the the vehicles and their state of tune and also at times upon the rider.
Some of my friends were so ham-fisted, they couldn't outdrag others with a seemingly better bike.
I have seen a splendor outdo a shogun in moderate Mumbai traffic, that to years back- the shogun rider was kinda weird, not revving cleanly and using poor judgement to eke out a path ahead and ending up accelerating wildly but braking too often- getting pwned big time.
Coz, the day my friend finally got a new 600F4 on my insistence instead of the used litre class machines as it was the first big bike he was getting(never ridden anything bigger than the commuters here), he saw a guy crash his 1000RR just after taking delivery, even before he could hit the main road- born again biker. :(
And i hope you don't compromise on any safety equipment.
That Honda F4 guy is yet to buy a good pair of riding boots- he bought stuff part by part- starting off with the Jacket+armor and helmet first.
Out there, it's always a good idea to have or join a riding group of sober, friendly riders- the track sessions are too much fun he said.
Dear Mods- I am sorry for flouting the smiley rule- i thought i was restricting myself while posting on tbhp- i am kinda notorious for my smilies elsewhere.
Even in the above, i would have gone like a smiley per line as per my expression(i actually try to show what i may look like while saying something) but i couldn't even use one smiley per quote as i can use only 2.
I could have used atleast 2 smileys just for this last para- an 'embarrassed face' for sentence 1 as i felt sorry for flouting rules, and a 'sad face' for the above sentence.
But i want to say i am sincerely sorry for breaking the rules as i hate breaking rules in any walk of life. (happy face smiley)

Re: All about Shogun Modification
I need to convert a Shogun's suspension to monoshock. Anyone ever done it before? Does anyone have an idea which trailing arm will fit onto Shogun's chassis directly. And does anyone know of a softer suspension than Unicorn's or FZ's?
