Dude, all they are is lowering straps.
Everyone around here that drag races has one
on their bike.
No big deal.

And no need to get all bent out of shape about
something you know nothing about.

And not a bad price either.
They are $20 and up around here.

They are a pretty common means of lowering your front end and or just keeping it down for your launch. The straps are rated at over 2000lbs in most cases if your pulling hard enough to equal that then the front ends going over your head anyway. You can even find them on some of the bikes that aftermarket tuners get and fix up for local dealers. Theres a dealer here local called Vista Kawasaki that keeps one or two Brock prepped bikes on the floor and they use them. I'm sure if anybody would know there dangerous it would be Brocks after all the high power drag bikes they've shot down the strip.

They're extremely common in drag racing. Plus, he even gives a warning that they might not be safe on the street.

it is a bit bodge it and scarper though either spend the dolla on new forks or drop em through the tripple clamps much safer IMHO. it only takes a piece of debris to tear the edge just slightly and you are foooooked

even with a lowered front end you still need the strap at the drag strip. Without the strap, on a hard launch the front end will start coming up. Before the wheel even leaves the ground the front suspension starts unloading and getting lite. the strap prevents the front suspension from unloading and effectively puts the complete weight of the front end on the front of the bike.

"Great idea, buy your kid a ninja for his last birthday."
