Couple tips from a half brain with no skill...... if you're changing the sprockets drop 1 tooth in the front and put your stock sprocket on back, so 17/46. It's a great combo for good acceleration. I personally think a full tank of gas helps prevent wheelies, so I'd leave it filled up. Buy a front end strap, which you can put on and tighten only when you are at the strip. They are cheap and effective, no need to lower the bike. Loosen it and remove it and drive home same day back at stock ride height. I did that last year with a stock height ZX14 and was cutting 1.6 sixty foot times. Dropping 3 tenths off your sixty time should bring you down to a 9.7 which would be halfway respectable, even for a dropkick bogan slurry like you.
