Hey Banditos, here's some new photos of my GS based Pro-Modified Suzuki that I'm finally ready to start testing very soon. It is turning out pretty nice, and it had better be since I've been working on it for two years! I'll keep you updated from time to time as I proceed down the track.

All the paint work was done by Irby Designs in Watsonville, CA. Danny Irby really did a great job matching the Kendall Funny Car's paint scheme. He paints motorcycles full time. He can be reached at (831) 761-1949.
Attention to every little detail really makes the difference. Dale's known to be pretty much a fanatic in this area.
The above photo shows the 1 3/4 " to 1 7/8" VHR Pro Stock pipe, Percy Exhaust Temp Probes, Ward Performance top end oiling kit, TRAC inverted drag forks.
Percy High Performance Exhaust Temp analyzers keep each cylinder's maximum temperature in memory recall. This allows Dale to pull up the readings after each pass for tuning decisions between rounds.
Dale recently had his new Holeshot/ Kendall Pro-mod Suzuki on display at All American Honda Kawasaki Suzuki in Santa Cruz, CA. Many customers at the dealership enjoyed looking over this machine and the sport bike guys were suprised to find out that it's not so simple going in a straight line. After bugging him most of the day, Dale fired up the motor and winged it a few times. All left with ears ringing. Testing will soon begin.
This thing should get my attention...
