I was hoping to take my bike out Wednesday to run at Union Grove, WI. I was wondering what equipment was neccessary for running. My main question is whether a textile jacket is acceptable? I've heard something about a tether as well. Let me know I wanna race my bike. I've done cars in the past.

A tethor is mandatory and full leathers under a 9.99.
You can get a sweet tethor here http://www.schnitzracing.com/
it boldt right on to your clutch lever clamp.
I would recommend getting a lowering link for the rear prferablloy an adjustable one so you can let it back up for the street and they sell a strap to strap your front.I'm going to to try to make it to DaGrove this year.I have ran snowmobiles there in the past.

I don't want to invest any money into a drag setup per say. I just want to run mine and see what it will do. I can't utilize all the power it has now. So I need full leathers and a tether. Guess I'm not going to be dragging this year. No way I can afford a full suit. How does a 120 trap time correlate to 9.99 ET? 120 is probably 12's, unless a bike differes from cars greatly. I figure with my 750 and poor/nonexistant skills for drag. I'd eke out an 11.xx ET(probably high 11's too).

Wow.. Ok, NHRA tracks usually require full leathers if you are MPHing over 120. They require a license if you are going quicker than 9.99. If you're a lightweight and can ride the bike you might break 120 on a 750. 9.99 is going to be a tall order for a first timer on a 750, even 120 mph I think assuming the bike is stock, it'll be close. Leather jacket, shoes that cover your ankles will work (high tops not recomended but should pass). Riding gloves (show up with leather best idea) Snell 2000 approved helmet or above, just DOT approval wont fly. Look inside the shell of the helmet is usually where they put the sticker for it. I've got one of the kill switches from Schnitz he was talking about. Not real cheap but reasonable for what you are getting. Cheap way is the old sheet metal screw screwed into your on/off switch on the right bar. Attach a lanyard to it then to yourself, usually acceptable.
