Stretched?

Anyone here have their CBR stretched? I'm wondering at what point (in inches) do you start to notice a differience in lean in?

Don't expect too many here to have stretched CBRs. Most of us road race and have little interest in stretching...

Wouldn't that be the exact opposite of what you would want on the track? Stretch is for drag strips, not tracks!

Isn't a drag strip also a track?

If your not taking it to the track its not a horrible difference, my 6-7 inch stretch handles just fine, but I haven't really had a chance to ride it much. Just bought it stretched, if I don't like it I'll change it back.
