Suspension question

Getting ready to take my hawk to the dragstrip and I am wonderng what I can do to help keep the front end on the ground. Will fork straps do the trick and if so where is a good place to pick a set up at? My bike has a stage 1 jet kit and D&D pipes so should run pretty decent as long as I can stay straight.

Strap the front and add more compression damping to the rear...oh, that's right, it's not adjustable for compression damping. Well, crank the preload to max then...
