World record atempt

I was wondering if i could get some help from you guys
At colledge our class is curently trying to beat the indoor land speed record on a CBR900R 1993. We have to do up the bike to go as fast as possible in 160ft inside a building, in this 160ft we will have to accelarete reach as high speed as possible and then come to a complete stop(hopefuly not making any holes through the brick work).
The problems are that we do not have any money to spend on this unless we scrape a little bit together or borrow some parts, also that all modifications to the bike can be removed after and for the bike to be returned to its standard fourm.
Does any body have any ideas what we could do to the bike to make it complete this challenge?
Any ideas or sudgestions would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks Student Bikers Speed Attempt L2

So can the bike be modded or not ?

Without money you need a mechanic to tune it up - port polishing, etc, ( maybe even de-coking ), but they must know what they're doing or the bike could perform less well than it currently does.

MOST important - check that the bike is SAFE, brakes, etc

Good luck, sounds like a proper BUZZ - post a video
