My Sportbike Track Gear R6 Race Bike Build

Here is the R6 as it sits now, bone stock, and it is being built from the ground up into a WERA/AMA SS spec race bike.



The bike is being built at WitchKraft Motorsports by the same people who build the bikes for Eddie Kraft/WitchKraft Racing. I haven't actually seen the bike in person yet. I likely won't see it until the final touches are being put on. I will go up there when the clip-ons/levers/rearsets etc are being installed so the bike can be ergonomically setup for me. They will also set the sag at that point.

It will be completely torn down to the frame, swingarm removed, all bearings changed and re-greased, all wires will be removed and re-routed to shorten them as possible and to tuck them behind the frame make them less likely to be damaged in a crash.

Then it will be re-built, one piece at a time with the primary focuses being reduced weight and proper balance.

The Motor is being built my Jamie Hanshaw (same person who built Brian Van's STG Race bike and the bikes for the STG/WitchKraft Racing Team).

Suspension will be Ohlins.

The Kit ECU and Harness will be from Graves, as will the Works Full Titanium Exhaust.

The wheels powder coated Black.

The Rear Shock will be made "quick change". The rear brake caliper will be made captive (as will the wheels spacers) for easier and quicker tire changes.

The bodywork will be Armour Bodies, painted of course, in the STG Race Team Theme.

I will keep this thread updated with pictures and descriptions of the complete disassembly, re-assembly and parts used in the process.

Re: My Sportbike Track Gear R6 Race Bike Build
