lil_j's track build!

UPDATE! SEE POST #14 FOR MORE DETAILS!!


I am so happy to be able to start this thread! A little background on me and my bike, I bought it in February of this year with 5300 miles on it. I did my first track day July 11th of this year and followed it with two more and I am hooked!

I recently started a new job that pays wayyy better then my old one, which is why I can start doing this build.

My plan is too get the bike fully race/track ready by early May in time that I can take the learning curves course at Road America to get my race license for the year.


PARTS LIST (or at least what I can remember at this point)

-power commander with quick shift
-woodcraft engine covers
-woodcraft rearsets
-woodcraft chain guard
-520 conversion
-pipercross air filter
-factory pro +4 ignition advancer
-AGG racing block off plates (Already installed!)
-armour bodies superbike fairings
-shorai battery
-SS front and rear brakelines
-Penske rear shock
-ohlins steering dampner
-race tech gold valve kit for the forks


and then the few miscellaneous stuff like..
-tire warmers
-spare set of rims
-tank grip
-levers
-lap timer


I dont have much bought yet besides the block off plates and ignition advancer but next up is the armour bodies!! now onto the pictures!


When I bought it

AGG!


BTW if anybody can think of anything else I'll need to make my bike better for the track please share!

i bought the superbike kit so it has the tail with the seat and I noticed after trying a few times it is going to be a pain to get it on the bike. does anyone who has this kit have any pointers on how to get it on?

Re: lil_j's track build!



Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

With patience. It'll go on, just don't force it.

What sort of foam are you going to use for padding?

Re: lil_j's track build!

AWESOME! I loves me a track build... I've got quite a list on my track build thread... Something you may want to take a look at to get some ideas. I know it's diff year/bikes but the list I've got built me a pretty solid track machine!

Check out the build thread! In for pics and updates on your progress as well!


RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

Re: lil_j's track build!

The reality is, these bikes don't really NEED any parts to go fast on a track other than tires, brake lines and a capable rider. The rest is all gravy.
