easbaysav's 09 Track Build

I haven't been around these neck of the woods for that long, but the reason I bought my 09 R6 was for track use and eventually turn her to track only. Honestly didn't care much for the paint scheme but I got a good deal on the bike and knew race glass was due to come. The black n orange grew on me quick and didn't think nothing of it until my brother (die hard SF Giants fan) complimented the colors. Bike had a dark smoke DB, flush mounts, fender eliminator, frame sliders, bar end sliders, swingarm spools, and a GYTR slip on when I got it.

After this, I had no choice but to speed up the process of my track build: Your Best Track Picture.

No pics from when I brought the bike home, but these are the first pics taken:

First things I did was remove the passenger pegs, did reverse shift, and unf*#$ed some wiring done to the rear turn signals.





Before picking up the bike, I sourced a steering damper and picked it up the next day. Got a HyperPro steering damper, along with some bits added from my R1 (preload adjusters, Harris gas cap, Renthal clip-ons not yet installed ATM).



Had a trackday scheduled for Laguna and didn't think I was going to make it but with some turn of events, the opportunity came back. Took the wheels and had them swapped for a new set of Q2s and had some angled valve stems installed at the same time. Already removed the GYTR and sold it to another member so I sourced a stock slip-on for the dB limits at Laguna. Also removed the peg feelers.

The donor from some of the bits above:




***I like the HyperPro steering damper cause it serves it purpose, but it's a real PITA if you have to lift the tank. Don't know how many times that thing came off since I've had the bike. Wish I could opt for the Graves kit and Ohlins damper but not for the $$$, I'll stick with having to remove and re-install.***

Re: easbaysav's 09 Track Build

Before the Laguna day, I had some some bits ordered and had them installed prior to my Sonoma trackday. Too bad some of them took some damage. These bits were: Woodcraft GP shift rearsets, GB Racing case covers, Puig clear DB, TechSpec C3 tank pads, Gregg's Customs mirror block offs, and a Brembo 19RCS (bought the M/C from an R1 Forum member). Was able to install the Renthal clip-ons, a Pazzo clutch lever (also from my R1), some Renthal Kevlar grips, and some Galfer SS brake lines (bought from an R6 Forum member) prior to the trackday as well.

Edit: Had my ECU reflashed by Ant @ Bauce Racing and also threw some Tygon clear hoses in there and did a rear reservoir delete when the brake lines were installed.

Here's how she looked after that trackday:

All torn down and replaced the bent clip-on bar (LH side) and the grips also. Now awaiting some race glass and aftermarket upper fairing stay:

Re: easbaysav's 09 Track Build

Was deciding on Optimals or Armour Bodies. Had Armour Bodies in mind, but after hearing about the Optimals, I was curious. Found out Anthony aka Chiefsmokedawg aka Bauce Racing has the plug on both so I got in contact with him. While trying to source an aftermarket upper fairing stay, Ant recommended one and also had it in stock. So now the Armour Bodies, Dzus fasteners, MotoHolders upper stay, and some Woodcraft no-cuts were on the way. Thanks Ant!!





There's also some ETI tank sliders in the background somewhere that I bought from them directly.

Re: easbaysav's 09 Track Build

On with the Armour Bodies install. My first time doing race glass and did it myself.

Started with the tail since I figured it would be the easiest and get familiar with the process:





There's a Bauce ECU reflash and a MotyDesign 8cell QD in there.



then the upper:





and the lower:





Sticking with the OEM front fender for now and currently waiting on a ZG Corsa windscreen. The bodywork is gonna get rattle canned and more than likely be all black or might throw some orange in there also. Depends on how lazy I feeling and it will be my first time spray painting bodywork.

Headers were removed in preparation for an MJS full system.

Some pics of the bits:



















Replaced the RH Woodcraft main bracket cause it got bent with the stock slip on:









***The pics from the MotoHolders to here were from my iPhone so sorry if they suck.***
