mercenary's - 2009 track build

With the winter approaching I guess I'll hop on the trend of making a build thread. In March I bought my first sportbike, a 2010, off the showroom floor rode it all summer hoping one day I'd be able to get out to a track. About two months ago I was able to pick up a cosmetic damaged 2009 for the wife to eventually ride some and to be a dedicated track bike for me. Next season I plan on entering the MCRA series at both Putnam and Heartland Park.

Over the winter I want to get plastics for it, tire warmers, a front stand, brake overhaul, and I guess I should look into a damper. I've kinda been looking at the kevlar covers to protect the tank too.

Any suggestions or opinions of what/where to buy are more than welcome as this will be my first track build and my limited track experience.

Re: mercenary's - 2009 track build

It was the only way to get her approval for another one. I ran the 2010 for the pridmore school in August and was terrified of laying it down. At least with the 09 if it gets wrecked I can still ride.

I finally got the forks set up at the last today and it made a world of difference. The bike was a ton more stable on entry.

....think of it from my point of view, i now get all the mods and cool shit on my bike while his stays stock and when i do get on the track he will have to get himself something else and have to rebuy evrything for his new bike. not to mention that he will do all the upkeep cuz he doesnt trust his life to my ignorance of bikes
i like to think im coming out ahead, now that i have a bike and NEED gear and pretty things for the 6, it cuts into his funds.
