2017 R6 Track Only

Losing the front at a track day recently, necessitated a new rear subframe and body work. So as my R6 is track only anyways, I went ahead and used the low side as an opportunity to get track fairings and a light weight subframe.

I bought the fairings from a company in Italy called MotoX Pricambi

). They are a great company to work with, very impressed with their customer service, given I am in the USA. I could have customized the paint scheme as much as I want too. They are very accommodating.

The rear subframe is DB Holders. I chose to have MotoXP paint the body work and I am glad they did. The paint job is very high quality, with metallic flakes, and clear coat over the stickers. The bodywork comes pre-marked where you are to drill, but they leave the drilling and riveting the dzus fasteners to the end user. Anyways, I just wanted to share some pictures. I just got the bodywork mounted today, but it was raining out. So the pictures i have are of the bike in the garage. I will take some upclose pictures in the sunlight as soon as I can.

Bike has been down for about 3 weeks, so this weekend or next is going to be a track day! @

I love my R6, but...there's no buts...

Trail braking too deep into a corner. Got impatient.

Re: 2017 R6 Track Only

I literally have years worth of brake dust, exhaust carbon, oil and dirt caked on my wheels. It has never been that important to me, to clean them, but it just occurred to me that it's going to be a hellova lot easier if I put the rear on the bike stand and let it spin in first gear. (at least for the rims anyway) Relaively speaking, should be a short run back to gloss black.

Seeing your wheels made me think about that LoL...
