I have two more major milstones, and then my vision will be complete.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

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

Re: Low Sided @ Laguna Seca - Track Bike Build

looks real nice. Just a couple of pointers....remove the peg feelers from your rearsets (if track only) and that frame slider sticks too far out. I recommend Woodcraft set instead of what you currently have. Less likely to catch on something and make the bike flip

Stainless steel brake lines or it isn't complete.

As for Doc-Ram saying remove the frame sliders and peg feelers, if you are riding all the way for them to touch you are going too far. I assume that's only for super softs off the warmers.

The paint job is amazing.

It's not your thread. I will always be in your mind and you can't do anything about it.

Too far for what? Tire grip is the limit of lean and tires are good enough now that you can lean far enough that hard parts drag. Now hard parts are your limit of lean and you're losing time on the track and have to adjust your hard parts. I'm willing to wager that Doc has more time on the track than a lot here.

I can't speak for Straight Success but I suspect that he's rebuilding his bike on a budget and is re-using stock parts until funds allow for the upgrades (brake lines, rearsets, sprockets/chain, etc.).

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

Yes, I am. I'm not super wealthy - not yet anyway. I have been on a budget for my rebuild. No one plans on crashing. This rebuild cut into some nice things I had planned which may be held off for a little while.

I have roughly another $XXXX in upgrades I would like in the long term as well as a new motorcycle for the street. My rebuild has cut into both of those things.

It's all in the sport though.

All you gotta do is not lean as far and if you are uncomfortable do not give too much throttle on apex. You can save that for in say short stopping apex and end side of the track you are accelerating to (in any gear that is above 1 or you may high-side on an R6 like I did).

Just at least run through the power band when you are on track day, not 75% rpm band and 75% throttle. 100% throttle, 100% RPM band. Just let off sooner by taking corners easy. It's what I do. When I'm coming to a highway exit I'm letting off and braking way way way sooner than I should be but I'm pretty much doing like 150+ going to it quick as possible. : )

This is how I would ride on track. I mean it would be As intense of course but at least you know what the limits could look like in an emergency. It doesn't mean you should be at it all the time. And this goes for anyone reading the post. It's not directed for anyone specifically. It's more of a broadcast.
