First session was wet so I babied it, second session I blew a coolant hose and and third session i blew the fuel pump hose in half. Managed to put a temporary fix on it which ended up starving the pump and only giving enough fuel up to 11,000 RPM. Took it home the same night, made all new hoses and lowered the front triple tree to the 1/2" it was suppose to be at.
Hello, I want to convert my 1st gen R6 into a track bike as you. Could you detail how did you do the keyless ignition? I found a post here in the forum but it is for the 2nd gen and above.

Thank you!

Re: 1st Gen R6 Track Bike

What do you have for a clutch? Returned from my last track day yesterday with full intention of converting it to a slipper clutch. Also, my bike seems to “wheeze” in second gear & up between 2500 and about 7k rpm. I’m thinking the jetting is off but those familiar with R6 are telling me it’s the nature of the beast and I just need to row the gears. I had a 2001 ZX6R last season and it didn’t feel that weak in the low to mid range. Don’t want to bogart your thread, just interested in hearing your experience.
