Stock Brakes At The Track?

Guy from my local shop and I were talking about track days. I told him that I'd never been to one yet, but planned on hitting a couple this year. He told me I couldn't run stock brakes bc I'd cook them.

Any truth to this?

A friend of mine who runs trackdaz down here in california was on the track on a brand new R6 from the showroom and said it did quite well. Stock tires and everything.

Cool, thanks. Apparently he thought I was running the WERA A Superbike Expert class or something.

lol you don't need to do anything to get on the track. Just make sure your brakes pads are good and tires are good and you'll be ready to ride the track. And get some water wetter and safety wire the filter and oil pan drain bolt.

Thanks man. Just mix the water wetter with distilled water? Afterwards should I flush it and put antifreeze back in it for the street?

This. Your bike is more capable than you at the track straight off the showroom floor.
