Getting the bike ready for the season

I bought the R6 after three years on the street with the 599. After hitting the track for the first time last summer I realized how little sense the R6 makes on the street and how addicting the track is. That's why I decided to turn her into a track-only machine.
Paying taxes and my upcoming wedding is slowing down my mods, but I run with the fastest guys in Novice so far, so I don't even need them yet.
So far I'm just getting her ready for the crash, getting front axle sliders and engine case covers to complement the swingarm sliders and a finally wired the gear indicator, after the crankshaft position sensor blew up the first time i tried.

Next on the list is gearing and exhaust, because the race bodywork almost touches the cat.

Got them yesterday. Machining is very nice looking and accurate, the cam mechanism feels more solid than the Pazzo I have on the other bike and the lever has no forward play compared to them. Congratulations for a great product!

Re: Getting the bike ready for the season

very nice looking bike, great decals.

Only one question though....why do a lotta folks get "Standard shift" or "GP shift" decals??? Dont ya'll know what shift pattern you have on your bike? What is the need for the constant reminder?
