Trackday mods

I have a 2013 R6. Next year I'd like to do my first Trackday and was wondering if there are any mods you'd recommend doing over the winter to get ready for it? Right now other than some cosmetic mods, I have case savers, axle sliders and Tech Spec pads on the bike. I plan on mounting a set of Q3's over the winter and getting my suspension set up for my weight in the spring, after I drop a few more lbs. Otherwise the bike is stock. I still plan on riding the bike on the street, but can definitely see some track time in my future. Any suggestions on any additional mods, or does it look like I'd be good to go for now?

Re: Trackday mods

Safety wire the oil filter and drain plug. Other than that you only need seat time. Good luck, track is very addictive. Worst than heroin lol

Re: Trackday mods

Steel braided lines, good set of pads, and good brake fluid on the front

Re: Trackday mods

case savers = good idea
axle sliders = worthless

Suspension & tires = good idea

only thing Id suggest is getting rid of the stock clip ons & get some that are adjustable. Less than $150 and makes a HUGE difference in feel.

Refrain from doing the whole "soooperbike mods" thing that many feel they need. Honestly I would
spend money on the BEST gear you can afford plus an ass ton of seat time. I would let the course of your riding dictate what you need from there.

Re: Trackday mods

case covers, SS brake lines, brake pads

Once you get faster, and decide to do double street/track duty, then get spare wheels with track/race tires

Other than that, just seat time. Stock bike will do a lot more than most of us, although, for feel, suspension mods do really help with confidence (once you get to fast group pace)

Re: Trackday mods

Nothing just ride it! If you have stock pads you may consider replacement I use Vesrah. I like the XX compound
