    Currently just getting the thing in a track ready condition. I picked it up off of a guy who bought a storage locker and the bike was inside. It has sat for a very long time. once it is running and stopping, then the real setup work begins for me. I have done some trackdays. It didnt take long to realize that a cheap dedicated bike wa the way to go. I'd rather pile this 2 grand bike up than lose my new superduke. The draw to me was cheap part replacement when things may go bad. Suspension and steering damper are a must before i go out on it, and the rest I will figure out as I go.

    as far as skill level I have been riding sportbikes for 20 years. I run novice and haven't asked to bump. I am comfortable there for now. I'll never go racing. I enjoy going to the track with the guys I ride with on the street.

    Did you do emulators too or just springs in the front and a replacement shock out back?
