so i was washing my R6 and i notice oil on my left fork, leaking to my brakes..
My bike is a 2004, with 8,230 miles(very hard miles). Note i don't do mile wheelies or stoppies....im just an average asshole like you guys..:fact
I don't ride this bike on the streets anymore, just track days(damn i knew my suspension felt too bouncy).
i'm planning on making this my race bike anyways sooooo any recommendations on parts would be greatly appreciated.

The Race Tech Stuff is good stuff. Revalving your suspension is a really good way to improve it and is the least expensive way of upgrading your suspension and you can get some really good results.

If you have a larger budget and want more than some revalving you can get fork cartridges and a new rear shock.

I personally have my entire suspension revalved with race Tech. I had it done over christmas liked the results for street riding but had it set for the Track as thats where I do most of my riding these day.

I was only able to put 800 street miles on it though. I was supposed to be doing trackdays but had to have back surgery so I had to cancel my trackdays. So I won't be able to tell you the results from the track till next year but I can definitely tell the bike is more settled over bumps and more compliant than it was before and I had the stock suspension setup for me.

Race Tech is good, but Lindemann Engineering is in your area (Campbell)... I'd give them a call first. They rock!

Depends on how much you want to spend... try Lindemann first. If you have a bigger budget, Ohlins R&T with Supebike internals are awesome, but a little spendy.
how spendy are they.....i'm willing to spend a little over 2k for the right stuff.

Dan, If you go to Lindemann Engineering to do it then you can crash at my pad bro. It's like 30 mins max from my house. I know the local shop here can redo the fork seals here for about $150 bucks.







Ya bitch

did i ever tell you how much i love you.......maxx
My bad, bro... I forgot that you had a '04, which has a conventional fork. I don't think that you can go with aftermarket forks in most AFM stock classes. You might be able to get away with '05 triple clamp and '05 forks (USD) that would accept the Ohlins cartridge kit, but I would check with the rules first. Otherwise, I think your only option is a spring and valve setup. Lindemann would probably be your best bet for this. LMK if I can help in any way.
