Well i'm back with an '09 R6 bitches :sing decided i didn't want to crash my R1 at the track and figured i'd be faster on the 600 too...i'm going to be making it a full time track beast...already have a couple goodies lined up for it..i'm mainly just focusing on suspension and braking; not so worried about the power (since us mere mortals can't extract what a stock 600 has to offer right?:rolleyes: ) I'm waiting on my racetech valving and springs (for the forks) in the mail right now

I'll be updating this biotch as more stuff comes in...also, open to ideas on what else i should get for her..i've been debating if rearsets are a must and i really want some track fairings (badly!)...what do u guys think? (rearsets and track fairings could buy me a lot of track days for next season :secret ) Let me know and enjoy the thread :D


here she is!









bought a couple bare essential mods - goodridge SS lines, Carbonne lorraine pads, and free preload adjusters



couldn't get the Fren Tubo's cuz i sprang for this beast!



































and here are both bikes :)

Rich bastard.




j/k. I'd say get the bodywork 1st and sell that street bodywork to fund the other goodies. Rearsets will be needed if you crash - The pegs are cheap to replace. Also get clipons cause the bars are also cheap to replace. Later, get the front forks revalved and resprung for your weight. Then use the rest of the money for tires and trackdays and get faster.

He's 6' 8" and I'm guessing in the 250 lbs. range geared up. Revalve/respring should be first...

I had a buddy that wanted me to ride his bike at the track, so I took it out for a session. I have to say he must have had one hell of a runner. The bike handles very well and the motor is very strong. I don't like the variable intake runners to much but his bike wasn't tuned either. If you can get a PCV and smooth out the tunning when the variable intake changes over you will be golden. Nice machines.

The bike 09 R6 with stock gearing appeared to pull better than my bike with almost all the bolt ons possible on it and geared down. My bike is putting about 108 hp. to the rear wheels, so the 09 must be tuned pretty damn good or he had one of THOSE BIKES. You know the strong ones that you always wish to get. Have fun with it. Lucky F####R

as big as you are, rearsets MIGHT help you a bit, but idk. if i could do it all over, id do what you've already done, and get a damper, sprockets/520, bazzaz/afm, clipons (and at least one extra bar), and of course, the race glass. but that's me.

Nice, sell the street fairings and that'll pay for your track fairings.
