Hi all, I wanted to make a thread for my bike, where hopefully people can give suggestions and feedback as I slowly improve it for the track. I've had it for about 7 months now and it's just an incredible bike, I love it. It's my second bike but I only started riding last September; I know people will come at me with pitchforks for pretty much starting on a litre bike, but it was a too good of an opportunity to pass up and I've always wanted this bike. Started out as a street bike but took it to the track this April and I've done 5 days on track since then; it's super addictive. It was pretty much stock at first but I've changed a few necessary things since then. How it started: All it had was a LeoVince titanium can. Then took it to the track for the first time and removed all the unnecessary things like rear plate, passenger footpegs, mirrors and turn signals. I also put some slicks on it (here come the pitch forks) as a friend gave them to me for free, a few R&G protectors, and most importantly steel braided front brake lines. Swapped the battery for a Lithium unit which weighs 3kg less! Its a little 1.6Ah unit with just 160CCA but has never failed me. not sure why these pics dont work: First track day on it in April: I then realised the front M/C is shit and I think it had something wrong with it. At full brake the lever would touch my fingers at full out position. So I swapped it for a Brembo PR 18/19 I had, which immediately solved my problems. Its such a huge difference over the original. Feels amazing! Second and third day, also in April, at Franciacorta: A very experienced friend of mine help me setup and soften the bike. Set the correct preload for my weight and then correct damping. His motto is; "as soft as it can be, as hard as it needs to be". I then fixed the bodywork up a bit as it's practically falling off. Did Flapper Delete mod. You can see the relatively bad condition the bodywork is in. The entire bike is held together with tape. The 4th day on track at Anneau du Rhin in May: Starting to get really comfortable with the bike, its very smooth and easy to ride. Never any hesitation from the grip. Started out with a 200/60 rear but its just way too big for this bike. The 180/60 feels a lot better. Wonder what peoples opinion is on this? Then finally, my 5th and 6th day at Bresse in France this month (June): Switch to TRW carbon pads. Once warn they seriously bike; they also give a slightly firmer feel which I prefer. Would recommend, and I will buy again. It's a seriously good bike with feels easy and forgiving to ride, and despite all the complaints I've heard I really like the suspension as stock and do think it performs very well for the average rider. I've played about with a few Ohlins sets for other bikes at work and they often feel terrible. The OE CBR forks have felt better than any Ohlins set I've come across so far. I can't really say much about the rear shock as it feels fine for me, but maybe a good rider could feel the difference. Does changing the rear shock really make such a difference? Mods so far: Chassis: – R&G front axle protector – R&G swing-arm bobbins Braking System: – Brembo PR 18/19 front master cylinder – TRW CRQ Hyper-Carbon front brake pads – Motacc SS braided front brake lines Intake – Flapper valve mod Exhaust: – LeoVince SBK Titanium silencer Electronics: – Shido LTX4L-BS Let me know your thoughts, criticisms etc.. all is welcome!
