Re: Creation of a race bike Part II

Rear sets are on.

Fired up nice with the Werks exhaust. It's raucous, loud and spits flame. Seems to be running a little rich, so may have to invest in a Power Commander at some point.

Took her for a quick run and accidentally spun up the rear in first gear. Tyres were cold, but still gave me a giggle.

Tomorrow I'll modify the lower fairing & it's all done

I might be interested in the tyre tie down, how much do you want for that?

Amazing day at Broadford yesterday. Sun shone all day, bike performed flawlessly. Pipe sounded great & suspension worked perfectly.

Steering dampener could do with improvement,as could the rider!

Stock damper is shit. Get it rebuilt with new needle.

Yeah it sure gave me a couple of tank slappers over the crest on the back straight, it's on the must do list.

After a couple of years away from the track and a new bike it took me ages to get into the swing again. Body position is all wrong, so I've got something to work on next time :D. Have to say the bike is awesome and the suspension set up near on perfect, just need to tune the rider. Having said that I had an absolute ball and can't wait to take the bike back to the track.

I like what you've done with with it. It looks great and I'm sure it'll ride beautifully.

More than anything I love the security guards, they look 110% committed to their duties!! :)
