Hi there, I think TRACK is a safer place than anywhere else in this world. Trust it and trust your bike and you will have a blast

Hi Issey,

Not sure of what the rules are in the US, I'm currently building a 675 for Superstock and we're not even allowed to change the levers in WA. I'd thoroughly check you local regs prior to making any investments.

You can get some 09+ wheels they are a bit lighter than the 06-08 wheels. And welcome to the family. Goodluck with your racing.

Welcome, glad to see you on the track, we have several girl racers here in colorado and there are more every year so good on you for jumping into the mix...

As far as the bike, as good as your's look it may be more cost effective to look at just buying someones already built bike as they generally go for pennies on the dollar, as case in point over the past 3 years i spend somewhere in the neighborhood of 18K on mine and can't even get an offer on it, I build bike for the enjoyment of the build and the ride, but if your not doing any of your own work then it cost even more, there are several good race bike on the board. for example. [ame="http://www.triumph675.net/forum/showthread.php?t=65291"]2007 Daytona 675 race - Triumph675.Net Forums[/ame]

But i know if you want to keep you own bike, then the first things are shock(ohlins or elka 3-ways), forks 30mm ohlins(best option), and a good steering damper, the stock one sucks... then work on getting the bike to fit to you by getting adjustable rearsets and clipons.
Good luck racing... be safe...

Good point! I agree with you. I currently race my bike stock except the pipe, rearsets, and sprockets. I am doing fine and won a couple trophie from races. Finished my first year of racing experience in 1 piece. My bike still look the same I am really happy. I will def do some mod next season. I need to be more competitive!-- Cheers to you

Thanks sir, They do and I currently have the CNC set on my bike for about 2 years now. They work just fine :)
