I didn't do to bad this year considering I had my first track day in early June, and got my first street bike (ever!) in May, and got up to Advanced pace!
So what was done to the motor?

I just realized I accidentally said "there are racing components in the engine". I must have just typed while not thinking about what I was typing haha, it was this morning (only got 5 hrs of sleep ha).

What I meant to say was that there wasn't really any work done to the engine. And what I mean by that is there was only the race gasket kit installed. Not sure on the mm.

The engine is set up for reliability until I actually need engine work done. Which, I'm not sure I'll ever fully need it because I'm 120 lbs. wet with gear on so I already have an advantage .

I'm only racing WERA/CCS/etc. next year so we thought we'd just have the engine stock for longevity purposes.

I haven't weighed 120 lbs since 6th or 7th grade. And I'm not exactly a big guy, but I'm about 195 geared up. Would be useful to drop 70 lbs and be at your riding weight for the track though.

I'm 20 haha. I kinda exaggerated, I really weigh around 127 lbs. (just checked lol). But I'm no where near big, I'm only 5'9 too. With gear I bet I'm 135 lbs.
