DvSkD4's 2012 675R for Track Only
New to the forum, already started searching/reading a bunch of threads trying to get up to speed on these bikes asap. For the last two years I've been getting into track days with my 2003 Honda CBR600RR, finally decided it's something I really enjoy and started looking for a new track weapon. Did some research and determined the 675R seemed about perfect for what I was looking for. Started looking for 2013+, but a local seller had a 2012 with ~2150 miles that fit the bill nicely. It's already VERY well setup for the track since the previous owner rode in advanced/expert groups, so my main focus is refreshing it for the coming season. I plan to address all of the regular items (oil, coolant, brake fluid, tires, battery, etc), plus a few items I saw were recommended on here like the UK Race Support billet oil cooler kit ... last thing I want is for that heat exchanger to fail on me!
Please let me know if there is anything else bike specific like that I should be addressing. I see the manual cam chain tensioner noted a few times, is that really necessary or does it just eliminate a rattle? Also, do most people with full exhausts & aftermarket filters use PCV + dyno or this TuneECU program? Haven't tried it before.
Here are some pictures, thanks!
