675R Racebike for 2018

Hey guys. Ive decided to sell my 2013 GSXR 750 track bike to build a 2013+ 675R Racebike. Purpose of the thread is what do i need to know. Ive got a heavily modified 675r Eslick bike as it is but would love to get input from guys who race these bikes. Anything you seen or dealt with with setup/upgrades/repairs. Stuff you "wish you knew back then that you know now." Gonna spend the offseason looking for a bike and building it this winter for the upcoming WERA season. Any input is appreciated.

If you haven't already, get an updated shift pivot plate and Attack triples. Make sure you service the shock every 8 hours (that's about 3 race weekends for me) and the forks twice per season. That's pretty much all it needs to run with the pack in club racing. You can go apeshit with the fun but unnecessary stuff like I did, but get your bike set up where it has to be first.

Yea i did the shift pivot plate on my Eslick bike. Thats a good tip on the suspension. Ill be getting set from my suspension guy day one after having the forks and shocks rebuilt. What does the attack triple help with? Trail? Was also looking at the attack suspension linkage for the underside

Yes, the Attack triples increase trail and help prevent sudden, unexpected loss of front grip.

I also have an Attack shock linkage and it noticeably improved rear feel, but I wouldn't say it's necessary like the triples are. If your budget allows it though, it's a great upgrade.

Well i like the sound of not losing front end grip quite a bit. I will check the wera rules and make sure aftermarket triples are allowed. For suspension ill break the bank because IMO its the most important part of a bike in general, let alone a race bike. Ive been running stock suspension thats set for my weight on my GSXR track bike for 2 years and ive pretty much done what i could with it. Ready for some good stuff.
