Hello All! A bit of update on the track bike project. So I followed the the Snip --> Start, Snip ----> start process over and over again with the wiring harness and everything but then BAMM didn't start so I spent 2 hours back tracking where i went wrong and finally figured it out and after that i was like "ok we are done with this..." I was able to zip tie the rest of the harness under the ram air assembly which solved my problem of having to deal with it every time I took off my upper fairing.

Below you will see the work I did before my first track days on 5/31 and 6/1. I couldn't be more excited to get out there......Spoiler alert.....The day went HORRIBLE! The front brakes were sticky and cause a horrible shutter when I was braking and the battery i installed from my previous track bike was obviously on its last leg and didn't start In the morning so I had to charge it after every sessions. On top of that I did a shit job of bleeding the coolant (water) system and had overheating problems in addition to the brake and battery problems.

I was pretty much ready to quit the sport and roll my bike into the pacific, but I had some Green Label whiskey, regrouped and bought new seals for the R6 calipers, a new Yuasa Battery and Galfer Rotors. Once those arrive I'll drop them in and hopefully have a better day.

Thanks for looking!

******* massive wiring harness that I attempted to cut down


Superbike Tail


The extra wiring i took off the wood craft ignition eliminator


Why Triumph....why


Zip Tied to the ram air. Zip Ties are always the solution!



Next was a custom AIM Solo 2 mount.

Mocking it up -

Test Fit



Unfortunately once I got it put together it rattled a bunch so I put some supports together to give it some strength. Thanks JB Weld!

Update Time!

I rebuild the R6 brakes with brand new seals and got new to me Galfer Rotors. New Yuasa battery and refilled the cooling system and bleed the absolute piss out of it. Did a track day on the 8th and it went 2000 times better. No issues with braking or overheating and with the bike running well I was able to drop 6-8 seconds off my lap times. I am doing Yamaha Champions Race School on the 16th and then I will be putting some slicks on. Tire warmers and generator are already in the garage.

No pictures of the repairs but someone took one sessions worth

6 - 8 seconds? How big is this track? That's a huge difference.

The sooner you introduce motorcycles into your children's lives, the less likely they'll have money for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers.

Super Fast 600s go 1:43
Novices 1:55
Advanced group threshold is 2:00

I went from 2:08s to 2:02s with a couple 2:00

That’s normal for a beginner to make extreme jumps at any track either session to session or day to day. First time I was at this track I turned 2:20. Then each time there I went to 2:08 then 2:02 then 1:59 and now 1:54.

When you’re learning it’s mostly about confidence along with learning technique. They go hand and hand so you can make huge leaps before you find the bike limits.

Ugh, I miss those days. I am so f'ing stoked now about 1/2 a second improvement. So much more work for so little gain.

For sure. That’s why it’s fun to try new disciplines. I was going flat tracking this year before the virus shit it down. I showed you the 85 I bought to race didn’t I?
