Short story first: - I picked up a used 2005 CBR600RR track bike, I love riding the thing! Run Dunlop slicks now as I was chewing through street tires at a very aggressive pace... Ride in the advanced group also. Doing closed course events almost every weekend all summer long here in MN. I want to make my Gen 8 VFR track worthy at this point. This will be a backup, backup bike for my track bike. I have a road going 05 CBR600RR I use at the track also. I am going to leave a few idea's here and let you guys pick it apart. - Vortex frame sliders,don't want to cut the fairings, but im going to - T-rex racing front and rear axle sliders. Low sides happen once you get in the fast group.... Now I have two sets of leathers, gloves, boots, knee sliders, and helmets... - Axxion cartrdige kit for the forks sprung for a 200# rider. Install preload adjustment caps also. - Thurn Motorsports shim kit for rear shock to raise rear ~30mm. Steeper head angle = better turn in - Penske or ohlins rear shock? Will work with factory shock first, will want the rear end fairly stiff as there is enough power available. - Delkevic stainless shorty exhaust. The v4 sounds mean! - Factory quick shifter. - Bazzaz or power commander fuel tunner? Not sure if needed as it doesn't sound like there is much to gain? - Track take off tires (probably going to be dunlop Q4's or Q3+'s from my secondary wheelset from dedicated track bike) I would like to fit some woodcraft clipons on the bike along with some vortex rearsets. Not sure if this is possible though. Aluminum bars, solid foot pegs, and frame sliders are turning into consumables now :/ Probably just use those factory parts for now and turn it down a few notches when out on this bike.
