No more RC-Tuono Frankenbike
I just did my 4th track day, but the first on the RC51 because I didn't think the little SV would be much fun on the big Thunderhill East track. Turns out I was right!
I put the Sato clip-ons and the HRC triple clamp, and Scotts damper back on the bike, and took off the upright bars. The fairing is still cut for the upright bars, but have a new one on the way. I will post pictures when it is all done.
Time to sell my trusty SV, as it does not provide the level of thrill the RC does.
Now for the questions.......
1) Are there any tires suitable for the track that are not slicks, but way better than street rubber - I read of a Dunlop GP something or other, but I can't find it for sale anywhere. I want to be able to take a street ride still, but have become addicted to the track.
2) The only way I could pass the guys on modern bikes, was to outbreak them. Now my brake rotors are blackened on the pad area, did I overheat them? I have the radial Brembo's from a Gixxer on my bike, with the Galfer wave rotors, which are decent, but not racing quality (I am only doing track days, and will not be racing). Do I need better pads and rotors?
3) Does anyone here repair Satos, as I have a low mount set with some rash I want to sell to feed my addiction.
Already looking forward to the next track day!
