Thanks for that shop manual. I have a decent amount of mechanical background working on cars back when I was a teen and plan on doing a good bit of work myself. This will definitely come in handy. Also thanks for the link to the engine sliders. Ordering them right now and hope they come in before my first track day on the bike possibly this Sunday.
Thanks! My stockpile of gear is... kind of ridiculous in my opinion for how far I am in (4 weeks since MSF course and less than 1 week on my own bike).
I have a Sedici 1 piece for the track. Already went down in it, low sided going ~20mph, just scuffed the Sedici logo on the left arm a tad, no other damage.
Dainese Super Speed Textile Jacket with AStar lvl 2 Nucleon back protector
AStar perforated full length boots, absolutely love these things.
AStar gloves (can't remember which ones) (needs replacing due to that track day fall).
Helmet is an AGV K3 which needs replacing as well (due to the fall, debatable as the shield is kind of the only thing that hit from the video evidence.)
Still need some good riding pants to round out everything as well as some street gloves and racing gloves. Definitely open to suggestions on anything as well as criticism.
As far as gear goes, think situational - think seasonally. I have perf Dainese 2-pc - make sure the jacket and pants zip together. That is a MUST
for most, if not all track days/schools; perf Sedici & Sidi boots; same goes for gloves. I wear this for late Spring, summer, early autumn situations. I have a Performance Bike (bicycle) camel back hydration system
. I throw in a bottle of a sports drink & a bottle of juice. If I can, I'll freeze the night prior.
I also have dedicated cool gear for hot weather, as well as dedicated warm gear. Invest in an electric jacket - don't puss-out and buy only a vest. I feel an electric jacket is an absolute must! There are also heated pants, gloves, booties & head cover; these are nice to have, whereas the e-jacket is a must.
My complementary gear to the above is totally H₂O-proof
. H₂O resistant stuff is quite simply not suitable. Don't waste your time/money on the stuff. If you get wet even on a fairly mild day your are rapidly inviting hypothermia. At which point your brain will start to misfire. And that's every bit as dangerous as hyperthermia.
I hope you have work stands, if not do spend the extra coin for Pit Bull
brand products - they are simply the best
. I guarantee you'll be glad you did. Also, they make a simple product that I LOVE, the Pit Crew Tire Wedge
Another item(s) that will utterly save your sanity are captive wheel spacers
. These wee gubbins will save you from sounding like you have Tourette's Syndrome.
For dozens of years I've been a dedicated fan of
's double-bubble (dbl) windscreen, but recently I switched to their Corsa
windscreen, and totally love it. https://www.sportbiketrackgear.com/z...sa-windscreen/
I personally believe that Fully Adjustable rearsets
are a must! As well as Fully Adjustable
are a must! https://www.speedymoto.com/products/...ars/omni-bars/
And yet another small item(s) that will save you money are the Woodcraft Folding toe pegs. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ding-toe-piece
Well, this list will keep you busy for a while. Good luck/have fun.
