What kit is that
Not sure what you mean, I think you are you talking about the bodywork. It's a Hotbodies set and it held up well during my minor low side.

So I got back out there last thursday May 3/12. I got her sorted Renthal clip ons and grips, Woodcraft replacement peg and Fren Tubo type 4 Carbon Fiber lines all installed.












And here's a couple of me holding up traffic :laugh I need more seat time to get used to the bike and actually remember how to ride. All in all had a great day, gonna get back out again asap!!!

I should also add that I did not get my front/rear sprocket or DID chain on as the front sprocket nut did not want to come off. :headbang: Hopefully I'll get them installed as well as the Kit ECU and get the bike on the dyno before the next trackdays, May/19, 20 and 21.

I'm not a believer in frame sliders I've seen them catch too many times and flip the bike. I know they do help in a crash,actually I'm looking into some tank sliders as the tank seems to be one of the first things to touch.

I did the most recent one at Shannonville long track, before that was TMP Cayuga. I'm going to Mosport July 8th for Racer5 race school and then back at Shannonville on the 12th and TMP on the 14th and 15th.

Racer 5 and Rider's Choice both host great trackdays with lots of experienced riders to help you out, give either one a call you can't go wrong.
