    Track Day VIR South with PRE, Fri-Sun, 6/24-26

    Try them in a car, then add in $500 track brake pads (which I don't have, so brake early and gentle-ish) and $1,300 sets of tires. Gulp! I'll stick to racing bicycles.

    Is a "rear warmer" the same as a heated seat? And why does someone else own your heated seat? Can't we just stick with heated greeps?

    You could switch to a steel braided cable to add some stiffness

    Track Day VIR South with PRE, Fri-Sun, 6/24-26

    You can easily make up 10 seconds at tracks with a chicane if you leverage (I love that word) your dual sport skillz and cut the track. Handlebars straight, throttle to the stops = lap record!

    The other commenter also has a YouTube channel, with a helpful video shot sideways on a cell phone. I did watch it to look for helpful hints and tips, and he may offer some suspension setup advice, as he has a CBR 500 for sale with the forks slid up in the clamps approximately 1 foot. He does...

    That's where you limit the tach needle going into the red. The viewer just can't hear it, perhaps due to the unique sounds of your parallel twin SV-650R1. I try to practice red limiting, just like b-mart. Your engines last longer that way. It's reassuring to know that he was at CMP...

    Track Day Road Atlanta w/N2 July 2nd and 3rd

    Ahem.....I distinctly remember we discussed cutting the track there, primarily by going straight through the grass.

    Judging from the physique of most of the above riders, I don't think they are burning the same calories we are burning.

    Boike’s and JAS’s (and anyone else’s) random questions thread that doesn’t want to start a new one!

    Do a couple things before you spend the dinero grande on a damper for the DRZ: Set the sag (make sure you have the correct springs for your weight, too). Should be 1/3 of travel. Drop the forks flush with the top of the clamps if they aren't already. Put the bike on a stand with the front...

    Possibly add countershaft sprocket to that list. Or every bolt on a KTM 690 with a piston the size of a 40 gallon trash can lid.
