Eastern Creek Track Day - June 2

Post  Cameron on Fri 28 Mar 2014, 8:33 am

First topic message reminder :

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Time for another track day!
Date proposed is Monday June 2, 2014.

For those never experienced a track day before, it is open to all experience levels with 4 different riding groups. 6 x 20 minute sessions. 
It is the most fun you can have on a motorcycle. Well i think so anyway. 

So who is up for a Bandit track day at the mighty EC?

All in say AYE!!

Really, really good.  The only problem was the lack of adjustability, Laurie suggested that we could get around that by taking a fully adjustable set of Showa 43mm RSU forks (probably off something like a CBR600F4i) and mixing and matching parts to give a fully adjustable B1250 front-end.


First good news is that he is back and has setup a shop in Bayldon Ave Queen-b-hole.
Would also suggest a Holeshot fork brace as I found this made a significant difference.


So, to sum up; go have a chat to Laurie, (you should be able to find contact info on Canberra Riders).

Therein lies the conundrum. I'm normally happy to take the big dollar saving in buying a non adjustable bike and reinvesting a percentage of the saving in setting it up for how/where I most commonly ride.

First good news is that he is back and has setup a shop in Bayldon Ave Queen-b-hole.
And that, Dekenai, is indeed good news!!

Tried it, didn't like it. Jimcoleman sold it to someone on the forum shortly thereafter. (I was talking to Laurie about them some time later and he doesn't like them either.)


So, to sum up; go have a chat to Laurie, (you should be able to find contact info on Canberra Riders).

I may go see him about about my current fork incontinence but have been content with his original work.
Before the Bandit gets any more loving my Duke will get bouncy bits work but I've talked to Terry Hayes about it cos he's da man for WP.

I bought the brace off of Jim.  I could notice a definite improvement with it on.  Jim probably couldn't notice anything cause he rides like a girl ......  So I've been told.   Razz

Heeheee,

Unfortunate timing though Hammy, he's just driven out of my driveway (before I'd seen your golden post)
Now I'll just open a bag of popcorn and wait for him to log in.   Hehehehe

The best mod I found for a track day was to jack up the rear. I had a 35mm lift on the back and the big bitch turned like a much lighter bike. It was hopeless on the road but brilliant on the track.

No. Haven't forgotten.  I once owned a GSX as well. But mine had an "R" on the end of it which stood for Rapid . But then, that was tame compared to the Bird.   tongue
