I had an R6 for a long time and absolutely loved it. I want to trade my built crossplane R1 for an R6 once I get the motor back from KWS.

Here's my solution to the lap timer mounting problem. I had the ignition bracket milled off and custom bracket fabricated. Works very well, as it falls in the line of sight when I need to see either the dash or the lap timer (predicted lap times). Also my go-pro can see the screen of the lap timer so it records videos with lap times and predicted lap times. It makes watching race videos more interesting.

You can do that with Woodcraft key eliminator harness or when you go with kit ecu/harness. But I'm sure you knew all this.

I was very annoyed with the key switch bracket being in the way so it felt good to mill it off and make some space for the useful equipment.

Yeah I'm afraid my setup will require me to look down while running down the straight. I'll look into modifying my upper triple clamp this winter or whenever I have time.

What do you think of this:

Zeta Flight Top Bridge Upper Triple Clamp - 2016-18 Kawasaki ZX-10R / RR

As far as looking at the timer while riding, I certainly know the importance of keeping your eyes up--so it's important to place the timer so that you can glance at it while keeping your peripheral vision still working. MotoGP riders always look at their dash but it's in their line of sight. With your Solo 2 DL, you can configure lights to indicate split times being better or worse so you can see those with peripheral vision.

Looking at the Zeta unit again, it seems like it might still have the ignition bracket so it's meant more for street bikes than race bikes.

Iíll stick with the stock upper to keep the Superstock naziís happy. Iíll pull it after CMP next weekend and get it modified over my summer break.
