First Track day on the RR
Today was my first chance to get the RR on the track.
Damn. Its fast. Faster than my BMW by a good 5-10 mph in the straights.
The Good: Power was phenomenal, Brakes were very good.
(ECU flash, Graves silencer, cat delete, stock header. Stock brakes Vesrah SRJL pads) 5th gear power wheelies.
The Bad: Toes were dragging, had to raise the rearsets. The stock e-damper sucked, had to swap for an analog revalved Ohlins.
The cluster tach is impossible to see. I have no idea how close to the rev limiter I am. It begins flashing, but its not readable.
Needs work: rear ride height. Needs another 5-10mm. Turns a little slow, runs a little wide on corner exit. And help get my toes off the deck.
Gearing: Im -1/+2 and, running TC on 2, and its power wheelieing in 5th gear. I think going back to a 39t rear may be in order.
Other than that, the bike was great. Takes a little more effort to ride than the BMW, but a lot faster.
Ill report again after the Kit cam install.....
Just my .02.
