new trackday/race build
Here is the new track bike all completed except number plates for wera. 2013 zx6r 636, non abs model. took it to the dyno yesterday. 121 rear wheel hp, torque peak 50. I have over 100 hours into it so far in the last 4 weeks, and haven't ridden it more than 100 feet from the garage to the trailer a few times.
hoping next week for decent weather for a shake down here, then off to Barber motorsprts park for the STT weekend in 2 weeks. if the stars line up, maybe the wera gnf at barber the following week. would be nice to have this sorted and do well down there. hey, a guy can dream cant he?

most of all I want to thank my wife Lynne, for the support and putting up with my crap, throughout all of this. without her support, I would not be much of a person on this earth. she make me a better person, and the world a much better place.
