do you have the bike lowered already ? if not pic up a set of lowering links for the back and sliide the front forks down thru the tripple trees and pic up a front end lowering strap for the front. all this helps out a ton at the track. also you could regear the bike if you havent already also, dependin on your weight on how much gearing you will need.

no problem i would start with -1 on the front and see where your at 1st and then go up +2 or 3 in the back.

I'm 160 suited my gearing is -1 +6. i have good success with that. also i have a set of adjustable lowering links, i think they run about $110, its worth the money to get it adjusted. I have found that some tracks require height restrictions. also helps with the rear grip if you raise it up, in case tracks aren't prepped right
