The fairings are the main thing but there are a couple more that may be a matter of personal choice. Rearsets and GP shift linkage can raise your feet and pegs up. Rear spools so you can use a rear stand (that one sounds obvious but some guys dont have em). Swingarm, bar end, frame and fork sliders. That can help minimize the damage if you go down. Make sure your front braking system is top notch. Your suspension should be working properly as well and if you havent had someone help you get it set up there are many times guys at the track that can help out for a small fee. Take advantage of that. It can make a huge difference in how the bike handles and that translates into better and safer laps. Get yourself a good tire pressure gauge and use it. Keep an eye on hot and cold pressures during the day and adjust as needed. That also can affect the handling big time. Have fun. Thats the biggest. Theres no place this side of heaven better than the track so enjoy it!
Appreciate the info. I have most of that done. I flipped my linkage on the stock rear sets to gp. I thought about getting some cheap rearesets off eBay since they had decent review and wouldn't cost a shit ton o money. Do youuse steel braided lines on your bike
Besides odds and ends, suspension will be your biggest investment but you can run the stock setup until you get really quick. Once you're throwing down solid lap times and are taxing your stock suspension, it'll be time to look into setting up your suspension right.
A total of 19 riders so far with 2 zx10r's on the grid for 2020!
What are your predictions?
Personally, I'd like to see Toni Elias win again... but I gotta root for the Josh Herrin on the BMW. It would be nice to have some wins with Corey and Bradley on the zx10r.
After spending several hours of reading other build threads with full of eye candy stuff, I decided to start writing my own. :welcome:
Actually the build was started several months ago, at the end of the previous season, when I crashed my road bike in Slovakia while I was riding with a friend...

I have to say....this is my most ambitious race bike build (for me) yet. I will be ordering a brick ton of parts then tuning and such.
