Bought it with track fairings, brembo master cylinder, crg levers, sato rear sets, akra slip on, pc III and a dyno jet quick shifter.

after my first track day at acs i knew the bike needed a lot of work. worked well but there was somethings i knew that needed to be improved so i immediately stripped it down for a prep.

got a little too crazy and bought some much needed upgrades before next session..
ohlins rear that i purchased from a member on here. brembo m4 calipers, samco sport hoses, -1 front sprocket and decided to try 200 series pirelli sc's

the darn valve cover gasket failed on me last track day so it was time for a new one. also started swapping the hoses and calipers.

the air filter was probably the original and was never changed. i replaced it with a k&n

the levers and rear sets were originially black and faded so i re anodized them gold and added a brake lever guard

i wasnt really a fan of the metallic green paint so i had the body work and tank wrapped in lime green. (the body work is attack racing) kawi green :) thats more like it.

drove far as hell to pick up some marchesini wheels for 700 bucks. a deal i couldnt pass up! also got rid of the akra slip on and put on a gp style exhaust. looks way better imo. still have the old one if anyone wants it! not the elbow though

some eye candy and new caliper hardware so i can safety wire it
IMG_2547.JPG

broke the zx header right where the slip on goes due to the previous owner dropping the bike and denting it at that spot. over time it finally snapped off so it was out of commission for a while until i found a new system.

in the mean time i went to chuckwalla again and took my baby (rc51) this thing rips but its soooo heavy. good times!

went last weekend to buttonwillow...turns out i had a blown 2nd gear since i bought the bike but the trans finally gave out in 2nd. coudnt ride in that gear at all. also had some issues with my clutch cable so that was fun fixing at the track.

since the last track day with the zx, i finally came across a akrapovic full titanium system and installed that and installed a suter slipper clutch. sucks that i didnt really get to ride the bike too much but i found a cheap stock trans on ebay and its currently being swapped. hopefully i get it back on time so i can install this bad boy! track day this sat again.
