Track Day #2
Detailed blog and pics at http://trackagt650r.blogspot.com.au/
- Fitted Oggy Knobs - The kit says only fits up to 2010, but it fit fine on my 2012. Fitting only took 15 mins.
- Cleaned and lubed the chain. Flushed the cooling system. Lifted the front wheel guard and refitted.
- Added a 14 tooth front sprocket - Needed to adjust the chain tension 1 mark out in compensation for the smaller sprocket.
- Rear tread - Fitted and balanced Q2.
I haven't been on a bike since the first track day, so it took me a while to get back into the flow. The bike is working fine, the brakes are great and other than the main straight where we are down on speed compared to the 1000s and sports 600s I was able to circulate with the pack, which is highly satisfying.
No problems with the R/R this time. I was keeping the revs down changing around the 8-9k down the main straight, but keeping the revs down in the 4-5k range around the rest of the track.
I had a low side! Im fine. I wasnt smooth on the throttle (the AIS plug is back in and may have contributed) and was moving my about body mid corner... rookie. Ground sliders, ground front axle bolt, ground handle bar end, the gear lever C-clip popped off..... and that's it. The Oggy knob did its job perfectly and did not bend up or break. I used lock wire which fit into the C-clip groove securing the gear lever in place and the bike was good to go again. Did another 2 sessions and was improving my lap times. Timing with Racechrono and internal GPS (ok for ball park lap times).
What a great bike
