After ensuring the bike is solid from a safety perspective, upgrade the rider and then upgrade the bike.


You'd be shocked at what an intermediate rider could do on your bike in terms of speed, braking, and lap times.

I agree again. Brena has basically the same bike, although there is nothing stock on it, that thing still struts.

I agree about leaving it stock. just practice on your exit line and probly go down a gear in that turn. get those rpms up to give you more power on your exit so you can pick up faster than they can. I ride a 750 and I get a jump on alot of 1000 out there. after i passem I know they coming but they cant get me on time for the corner

this will help you decide on your gearing changes. Anyone can use this. It's not exact but it will give you an idea of how much gains/minuses you will get out of a gear change.

I plan to do +2 sometime in the future (supersprox)

If you are going to do many TD's get a gearing chart. A simple gearing chart, not gearing commander, it will confuse you.

Buy 2-3 front sprockets and 3-4 rear and go to your TD prepared to change sprockets. To get an idea as to what they do and how to use your chart start changing fronts, it makes a notable difference. The you will see how the chart works and it will help you in the future for small changes w/ the rear, rear/front changes. Takes a little time to figure out, but if you do this you will be miles ahead of 99.9% of the TD guys and 99% ahead of most racers.

Gearing is one of the most important things for a good laptime.

And, your gearing WILL change when you get faster, wind changes direction, temp. changes, etc. Don't be afraid to make changes.

I had the same problem at TWS (Texas World Speedway). We were allowed to pass on the outside and that helped tremendously, but I did not pass very much since some of the riders lines out there were unpredictable and my throttle control is very choppy. I became very familiar with the "hot pit" I would wait for everyone to pass up and wait for a big gap and go back out there and reel em in! Plus the occasional whoolie through pit lane is fun!
