building the racebike

ok so, so far all i have are miscellenious parts incase the bike gets wreck at the track. and racetech springs for the forks.. ive been qouted $1,163
for the following parts. (penske rear shock, vortex rearsets, 520RK /1 down in front aluminum rear sprocket kit.) Does that sound pretty good?

patrick, ill be bringing my bike to you when i have all my things in hand like you said last time we met. or can you do better for me? i thought about going with the things i need most first, but im just not happy with the suspension the way it is now, so i know i have to change the back to something, i was told a good alternative was just changing the spring for the back shock or going with a FOX rear with is liek $500 or so, i know just doing the spring or the fox will never be as good as the penske unit, but how close would it be? and would the price difference be worth it? ricky cant do suspension stuff so ill be bringing it to you for installing the racetech springs and tuning, along with the back, oh ya and i still have that kink in the front rim which make the air leak... i posted this on here instead of calling cuz im open to everyones advice.:confused2

if you're gonna spring the front you should really re-valve also.. part of the package, valving will make a big difference for your front end

you'd do better spending the $$$ on track schools like keith code superbike school freddie spencers those types of schools vs the local trackdays.......

stock the bike is well over your riding limits.

freddie spencer on a fat ol VFR.........he would take passengers and lap the students w/ a passenger on the outside.
