what to buy next

Here is a list of the mods on my trackbike:

Race Plastics and sliders of course
Ohlin's rear shock
Ohlin's 25mm carts
Ohlin's steering dampner
Vortex rear sets
Pazzo Levers
Woodcraft clip ons
Woodcraft engine and clutch covers
Akrapovic slip on exhaust
SS brake lines
520 chain and (-1, +2) sprocket conversion
Extra wheels, tires, plastics, sub frame, seat, wind screen etc.

Was thinking about doing some engine performance work. Should I look into a full exhaust system? Velocity stacks? Power Commander? Are there any simpler tricks to get more out of a GSXR 600?

Any serious advice is greatly appreciated.

Velocity stacks could change where the powerband lies, not necessarily the power itself.

Full exhaust and PCM dynoing may give you ten tops.

If you're willing to invest the time, look for cam upgrades. Im not sure what's available for your particular model but that's not too major a job and would yield the most results; since you'd be changing the amount that can fill the cylinder not just the volume that comes out.


Maybe others have some ideas/experience too.

cams with velosity stacks and a tune. i dont know if flow work would yield any more but if you did vstacks alone it wouldnt be worth it imo. both together would make the difference

If your goal is to be better and faster on the track and have lower lap times, then the best thing you can do is buy more track time and get some good instruction.


Upgrading the rider is more effective than upgrading the engine. Just my 2 cents.

This.

No replacement for seat time & Ty's class sounds like a great idea(I know some of his vids are vert helpful). I'm gonna be taking it in the next few trackdays.
