Guess we'll see how it goes Sunday. Hopefully, the new SN won't be CBR Crash - maybe just Slow CBR...

SN's aside, what do you guys think about the bike mods. Picked the right things, missed the point, etc.

When I picked the bike and then the mods - I wanted a good street bike that would be relatively comfortable on 400-500 mile hill country rides, but also good to go for the track. I had kept the Tuono for a long time as a track only bike, but I hardly ever get to the track due to work, and hated it just sitting there.

^^^ He has a bazzaz with all the goodies on it, no need for a PC3.

The bike is pretty well set up. Although some of the mods won't "shine" in the street. Per instance, you only have a slip on, ther is no real need for fuel system. Likewise the quick shifter. I'd suggest you getting a full system or maybe some MJS headers to conver that slip on into a full system.

Likewise, since you already have a TTX on the rear, you may consider putting some cartridges on the front, could be Ohlins or other brands like AK-20s.

Pretty solid bike.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I got the bazzaz primarily to be able to richen the mixture after adding a bazzaz z-bomb. The CBR sold in the States got neutered pretty good on the top end. The z-bomb removes the restriction, but at the expense of further leaning out the mix. So far, I like the quick shifter on the street. The traction control isn't a factor and of no help on the street that I notice. Maybe at the track?

I hated the stock rear shock, I'm 6'-2" and 220# so couldn't set rear sag also the dampening was poor. Oddly, no issues for me with setting sag for the front and dampening is good. No doubt AK-20 or other would be of benefit for some, but I just not that fast street or track. Maybe some point in future.

Nice set up

I think you've done a good job on the setup. Most of us can't ride these bikes to there potential anyway. I'm with you on the CBR and suspension settings. Me being your size has hampered me a little, but these CBR 1000's are tough machines. Anyway, nice set up Dude! See you Sunday @ MSRH.

Thanks much. I certainly can't ride it to its potential - not even close. Last track day I did was about 18 months ago, and haven't been to MSR-H since 2008. This will be my first time on the CBR at the track. Look forward to meeting you on the 6th

I love the Bazzaz quick shifter. It is better than the PC one too.
