To answer your questions it's a combination of all those things but I think I just wanted to go fast and I knew that I didn't know how to so I was very teachable. One thing that I have always done is TRY everything that the fast guys suggested I try and I never made excuses. Sometimes when I work with guys every critique I give them, they give me a reason or excuse for it. How can you really progress like that?

I always tried to keep up with the guy that just passed me, I listened to guys like Ty, Alonzo, Jimmy, Allan, Irish and others who were all faster than me. I crashed a lot, wasn't overly scared (can't say I wasn't scared at all cuz I get scared all the time!), I lost weight, took advanced classes, made a bunch of mistakes and I really cared about my lap times.

Nowadays I just try to keep my weight down and try to hang with the front runners for as long as I can and ain't scared to crash trying.

I also endurance race.

I need about 2 seconds at every single track.

On deck is doing something with this stock motor.

Edit: And I don't have this stuff figured out yet. Not even close. I'm still amazed at the guys in front of me. I have a long way to go to get where I want to be, but it isn't as far away as it once was.
good planning, when i grow up i want to be as fast as cdill(i wish)

Thanks, and thanks for all of your help on getting me out there. The plastics are badass, and at least made me look faster with all those stickers and rashes lol. You really saved me with the broken shifter too, I was kind of screwed there!

A few of us from Fastline (R6 #74) put in a poor effort to take a clapped out 2003 R6 and give it a run in SSCE endurance. We had an oil weep we had to diaper, a rear tire that gave out fast and early, a water boiling issue, and no one liked the bike or suspension. Late in the day we just called it quits and went back to the pits tired and exhausted after a mere 93 laps.

The good news is that I (Novice #486) got to go CMRA racing after a 7 year break from my first and only endurance race. 3 30 minutes stints. Man o man I forgot how fast race pace is. Relatively speaking, I improved a lot, and turned my first 2:00 minute lap at TWS (Texas World Speedway), dragging both knees, sliding all around, and generally getting in the way of guys who know the race line there. 7 years ago a 2:10 was a pipe dream for me. Now, I can visualize 1:50's by end of the year. Bad news is, I got passed all three stints like I was sitting still. Towards the end I started feeling it, but the tire was so far gone it was slip and slide out of every corner. Flat track fun. Makes me think that on a good bike I could have hit 55's or so. Freaking fun fun fun.

My son Sid (186 Novice) turned a 1:57 on the same bike. Unfortunately, on Sunday in practice on his sprint bike he ran off and splashed into the only water hazard at the track. This is kind of a habit for him, lol. Not crashing, but finding off track water hazards wherever they exist. He pin holed the radiator on his gixxer and had to pull out of SSB and SSB Novice sprints. He'll get em at ECR next month, and we'll be back in action on the R6 with fresh meat, fresh valve adjustment, a suspension set up, and renewed hope for keeping up with someone, lol.

I can't wait for ECR. Gonna endurance the Ninja 250, and the R6. Woot Woot.

A very modest appraisal and an intresting insight

What sort of rwhp does the stock motor make and what are you hoping for??
How much of the 2 seconds you say you need do you think it may give you??
Which brand slipper clutch are you using if you dont mind me asking?

I think this bike puts out about 155 at best, on pump gas... It's never been on a dyno. I think Ty's 08 GSXR 1000 that eventually Jeremy Louder raced was making 178.. legally.

I'd bet a nicely tuned motor would give someone 1 second at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I have no facts to base this on it's just a straight assumption on my part.

OEM slipper.

You're the 2nd person that has said that but Jim Cambora said that I wouldn't get anything without more compression. I dont know... I sure dont want to spend $120 on 5 gallons for nothing.

This 240 lber that would get blown away on the front straight was passing and drafting on the front straight Sunday. Unless I was smoking through the chicane I don't see how that is possible. Especially after I thought my bike was down on power from Mondays practice.

IMO a good aftermarket slipper would gain you some time depending on how big an issue you may be having with the rearend under hard braking.

stock motor good effort

how much does one have to spend to get 175+ at the rear wheel on your model??

back in the superstock (stock engine) days my buds would practice and qualify on pump gas (cheaper) but control elf race fuel was mandatory on race day and guess what, little to no difference in the lap times......
now with a tuned motor different story
