I might pay the $25 to get my suspension dialed in. I've never even touched it for the track. I still have my front set up for doing stoppies.

Yeah I know. The bike handles good except the front end kinda wobbles in the turns sometimes. I've talked to my buddy and he thinks I don't have enough rebound.

Adjusting the Geometry and Setting up the suspension was the best money I've spent thus far on my bike.
They guys at Motorcycles Unlimited have this down to a sience

The fastest 600 lap is by Larry Meyers at a low :38. 1K record is a low :36. Personally I tend to run in the :46-:50's shooting video of the faster guys. Without the camera and getting after it my best lap is a :41.2 off the trasnponder loop. I'll be pulling a few guys into the upper :40's this weekend if anyone else wants to keep pace c'mon down.................

BigD929RR-
You're saying you were running 1:50's on a stunter bike with jacked up forks? How were you being timed?
You're either crazy fast, or whoever was timing you was a little off....
Not trying to hate, just curious. Were you using a transpoder or lap timer to get that time?
I had a lap timer running off a transponder. I could be alot faster if I invested more money on things like steel braided lines and suspension but I don't want to sink too much money into my bike because I don't plan on keeping it. I want to start racing but my bike against new Gix1000's won't stand a chance. I hope to find a salvaged 1000RR or Gix1000 to make a race bike out of.

No matter though, just curious if you were having someone "time" you or if you were on a lap timer or transponder for your times.

1:50 is a good pace.
I thought the lap timer is what is mounted on the bike and you pass the transponder which is stationed somewhere on the track? Anyways, however it works, I had a laptimer on my bike.

Timer / transponders are on the bike. You pass a beacon to trigger the timer. Or a reciever loop to catch the transponder as they pass a certain point on the track.

I'm sure cars will be running as well, so 30 min on & 30 min off
I usually show up around 7:30 to 8 AM
