BTW, i think that instructor is on the board. I'm the guy that almost rear ended you when you hit the rev limiter on the back straight. I was sizing you up until that happened. Look forward to seeing you out there next time.

I bet they suck. Why you ask? You thinking about doing something like that. There is a reason street bikes dont come stock with dirt bars. Same reason you dont see them in any of the street bike races.

easier for braking, and not that uncomfortable. clipons are more ergonomical when it comes to leaning into a turn though.

its plus's and minus's. but i'm going to go with the flow and keep the clip ons for racing.

My buddy ran a 1:40's with clip ons at MSRH. Same bike, wide dirt bike bars, no fairings, 1:43 - 1:44's. He couldn't keep the front end planted enough with stunt set-up to be confident on the high speed turns.

I saw your stunt bike at your house the other day. I find it amazing that you turn those lap times, given the set-up and condition of your bike. I'm not trying to say your bike isn't the bomb, but I think just by getting your controls in better state of tune (lubed front brake pivot point and master cylinder contact point, lubed clutch cable, controls easily accessible in race tuck position) would improve your lap times by 1-2 seconds on the same bike, same track, same rider. Despite the fact you are prolly very used to them as is, they are likely a hindrance to you being as smooth as your could be. I know that just having a sticky brake lever adds at least 10% to my stoppping distances, and pulls soooo much from my on-track confidence.

I think yours are set-up almost ideal. Most factory set-ups turn my wrists inward and make my fingers and hands go (more) numb. Your's make it feel more like a mountain bike or MX set-up, good for all day comfort and wider for more control.

That's a good time on your first day on a bike. Your countless hours of seat time stunting give you a huge advantage over guys like me who ride maybe 40-50 hours a year in total. I'd be lucky to break 1:55 at MSRH in my current state of tune, regardless of bike.
