Learning Curves

Hey All,

I'm taking LCR on the 7th at BHF and I noticed on their web page it says only to use water in the cooling system of liquid cooled bikes: No Anti-Freeze. - Does anybody now: Can I use Water Wetter?

Any other pointers for a new guy would be cool, too.

Thanks in advance,
Canbiter

WaterWetter is fine.

Are you doing one of the sportrider trackdays or the race license school?

Well if he's doing it the 7th, that would be the race school Markie Mark.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Make sure your bike is prepped, get plenty of sleep the night before and give yourself plenty of time to get thru tech and be ready for the track walk. There's a lot to cover and it will go fast. Ask questions. And get ready for a great time!

Ya, it's the license school. Thanks, I'll use water wetter then.

I have a place to stay in Rockford the night before so I should be well rested and be able to get there nice and early.

I'm actually preping right now, I just finished the saftey wire, on to the coolant.

Thanks!

You'll have a good time!

Like Kim mentioned pay attention durring the trackwalk portion, Rick spews out some good info on the lines/braking points...ect In the classroom sessions you'll get tons of useful info about race procedures, tech, rules.

Also I'd recommend hooking up with Jason D'Amico during the riding portions. He races an SV650 and could probably be pretty helpful to you.

Have fun dude!
