Thanks to Dan Ortega

Hey Dan thanks for the imput on geometry setup. I messed with it a bunch at Blackhawk last weekend and ran my fastest laps ever plus the bike felt great. 1:12:62 i'm on my way to the 11's. I also went to a 190 rear and had infinite grip on the exits.

No worries man...I'm glad I was able to help you out.
Keep in mind *if* you switch to the 190....it almost has TOO much grip for the 05 r6. The chassis is WAY too stiff and It pushes the front into and thru turns. (& it doesn't have enough trail but i'm not going to bore you with a bunch of chassis/geometry talk).
Nice job with the lap times keep at it you'll get faster!

ya I'm going to have my work cut out for me when I come back cuz I'm pretty sure it's gonna be 9s at blackhawk on a 600 to win(on a contingency weekend) so it's all good, I know I can do a 9s there(I can run 10s all day long at race pace with my best being a 1:10.008 last year on my 05 R6), I'm just hoping I can get my 06/07 r6 working good enough to go fast on. LOL

Congrats Chris! I dropped 2 seconds too over the weekend down to 1:16's and the geometry's still goofy on my bike. Thanks for the tips Dan, I'll give you a ring when I get some time to measure things out. It's finally making sense why I kept having to make my front stiffer and stiffer and under hard braking the front end would still shudder.

laptimes are up too now.

TOO much grip! Damn i didn't think there was such a thing. I keep a look out for that big 190 pushing me around but until then its the best way for me to get a better drive on all those built 600's.

I'm sure as soon as you get back on that track you'll be whooping everybody's ass. Except maybe me if i keep dropping these times. Either way i'm looking forward to racing with you next year.

Yeah Chris now you just need some more power in that thing. Oh and not to threadjack but ran a 1:12.5 so now I just need to quit being a sissy and use some of the power I got. 11's sound good next race at BHF? I know I know you are thinking 10's arent you? lol

Ha Ha Ha! Right again Dan! Too much grip with that 190. Ain't that a bitch. Went to Putnam and was just plowing the front tire everywhere it was ridiculous. Thanks again for the imput. Pretty sure a 180 is going right back on.
