Here's a wecloming opportunity for you to post about what you would DO to my bike. :laughing:

There, now that I got the obvious out of the way.... :lmao:.... you guys are too predictable..... :jester .....

I ride my 07 600RR on Track and Street (long flat trafficy chicago streets) :laughing

So far the only thing I have done to this sweet machine is SS brake lines, Corsa III Tires, Suspension Adjustment, Flush Mount Front Signals, Frame Sliders, Bar Ends, Rear Spools, and the fender is still stock because its easy for track. Just unscrew the entire kit, brake lamp and all, and you're ready for track.... pop it back on, and you're ready for street.

So, if you rode my 600RR at the flip of a switch from street to track to street... what mods would you do?

Yep, all you need is some decent pads. I like Vesrah RJL and DP RDP for street/track use.
Stock suspension is pretty darn good. Unless you're trying to run at the front of the A group, you won't notice any real difference other than a placebo effect and $2.5G's less in your account for a 25mm kit and a triple clicker.

Shorty levers? I noticed i have less fatigue in my braking hand from using Pazzo shorties (i'm too poor to get the clutch lever).

Suspension is set.

Stock pads are 50% worn, so I will be getting new ones next season. Brand suggestions?
I was referring to getting it resprung and valved for your weight and riding style, not just fiddling with the stockers.

Send the shock and forks to Thermosman.



Get some rear sets and then put the icing on the cake with some carbon fiber wheels!

I thought that's what I had done. I have no idea what Im doing, mechanically. :laughing:

The round "thingie" on the back has a sticker on it now. :lmao:

How much does this cost? And where's the best place to get this done?

I have stomp grip.
PC - is that a power commander? I dont need one of those.
Whats the benefit of adjustable rear sets?
Whats a gear indicator?
Ummm...they're adjustable. :) No seriously, more clearence at the track...more comfort on the street....or maybe you find one position you like for both....they're probably also lighter and certainly look better.

A gear indicator tells you what gear you're in....like when you're hard on the brakes coming into T1, kickin' down gears, jockying for position, and for whatever reason lose track of what gear you're in. They come stock on some bikes such as the GSXR line up.

How does it tell you what gear you are in? by sight? Because I dont look down at my bike when Im on track. I dont think that would benefit me.
