First Track Day

Hey guys, I have not posted before, but I thought I would share with you all that my 02 954 was unbelievable. I was killing a ducati 999 on accleration. I ran behind a control rider to get bumped to intermediate, he was on an r1 and did not gain any on the straights. I ran at barbers in Birmingham Al. which is where I live so the straights were pretty short, but for a little 954 to keep up with an 06 r1 was impressive. I love my bike! I tried to attatch some pics but they were to large.

02 954 yosh full, pc3r, k&n(came with bike, will replace with factory soon) and soon to have-factory pro velocity stacks, matched injectors, and then a dyno tune with a local shop.

Re: First Track Day

I saw the Barber track on TV. Looks like fun. My 954 is an o3. Acrapovic slip on. Everything else performance wise is stock. I wanted to ask you... are you running stock sprocket ratios?

Re: First Track Day

Glad you had fun. I agree, the 954 is still a great bike. I own an 02. I have not felt like my equipment has held me back at trackdays. Only my own skill. The 954 can still run with the big boys. Riders skill will make the determining factor.

Re: First Track Day

yes i am on stock gear, and for Barbers it works out perfect. I am just about to hit rev limit in 4th on the two big sraights and 3rd in short middle straight before turn 5(hairpin). I only use 2-3-4 on the entire track

Re: First Track Day

Awesome. I cant wait to get to Barber for the first time. You are lucky to live close to one of the best m/c tracks in the country.

btw

Re: First Track Day

I noticed some discoloration spots on front rotors. Is this glazing? any ideas? does not appear to change brakes and I never had a hint of fade on track day.
