CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

Managed to fail massively and put my 929 down on a track day at brands hatch,

see below;


cold morning, cold tires, wasnt really paying to much attention on my warm up laps,

so from looking like this last summer....



to this......



shes all stripped down, with new fairings on the way, new foot pegs for my Harris Rear Sets, and a new alternator cover!! going to be doing a colour change as I cant afford OEM fairings so I have gone with Ebay replica fairings....





as you can see from the video, she flipped, has anyone got any advice on what I should possibly check in engine internals before starting her back up at the weekend?

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

I don't think you have anything to worry about. I crash my dirt bike all the time. I stand her up, kick her over and I'm off!

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

honestly, damage didn't look too bad. I'd replace fluids/filters and see if she starts. I don't think you'll have much problem

it's a case-by-case kinda thing. When you replace the filters/fluids, and they all hold with no leaks, fire it and see. But pay very close attention to see if something is amiss, so you can kill it immediately before it does any real damage

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

Once the tires hooked back up, she really flipped fast. Dirt and grass? Looks like your tailsection took a good smack too, does the reg/rec look ok?
I would check the fork tubes for true.
Should also measure your rotors for run-out. Spec is 0.30 (0.012)
Upper and lower triple clamp bolts holding your fork tubes are 20 lbf.ft
That's all I can think of.

Glad you were able to walk away.
Assuming that dude walkin in the vid was you.
Good luck on your rebuild.

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

Yeah, I meant the brake discs.

If you dont' remove the tubes to check for true, at least loosen and retorque all the triplecrown bolts to 20lbf-ft. Do the upper ones, then the lower ones.

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

u/l man. Glad you're walking back to it.

I have a spare alternator cover if you want it? It's scratched up from a slide of my old bike from the previous owner, supposedly at low speed on his gravel driveway. (before it was totalled)

It wouldn't do for someone wanting a bike to look its best but it's good enough for a track bike just very scratched without being broken.

Importantly, you can have it for nothing providing you pay the postage?

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

at least your okay, it looked like your tires just gave up on that one. Saw that you skipped a portion of the warm up's, now you know for next time. Fix it up and get back out there bro

Re: CBR 929 - First Track Crash!

That wasn't too bad overall. Glad you walked away from it! We wear the gear for a reason.
I wish I would've had my camera going when I bit it at the track. Mine stayed on the right side after I hit the gravel. Pea gravel gets into everything!
