Hey,

Taking the hornet 900 to a track day shortly any suggestions for tweaks for my roadie to help track.

SO far:
- Aftermarket Screen to reduce wind blast and keep weight on front wheel
- Braided Brake lines

Suggestions people have made:
- Drop forks through trip clamps bout 20-25mm
- move handlebars forward and down a bit.
(i presume this is to move more weight over front tyre to increase cornering ability)

Any suggestions or comments?
Im not so convinced by the handlebar movement and forks dropped.
If someone has done these or taking the 900 for track day give us some info

Thanks Texas,

This is first outting on the 900 so im going to take tools and tweak as i go hoepfully, biggest problem i have is i have a '02 hornet with only the adjustable rear pre-load which is a bummer.

I thought 20mm was excessive when i read it i think ill start out stock and go from there.

I have a set of scar bars left over from doing up my bros dirt bike which are 22mm so i might have a play with those there slightly narrower and curve toward me more.

I love my hornet and it handles well i just find it slightly harder to corner then mates cbr600 (i know there chalk and cheese) but smashes it out of corners just aiming to get the best out of the big girl

The big girl loved eastern creek over the weekend!

But like you guys said i found i was constantly peg and toe scraping.
Took off the bottom protectors and still scrap!
Theres a bit more cornering to be had out of the big girl yet!

Anyone put rearsets on 900?
Theres a couple on ebay from japan for round 300AUD which is reasonable.

But there arent many around! Do the hornet 600 race rearsets fit onto a 900?
