New member from New Orleans

Hello guys, my name is Vince and I just bought a 2016 r1. My last bike was a 2012 aprilia rsv4 which was an amazing machine. I've been doing a track day every month or 2 and it seems like the r1 was the best bike for the job. So far I like it a lot but there are a few changes I wanna make. Anyway, I'm excited to see how the bike does at the track and I hope that it's everything I expected. Cheers

What changes are you going to make??? Are you just talking about mods & flash or something bigger and better?

Just the normal stuff that everybody else does. I just bought a link pipe from a member here and I'll get the ecu flashed to help with the fueling/jerky throttle. Possibly an auto tuner or a custome tune as well if I'm not happy with just the flash. I'm trying to decide on front brake pads since I can already tell that they're not going to be very confident inspiring at the track. And the suspension is entirely too stiff so I'll play around with that. I'll try to find a good baseline setting and I'll fine tune it in April at the next track day. Any input or suggestions???
