Got the race plastics off and back into street trim. Time to scrub in new tires. It's a beautiful day to ride...I love this time of year!
Looks good Gear...cant wait to see the final results! Bikesplast, from the Czech Republic, is who makes the cover. HSBK is an authorized dealer for them.The gold standard on the air box is supposed to be highly efficient in stopping heat. Plus it looks tittles.
I’ll have to check the cover again; I can’t remember but I got it from HSBK. Actually @dcase4246 put me onto it. It should be painted Friday and the new tank grips arrive on Wednesday
Looks good! I got my emblems from here: Yamaha 1RC-2413B-00-00 - EMBLEM | Partzilla.comI may or may not have mounted the tank cover without waiting for the paint to dry. Due to a stomach bug, I haven’t been able to get my tank pads from the shop yet, so I’ll get those Friday. Need to order OEM emblems. Anyone got the skinny on quality emblems for the tank?

Man this sucks and I hope you're okay. Hopefully, no major damage occurred and mostly cosmetic. Good luck with the rebuild.Started the day on Friday looking like this...
Then in the last session, a racer bro felt the need to prove how fast he was at the apex of the most sketchy turn of the track (T4 Summit Main) right as I was arriving at said apex.....I had to pick the bike up and take evasive action, but ended up in the grass headed toward the next turn and the choice was put my bike down or potentially get tboned by on coming traffic....I chose the former.
My new crew chief in the background was less than impressed.... she was ready to go home.
I hear you on the high prices, I've been looking to buy a bigger trailer myself. I'm currently using a 5 X 8 trailer to haul my bike and it's tight! 😂Thanks brother. Hopefully I can upgrade in a year or so and get a 7x16. This 6x12 is nice but once a pit bike goes in; she’s a little cramped. A year and a half ago Tandem 7x16’s were 3k… now SA 6x12’s are 4K. I’m glad I found this used one, hopefully prices go back to normal.
Rd 4 West Palm. It’s been a rough weekend for me, my side fairing yesterday came off in qualifying and I fought to keep it on all Q instead of ripping it off, started far on the grid. Got a good start, was doing ok in 3rd until my visor popped open and one side came off in mid race. I got passed on lap 10/12 and couldn’t get back to the podium. Lunch now and one more 6 lap sprint to cap the weekend.
Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Hope you can finish the weekend strong...good luck!
Your buddies 2018 is nice with all kinds of goodies...trying to keep up with you I suspect😂 I see them rotobox boost wheels look nice😎Only 8…
That’s my buddies 2018 RF, we are going to the track tomorrow morning to ride Saturday.
I actually had an ape, a 2017 RF track only, but sold it last year. I rode it maybe 2 sessions, great bike.

Typically, what month is this done in? Is everyone welcome, or is it a select few of your race buddies? I would love to come down and ride with you!We will have a monkey works cycle date at the end of the year, Eric typically does a few times a year. You could always join us for one of those and bring whoever you’d like. I’ll get you details when I get them
Damn that's hot, it's going to be a scorcher this weekend. New pavement and a hot track will be tricky.
