Race tech has really good stuff. Have their spring and kits in r6 forks. Had suspension guy set it up but when I went to take some base measurements found the compression and rebound damper different on each side. Was a little upset. I set up the sag and rebound with a friends help. Set all the high speed and low speed setting in the middle. Going to put a little less rebound on back. Again great pictures. Parts get really close to the ground in corners as your cornering shot shows. Hope those are at least Kevlar jeans. Was that a track day? If so how do you get ways with no leathers? Be careful.

Old Kevlar jeans. I bought a new Bell helmet 18 months ago but I do need to buy some new riding gear.
Not really a track day more a ride weekend so the rules were a bit relaxed, 4 x 20min sessions on Saturday and the same on sunday.

Bike look great. How was the handling and did it give you any oh shit moments, rephrase did you give yourself any of those moments. Did your buddies ask you why you were riding a museum piece at the race track? Please do get some gear. Cheap gauntlet gloves, a back protector, and boots with same ankle protection. Looks good and on top of that fun. So nice not to be worrying about a mom in her minivan yelling at her kids, or that random blown 18 wheel tire carcass in the middle of the road, or a pile of rocks in the middle of a blind corner.

Was looking on ebay today and it looks like somone on ebay is selling coffee mugs with a picture of my bike on them.

Hope I get one for free or some commission from the sales but I doubt it, lol.

Beautiful bike. Tempted to by a mug myself.

What's that old saying.... "Imitation is the best form of flattery"

Amazing RZ and has everything especially the new Yam bits you have on it……makes it an even better and more accurate upgrade from the original.
Only thing on the bike I don't care for is that clear rear light..needs a red one!!!

Yes the photos have turned up everywhere. Good to see people love it as much as I do.

My friend said the photo of my bike is also being used on the JIM LOMAS exhaust website.

Wonder if I could get a cheap set of pipes?

Yes the clutch cover is from ATR.
Purchased it a few years ago.
It fits perfectly no problems.
I probably should have powder coated the inner case black but we'll see how it goes.

It is a good looking cover. When I last visited the ATR shop he told me the new version will have a sight gauge to check the oil level. That is the one I'll be using when it's available. Nice to know the fit is perfect. Thanks for that.
