KR on a trackday

Post by StrokerBoy » Mon Aug 01, 2011 9:01 pm

Well, both me and the bike survived Friday, on Cadwell full circuit. I'm never gonna set any lap records, but I managed to pick off a couple of VFR400's and even a 600 or two in my novice group most sessions. The pics don't lie though, I'm not much cop at leaning over... :oops:

The bike got harder to start throughout the day, but didn't miss a beat once running. I had to nip up the exhaust bolts at lunchtime, it was blowing a bit from the front one. Managed 137kms over 6 sessions.

Oh, and don't take the piss out of my leathers, they were free... :wink:

I see why someone gave you the leather now :lol:
I have never done a track day before, maybe one day but on someone else's bike :)

the important thing is, you enjoyed yourself not how quick you went, or what leathers you used.

Good to see a classic KR out on track too :D

Worked out why it was so loud at the noise test (100 dB) and why it seemed to get louder all day...

... there's a hole in the lower seam of the rear exhaust.

The front pipe comes off in a couple of minutes, the rear one means dismantling half the bike. :cry:
