Since I am new at racing I wanted to be as prepared as possible. My question is about the transponder. I know CCS issue's them out when you register for the event no biggie. But I am wondering where you guys mounted it on your 1krr. I am running the 07 so I just wanted a heads up on this minor issue. Also what kind of case and where to get one?

Ccs has a bracket and a bag that they sell for $5 & $10 respectivly. As long as it's pointed backwards u will be fine. Most people mount on the top of the tail but mine is underneath , ziptied. With the undertail exhaust u will most likely put it on top. Just bring a drill with u and ziptie the bracket at the race. U will be fine as long as u tape the transponder to the bracket as extra protection cuz sometimes the vibration will allow the bracket to let go of it. And it's $250 if u lose it.

Thanks ya I actually wanted to mount it on top. Now that I know what number I got I am glad I got a 2 digit number for this year. looks like I still have to repaint the number plates to make room for the numbers. What size do you guys run on the back height X width demensions and on the front. I was reading the 2009 rulebook and all it says is 6" in the back and 8" front but doesn't specify width.

As far as the transponder bracket. Do they sell them at the event?

Also do we rent the transponder or do they issue one to you for that event?

The standard numbers you buy from the dealer in 6in. should be fine.
I've ran as small as 4in. because my CCS # is three digit and haven't had a problem but it seems tech changes there minds from event to event.

They have the mounts at the track. They supply the transponder at no charge, but I think this year you may be able to buy your own.

If I could afford doing the entire Mid-Atlantic season I would just buy one but for now I plan on riding every Summit Event for the CCS. Just got to remember to bring the drill to fit the bracket on. Have you done any races this year?

I haven't been out there this year yet. I will probably be there the end of May with CCS/ASRA.

I will be out their all three days. Probably going to run in the HW class and GTU class as well. I am try'n to figure out my pre-registration paperwork right now. But I think the GTU is 25 min long and the rest are 7 laps each.

You can't run a 1000 in GTU. That is for 600's.

You can run GTO, Unlimited Supersport, Unlimited Superbike, and Unlimited GP.
You have to run DOT's in Unlimited Supersport but can run slicks in the other races.

I meant to say GTO. I was wondering about the tires and I went ahead and got a few sets of DOT's.

I think I will try slicks eventually, but that will have to wait until I figure out how to ride the track in dry weather.

Oh and I called CCS HQ and asked about the transponder brackets they sold in the past and they said they switched to the leather bag for them. Because they had alot of issues with the brackets coming loose.
