Hi all,

If you got the money, a set of BST carbon fiber rims will make a HUGE difference. Other than that you have all your bases covered it seems
+1 on the rims and those lil covers for the brake and clutch fuild those make it hella fast..HRC ones from S.S are great
All that cool stuff and you're running EBC HH pads? What is this, 1999?

Upgrade to some real pads and get the most out of that 002 front. Vesrah SRJL's are my personal favs, they'll run ya about $160 for a set of fronts. 16's vs 17's depend on if you want initial bite or progressive.

Everyone seems to be a big fan of superbikesupply here, I'm sure they can get them for ya :)
Vesrah's are great, but pricey. Galfer HH are plenty for a street bike (1375 compound IIRC).

Nice mod list.

Brembo masters and calipers are cool (masters more important obviously)
Braketech rotors (need specific pads)
Samco hose kit (PITA install, but purdy)
gear indicator is nice @ the track... especially if you cover yer speedo
Test Ride 1 some pics and cosmetic upgrades

Carbon hugger

Ignore the chicken strips for now, this was a 20 minute test ride with no canyons. I will send new pics of my track day test ride to redeem myself in a few weeks.

Test Ride: A WHOLE NEW F ing BIKE!!!

Thanks for the quick replies as well. I plan to look into the brake pads...EBC SUCK!

+1 on the wheels, but I'm thinking Carrozzeria TRI-R's in the fall for cost reasons.

+1 on the fluid covers, dyno showed a definite 10hp increase over the stock covers. Amazing gain highly recommended

+1 on the gear indicator, got it installed on my speedometer, its great at the track!!!

Let me know what you all think.

Rizoma makes some trick reservoirs for your brake fluid up on your handle bars as well...

Re: Brake pads and rotors

Thanks for the recommendations on the pads and rotors. Quick question, how much better are the Vesrah RJL versus the SRJL??? It's a huge jump in price, any opinions?

Also, which rotors would you all recommend and how much better are they really over oem??? What are the true benefits to new rotors?

Thanks for the wheel recommendations too, they are the next on the list after summer.
check out the brakes section theres a bunch of threads with peoples opinions on which rotors are the best. GL
