    Thanks FireSkull and Kreeeee,

    I do love the sound of a screaming R6, crazy how capable they are really still, great footage too.

    I have the stock exhaust too. I have a lot to learn so I welcome any feedback if you or any other seasoned track riders have any.

    Not really one to give advice tbh, as much as I've done i don't know everything, your body positioning looks fine, much like anything you're trying to be good at, it's just time and practice.

    Although if i was to give advice, it would be:

    Get the suspension setup for you, there'll normally be a guy at the track with tyre support that can do it for some cash.

    Race shift if you aren't already.

    Things like QS can help free up some concentration time on the bike.

    Stomp grips

    Tyre warmers and proper rubber, when i started using slicks i dropped 3 seconds of my lap times straight away, i use Dunlop 213 GP Pros.

    Don't forget track tuition, most places will have insteructos that will come out with you for free and help you fix anything that needs fixing, absolutely take them up on the offer, i paid not a lot of cash to go out with Simon Crafar and it was money well spent.

    just added some track fairings for the odd track day, it's all it needed.

    It's almost a shame to stick track fairing on those. They're so pretty!
