My SRAD 750, for trackday

Hi,

This is my SRAD 750, bought few days ago, less than 22000 miles, of 1997.



This bike will be a 100% track bike, cheap for free practice and fun.

For my fiber fairing I'm looking for the code of paint scheme... I've found "SILVER Y2D=G7V" but where buy the paint (in spray) ?

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

Honestly, I'd use a color card to find a matching instead. I assume you want to match the tank but chances are that the original paint has faded some within those 16 years. So instead of spending a bunch on something to match the original shade, just go with something cheaper that matches what it is now - especially on a trackday bike I wouldn't spend too much on paint

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

F.P...Do yourself a favor and find a cheap track/stunter tank and keep that pretty tank on the side to complete the set of bodywork.
I have seen many folks kick themselves once the fun was over, wishing they had not left the stock tank on for track duty.
She-ite happens so why not let it happen to an already damaged tank?
You may, one day, decide to go back to stock and you'll be glad you kept that nice tank to the side if/when you do.

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

Sure, you are right about the color after 16 years old... I was looking spray because is cheaper; I don't need a glossy result, just a beautiful set not too much mixed colors
I agree with your answers, I will to look for a complete used fairing with tank for track and keep the street version

The hammered stuff is easy to find.
Stuff worth having though is a different story!

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

Yessss this project progresses !

In purchase :
- oil (MOTUL Factory Line 100% synthesis), oil filter (oem), air filter (oem), spark plug (NGK cr9e), brake fluid (MOTUL rbf660), brake pads (CL Brakes XBK5+) : new
- steering damper Hyperpro top mount : "used" but new, old reference never mounted
- track fairing WITH a tank : used but not crashed, no paintjob necessary "in emergency"
- Rear shock OEM : used 500 miles (before remove for an ohlins), for 25 dollars it's not a bad deal versus my crappy shock. Someone knows how many pressure is necessary in the shock ? I've heard 6 bars (87 psi), 10 bars (145 psi) it's not the same thing...

News pics ASAP after delivery of parts !

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

I know that's "only" a 750 and an "old" bike, but I'm very exciting !

Some news in the mail box :


And a brand new steering damper, never mounted

Re: My SRAD 750,trackday / Pb with steering damper

Hello buddies,

Some news after a hard day of work
No bad surprises on the bike, happy to do this check up !

But bad surprise with the hyperpro :


When I turn the handlebar on the right it's ok, but when I turn it on the left, the end of the rod of steering damper (the scroll of setting) hurts the fairing support, located at the red cross on my picture. What's the solution ?

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

if you are going track use, ditch that fairing brace as well as the instrument cluster and headlight bracket and use a track oriented fairing bracket like Graves

This is the solution

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-GSX...item3f20f4030c


Message him and I'm sure he will ship to you in France no problem.

Other option is to carefully bend your current stay to clear.

Re: My SRAD 750, for trackday

Just a little advise. If you think about using another gearing. Do not go more than 1 tooth down in the front sprocket, or the chain will come too close to the swingarm. Better to go extra up on the rear sprocket.
Good luck with your SRAD on the track, it is great fun

Here is my ex-SRAD:

This may be the better option as I guess the op will be using race fairings so will need a front subframe anyway.
