Hello

Just joined to pick up tips for the new(to me) used track bike I just picked up ('2005 GSX-R1000).

Was tracking my Honda 919, but decided I was tearing it up and needed a dedicated track bike.

Looks like whoever built this bike threw on some good parts and some not so good parts. Trying to determine what is what and get it sorted out for it's first track day.

Previous experience: over 3 decades on the street, but hadn't raced (or been on a track) since '95. Did my first track day back this spring and now I can't get enough (again).
