Re: Swapping body work for track days
For your first track day I'd just tape up the lights like nearly everybody else does. Not everybody really digs track days, no sense in buying a bunch of track-only parts until you decide whether you want to stick with it or not. You probably will love it, I know I do. But my point is, your stock bike won't be holding you back at all on your first track day.
I don't know if you already own all the gear or not, but I'd rather spend money on my own leathers and boots before I got brake lines and levers. The loaner gear will get you through the day, but I hate to imagine how many people have worn that same suit and it may not have been cleaned in a year. I know how hot it gets down in DFW or Houston in the summer time, being in leathers in that kind of heat must be like having your balls in a crockpot. I know I'd be sweating like a whore in church, can't even imagine the level of funk inside those old suits.
