2006 750 track bike question.

My new to me track bike is stock except for a slip on and Power Commander. The sag is set properly. I'm not new to track days, but I'm still a 3rd gear momentum rider and I'm sure not pushing this bike to it's limits. Having said all that are there any "must haves" for a 2006 GSX-R 750 track day bike?

Re: 2006 750 track bike question.

I bought one as a salvage and built it up beginning of the year

Things I found were suspension needed a freshen up and Revalve. My money would be on this first thing

Braided lines and a decent master cylinder if you enjoy stopping consistently without fading. Ebc GPFAX are a good fast pace long lasting pad

Removing the valve in the headers, a decent can and map (I run a bazaz setup) can really clean the mid and give a few extra ponies

Changing gearing to -1+2 gets it more lively and easier to keep with the thou's on bigger tracks... Atleast initially

They seem to have an appetite for either reg/recs or generators...I'm not sure which one but 06-07 I'm told do this and mines one of them

Not much else I can say. Power is all above 10k, really feels good upto just a bit over 14k for mine atleast

Just make sure you get suspension setup. I'm 9.5nm ktech fronts and thicker oil. Forget gap but without spending loads it works well for oem as a top end fast pack track rider

Re: 2006 750 track bike question.

Nice looking bike! I should have mentioned the suspension is fresh, it has braided lines and everything else you need to run in the intermediate class, the front calipers and master cylinder have been rebuilt, and it's getting a new stator and/or reg (they haven't torn into it yet so we don't know which is the problem).

Re: 2006 750 track bike question.

I recommend crash protection, first. Except frame sliders... if you lowside into the grass, the slider may flip the bike. Next, suspension. After that, replace what you "need" to when you notice it holding you back. Getting brake fade at the end of the session? New pads. Throttle twist is too large? Put on an R6 throttle tube. etc...

It has frame and axle sliders, and case guards. I think a 1/4 throttle will be my first mod. It's as simple as an R6 throttle tube, what years fit?

Your bike already has a 1/4 turn throttle tube if it is stock. The 06-16 R6 tube is 1/6 turn which is quicker. As for fitment, it probably won't fit right away. I had to dremmel a little on my K6 and my K9 when when i swapped. You might also have to use a coaxing to get the cables over it, too. I had to take a nut off of my adjuster at the throttle body once.

R6 throttle tube ordered. The rest of my money will be for track days and expendables.
