Finally got her prepped--sans paint, no time. Just got the bodywork yesterday and I have to teach race school on Tuesday.

For those curious, I'm using PP-Tuning rearsets, fully customizable, very trick stuff. They're '3D' model is every cooler, but they weren't ready in time so I'm using the standard adjustable. Fed-Ex guy should be momentarily with my frame sliders.

The SharkSkinz bodywork fits like glove (as expected). Unusual parts when race prepping this bike is that the ram air tubes stay connected to the bodywork when you take it off. Actually wraps around the radiator overflow as well.

As mentioned before, I had to relocate the voltage regulartor in order to find a place for the shock resevoir:

Front Marvic wheels aren't available yet so I'm just gonna run the stock rims for the first weekend (next week).

Other items on there include:

GP Suspension 25mm SBK fork cartidges
Ti-Force exhaust
WoodCraft Rearsets
WoodCraft Casecover (left side not available yet)
WoodCraft rearstand spools
Sprint damper
Vesrah SRJL-17 brake pads
Sprocket Specialists 520 sprockets 16x43
DID ERV2 520 chain

I took it for a quick ride around the block, first time I got to ride her. 2 miles and I was grinning ear to ear. 3 more days and I can't freakin wait to hit the track.


I'll add my race numbers when I get to the track (not sure if they're gonna make me add some white background). Hopefully I'll have it painted before the May event.

Gotta give it up to the boys in Japan for listening to the factory racers before and during the K5's development to make this bike what it is today. It is a pure point and click race machine and it will make your job a lot easier. Keep us up to date with your results and how it works for you compared to the older design.


You've got the best machine to race with this year. Now don't disappoint with any last place or DNF's.


Have fun Adam!

No engine break in? just gonna take it to the track and run it? Are you running a PC with that pipe? When will it see a dyno?
Good luck, hope to see you up there.
