banditg2000 Posted September 3, 2005 Report Share Posted September 3, 2005 I am gathering as much info about racing as possible. I have just invested a considerable amount of money and free time getting ready to get on the track. I have a few questions for those of you out there that are more experienced than myself. 1. I weight 220lbs and I'm 6'0 tall. I am in decent shape but most of the guys that I see succeeding look half my size. I will obviously try to lose some pounds but my question is, I need to set my suspension on my 03 CBR600RR to prepare for track days in the future. I believe it is set up pretty good right now for the street, there isn't much sag and it never feels loose. Could anyone give me an idea of how it should be set before I make a costly mistake. Can someone tell me how to look at this bike and tell how soft or firm it is set? I understand what rebound, preload and compression is but how to apply them to me and my bike is still a mystery for me. 2. I live near Houston Texas so I assume Texas World Speedway is the closest I have to learning on a track. I am willing to pay the money and commit the time to a good instructor like Keith. HOW DO I GET STARTED? WHAT DO I NEED? WHAT ARE THE RULES? I am just wondering about some of YOUR experiences of how all of you experienced riders got started so I can minimize the learning curve. I understand that most of these questions have been asked before but if no one minds please humor me. A message from Keith would be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks and happy riding, Grant Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
