you're right rapid- funny thing is the big boxer actually looks pretty small in that pic. Got tons of suprised squidys at the track trying to chase me down... only got passed once all day riding beginner/superstreet- this guy on an R6 at the end of the straight. would've been a different story if I were riding expert class though- those guys fly!!! That gsxr750 in the first pic hits 150+ on the straight and 115 into the carusel! most I could manage was around 115 or 120 before lotsa brakes real quick and about 90 into the carusel- guess thats what 137rwhp-400lb bike- and being a CCS racer can do for ya...
That said though don't let anyone tell ya the S ain't a good track bike. Many riders were impressed w/the beemer and how fast it was lappin'! tons of fun and the diablo corsas didn't push all day until the last time out, when the 110 degree heat took it's toll. completely snapped my peg feeler off on right foot peg and touched valve cover lightly but only cause I was trying. when riding hard there's plenty of cornering clearance.

track days are money well spent- oh yeah- when you bring your bike to tech for inspection, they give you a small number plate for the day and by chance I got number 69! Go Nicky!

Most excellent report.
I did a track day yesterday on my 1100s, what a gas, but saw limits for the bike, weight and the stocker style diablos were not perfection, but real good.
This is firsrt, keep rpeorting, goodluck at the track.
The 1100s was way more fun that my set gsxr1000, but thats me.

Buck, Give us your thoughts on the new wheels and how they affected your track performance. Your initial comments were great but I was hoping for bit more after your track day. I've heard it said that one ounce of unsprung weight is equivelant to one pound at 70 mph. After riding at speed do you concur? PVM's have gotta make one helluva difference over the stockers!

What mslandes said. Thanks in advance for that.

'Looking at your leathers, I noticed no back protector nor tail bone pad. Is that so, or are my 30/70's failing me?

Ride safely.

Best,

rapid- stockers' bud! mounted right up!

Don- true- no protectors- your 70/30's are fine.

mslandes- heluva difference is a good way to put it. Turn-over is vastly improved, making the entire bike feel as if it lost weight. It is very flickable now but still has that controlled feeling from the telelever. It really lets your brain focus on more of the important stuff like throttle control and tire feedback. It is a confidence booster and obviously, confidence is very important, if not most important.
I have yet to do a precise weight comparison between the two but soon will post numbers. I'm not trying to 'sell' pvm wheels, but I gurantee a positive reaction to the feel over stock.
big time

out of time- more later-
bucky-

Buck,
So all i need to do is order for the specific application and they come complete?
EMA seemd real confident when i talkrd to them.
Im ready, and il have a spare set of stock rims with nicley scrubbed diablos for that bad experience on a road trip with the triasler and truck,most excellent.

you said it burn- those 10spokes are the sicknastiest of the lot-

the dustcover and spacer from the stock rim work but don't mount precisely the same as stock setup. I thought my front wasn't going to fit the night I got my rims cause by the time we got the rotors and tires mounted we all had about 7-8 beers and I'm sure you can imagine what its like working with three wasted 'mechanics' in a 90F one car garage. It was late anyway and a test ride woulda been a little sketchy...got up had some coffee and had the little bastard mounted in ten minutes.

BTW how much cash do you want I put up for the real deal schmoke?

rock'nroll f$$kers!!!!!!!

Thanks for the report Buck....your comments were very similar to my good friend who recently went to PVM's on his Gixer 1000. He too said that turn in was vastly improved...flet like the bike actually got faster (if you can imagine that on a GSXR1000!!??!)....huge improvmement in the "flickability" of the bike...made steering effortless! Now after your feedback, on top of his, in that the difference is so evident, I am getting convinced that this is the next modification for my S.
