Thanks for the suggestions and kind words everyone, Hopefully I can get it done before my first track day of the year... Barber April 28th!!!! Just ordered some Ca-cycleworks coils and plug wires and have a lot of carb tuning to do.

She is now TRACK READY!!!

The paint went on well, although not without complications... Apparently Rustolium professional paint isn't compatible with Rustolium Gloss Enamel, had to repaint all of it after the paint developed a wrinkle finish 5 minutes after spraying all the pieces... Left the clear coat off this time, went with a good medium cutting compound from Mcguires that works well enough.

So here is the rundown:
Rebuilt valved and sprung 916 front end
999 Radial front brake master
998 clutch master
XRAC sintered front brake pads
Michelin power one competition compound tires
99+ rear shock (raised the ride height about an inch, suspension guy said its perfect)
Sharkskins front fairing without headlight cutout
Ca-cycleworks coils (yet to be installed)
39mm FCR's
5.5" rear wheel
underslung rear brake
New front and rear brake and clutch lines in blue
Woodcraft rear sets

Full Ohlins and possibly a 1000DS engine are in the works for next year

When I bought it 7 years ago:


After years of neglect and an inspiration to have a dedicated track bike:

I welcome any critiques, suggestions or maybe some good deals on extra parts you guys have laying around!

Big fun!
Looks great!
I'm impressed by the fit of those cans and how they get closer together at the back. Looks cool. Freakin' loud, I'll bet. BTW, still got those polished cans laying around?
I may have to install the red grips I've had for years.
Looks like you need a longer shift rod. Downshifts might be a problem.

sofadriver: I do still have the chrome stain tune low mounts, the last time I heard them on the bike they had a bit of a rasp so I think they need rebuilt? Make me an offer if your interested... The shift rod on the bike is adjustable and everything works like butter, had to adjust the length to move the lever down a bit so its more comfortable with my track gear on though...

Subaru: If your referring to the rear brake... The OEM CR rear set up has the brake caliper isolated to the swing arm, with that setup when you applied the rear brake it actually forces the swing arm down changing the suspension geometry while braking.. with it braced on the engine via the locating rod it applies no forces to the swing arm and does not effect the bike when the rear brake is applied... Im not trail braking yet, but I assume this will make it easier.

Thumbs up Nice!

James, you've done a very nice job! Just don't chuck her down on the track like I did right after the first time I painted mine ! Scroll down the link to "Turn signal covers." You might want to consider them. Easy to glass in and really cleans up the front. Pic attached.

Sofadriver, he has Woodcraft rearsets. Very comfy and good fit for normal size feet. He may have to raise the shift lever a little to make it easier to get his toe under it and more room underneath for upshifting while leaned over. I'd also recommend repositioning the arm on the gear shift shaft ("gearchange control lever") down a bit more so it has a better angle for downshifts.

P.S. Be careful not to spill any gas on your paint if you don't clear coat it. I had to go to a friend who does automotive clear coat because I found out that rattle can clear coat (Krylon) wasn't gasoline proof.

yep. that's what I was referring to (just didn't know the proper name for it).
looks like it will need a longer rod to get the right geometry.
