first track day with our SS

It's been a relatively long journey from when we got her last fall for use on the track, to finding out about the bad valve guides, leaking tank, etc....

It was sooooo worth the wait! The GT1000 is a hoot on the track but the SS feels way more at home there. In turns it feels settled and solid compared to the GT and helped me feel more comfortable looking further and further through the turns as the day progressed. I didn't mind getting dusted in the straights because I felt confident I could reel most folks in in the turns.

Very happy with the braking performance. I had to get the rear to match the front when I bought the wheels as it just wouldn't have been right. Only running the standard coffin masters with stainless braided lines - nice enough on the road to not need more. really only ever need two fingers for most braking. The rear is a bit better than the standard set-up. All rattle.

This is my 900ss. What a joy to ride and maintain this bike. For anyone thinking of purchasing an older 900, do it. I have absolutely no regrets. I've added a solo seat that I purchased on this forum. Also added a 796M a few weeks ago. Totally hooked

750ss street fighter

Hi All,

New to the forum. I am working on a 750SS that I purchased for my wife last year. She didn't like riding with clip-ons so I am turning it into more of a monster/street fighter. I fabricated a 2 into 1 exhaust, instrument cluster, headlight brackets and a few other parts. Still needs paint but almost done for this year. Thought I would share a few pics and see what everyone thinks. I like it but I'm bias.
