So I finally pulled the trigger and did my 1st track day on my 2007 VFR at CMP in Kershaw,SC. The 1st couple of sessions on the track, I was a complete mess. I was trying to remember and implement hundreds of hours of reading and video watching... all at the same time. Once I settled down, I was able to turn some consistent lap times of 2:20. By the last session, I was actually able to start working on specific things and was a lot more comfortable on the track. I turned a 2:10 lap, which isn't fast in the grand scheme of things, but I don't fell that I left much on the track, with my skill level and the current setup of the bike(pretty sure I was the only one out there with Helibar risers and a tank back ring) As far as the VFR goes, I think it did great for what it is. I had Maxspeed Cycles setup the suspension for me. Of course, there isn't much they could do with it. It was definitely an improvement, but I could still feel the front end plowing in the slow sharp corners and the tail end bouncing around. My plan was to run the VFR in stock form and see what needed to be upgraded to be a competent track day bike, without giving up much streetablity. Here is what I have come up with so far: 1. Brakes: Pretty sure I just wore out the stock pads. They were adaquete, but were starting to make some noises by the last session. I am thinking EBC HH should do it. 2. Suspension: This one is obvious. The front end in particular. Not sure what yet. 3. Gear: Indicator: Pretty obvious. 4. Remove Helibar risers: Great on the street, terrible on the track.
