Star School Bike Prep! Updates w/pics

So wanting to hit a few track days I had already done all the usual stuff to my '05 ZX6R when I purchased it last year. GPR Damper, Woodcraft case cover, Arata rearsets, Frame and swing arm sliders, track gearing. But now with Jason Pridmore's 2 day Star School looming at the end of may I jerked all the street stuff off and have started painting up some track bodywork.

I am real excited to have a race ready bike in the garage again, but it is my only bike at the moment and it sure will suck swapping back after the weekend is done. Maybe I can hit one more track day before I have to swap back! I'll post pic's when I get 'er done!

Been there, crashed that, Fixed again, sold it!

Wow! What fun!

Highly recommeded school for anyone who is serious about track days or club racing! These guys are great and you cannot believe the knowledge, insight, and experience they are eager to share with you. I saw them telling novice riders secrets I had dicovered over ten years of riding and learning the hard way. I learned things I would have never figured out on my own in another ten years...

Sorry the pics are after the fact but time constraints kept me packing and prepping until right before I left for the school in Hallett OKlahoma.

SMORE

BTW, Metzler Racetech tires are awesome! They still look great after 2 whole days of darkies and general track abuse!
