I don't mean to offer additional advice especially after the illustrious Mr Moss but when you change pads. Press pads all the way pack in calipers. Pads as wide as possible. Mount and torque calipers. Pump up brakes same thing. The Roll back on the seals pulls pads back from stop a certain amount based on where they stop not Middle of travel. His way absolutely assures it but you are going to notice no difference in properly maintained calipers and braking system the way I am offering and it is less cumbersome and faster. Who has all day to dick around with their bike let's ride. Also Gould is correct prior to all the other junk make sure your forks are aligned and not binding. Then bearings cause the wheel is out eh.

Steve Gould and I talked about this one night and we were talking about all equipment. Trailers haul rigs bikes etc

Bikes first. We both figured that track bikes get hammered 10 times worse than a street bike. Even an abused street bike. So if you want it to function optimally then you have to really crush the maintenance. Sure 5000 between a oil change on a street bike when you consider if it’s 5k or 4 months the 4 months get here before 5k. I would never go 4 months and 5k on a track bike. No way you are on the limiter as much on the street. Or push as hard. If you ride as hard on the street my condolences to your family
I am sure they will miss you. Key to
Maintenance. Get a
Log book and keep track of miles and time.
Put a schedule together  and then follow it and the items you refresh like
Religion. You will have a bike that is consistent and one you can be confident on. If half your attention is on the shitty tire you want to get the rest of the day on or that little oil leak from the side cover. Can you really focus on learning and advancing your skills? I say no some say yes but most of those guys also have a day ending mechanical at least once during the year so.....
your Motorcycle is part of your safety equipment if maintained and prepared properly. No different than boots gloves and a helmet. If you think of it that way you will take the little
Maintenance things serious. Steve is right 1 year on the track is a lot on these bikes if you don’t care for them.

Guys are fast cheap and do a great job. I love George and Charlie over at Pit Bull they are super solid but damn that coating just does not last in the humid south. Stuff got powdery after less than a year.
Think I am going to take TRS Hooks in as well. The counting they used is thin but durable. First thing I did was accidentally slam
One of the TRS into a work bench. Not a scuff and coating on the lifter mount surface freaked me out but it’s also thin and did not bind on the parts. Can’t wait to see the R6 Wheels going blue. Figured this me to
Do bearings while they are out WTF plus SV had one set of Grey one set of black wheels so had to PC the grey to black. It’s all about
Color coordination. I wore Garanimals as a kid so.......

Since I am new to track riding. As of last season so learning what some of the control riders do for maintenance will be great!! it is crazy that y’all turn a ton of laps all day so the bikes have to be maintained like crazy. I am looking forward to this.

Dang, John - I REALLY like that trailer in the link you shared!

So what's the benefit to buying a cargo type trailer that's outfitted the "same" as a toy hauler?

I couldn't possibly care less about aesthetics - I want something that will last a LONG time...

I'm going to ask you SO many questions throughout this

Seriously, though - a thread like this will help folks who are *fairly* new to wrenching on their own bikes immensely.  :thumbup:
