Linkage or the angle of the shifter lever is definitely somewhere to start but it could be a mechanical issue with the transmission.  I have ridden quite a few R6s and did have an issue with my 14 R6 transmission specifically relating to downshifting.  Mine got worse over time and turned out to be an issue with third gear.  Just something to keep in mind.

Another thing to consider is trying to gear your bike so you don’t need to grab that shift either way mid corner. That way you can get shift, braking and body shift done early. Then more attention to focus Ontario braking, line and getting to WOT ASAP on exit.

I do have the +2 rear sprocket (I'm currently -1 front/stock rear) so Ill be sure to get that on, the plan is to def not downshift before the kink.

I had an older generation R6 in which I found a cheap fix for shifter problems.  For me the shifter travel distance was too far.  The same year R1 had a much shorter shifter arm and fit my bike.  After replacing the arm shifts were much shorter requiring less effort and felt positive.  Fairly inexpensive experiment if you can find a way to shorten the travel distance on either the rearset or clutch end of the cable.

Thank you for the suggestion I'm currently using vortex rearsets (my bike is a 2012) but Id like to try something different for a change. Any specific ones you recommend?

When we are not in the middle of a pandemic PRE does a good job of once the track goes cold offering a place for people to come together and get to know the people you are on track with. Fingers crossed for a return to that some point later on in 2021

Holy thread resurrection Batman!   :doh:

I got tired of the Motion Pro lid leaking and spitting water on my face shield and windscreen so I took a queue from Mr. Ruhe and made my own.

Hi all,

This is a BKS suit that I bought sight unseen as the owner said it was a size 50.  Unfortunately for me (but maybe good for you) it fits more like a 46 or 48.  If you are 5'10"-6'4" and 180-220 lbs I think it will fit you very well.  I am 6'3" and 230 lbs and it fits great height-wise but is too tight across the chest to fit a back protector.

If you haven't heard of BKS before, they are made by hand in England and pricing starts at just over $2000 for a new one.  This suit is gorgeous and it kills me that it doesn't fit.

The suit is fully perforated and has a zip-out liner.  It has T-Pro armor for the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.  The liner was just washed in Woolite and the suit was cleaned completely with Lexol cleaner and then conditioned with Lexol conditioner.  The armor is not installed currently as I took it out for the cleaning/conditioning and had planned to use the suit with Forcefield CE2 wearable armor.  There are two minor blemishes: there is a small tear on the inside liner sleeve (from getting caught on the velcro) and one of the perforations on the back side of the knee has a small tear.  Both are minor and neither affects function.  The suit is ready to go.

I had planned to add patches for knee sliders and had exchanged emails with Barnacle Bill about having that done.  He said it would be less than $100 but he couldn't give an exact quote until he saw the suit.

The suit is located in Charlotte, NC and I am selling it for $350.  I can meet on the north side of Charlotte for a local deal, or ship if buyer covers shipping.  I will also be at VIR in March and will bring the suit if it hasn't sold yet.

Thanks for looking and if you have any questions let me know.

I hope everyone is staying safe. My track days are behind me and I am putting my 2007 Daytona up for sale. Please make an offer, as I am moving soon and would like to sell the bike prior to our move.

Currently in Durham, NC

I bought the bike from a control rider at PRE and rode it for one season (2019).

2007 Triumph Daytona with 18K Mile with an extra engine. While I have the title, I have not registered it, as it is not legal for the street.

1. Full Leo Vince exhaust (pretty sure it's SS and not Ti)
2. Penske shock
3. Traxxion Dynamics Axxion Valve, spring and shaft upgrade in forks
4. Renthal 520 sprockets (front and rear)-start of last season
5. DID ERV3 520 chain-start of last season
6. Lightech rear axle adjusters
7. GB Racing Shark Guard
8. GB Racing Clutch cover
9. GB Racing Frame Sliders (race)
10. GB Racing Fork sliders
11. Woodcraft Stator cover
12. Woodcraft Ignition cover
13. Attack Performance rearsets
14. Motion Pro throttle
15. GPR dampener
16. Vortex clip-ons
17. Lightech keyless gas cap
18. MotoHolders fairing stay
19. Vortex block off plates (at least I think they're Vortex - it's been a while)
20. Triumph Race Support Velocity stacks
21. Triumph Manual Cam Chain tensioner
22. BMC air filter
23. Bazzaz Quickshift
24. Yoyodyne slipper clutch
25. Shorai Battery
26. Sharkskinz bodywork with Andrew Swenson custom paint (not as pretty as it once was)
27. Zero Gravity Corsa Windscreen


Spares:
original motor with ~ 14k on it (valves checked and all good at 12k)
spare Renthal rear sprocket
GB Racing Frame Sliders (street - a little longer)
spare swingarm (one spool broken, most likely can be repaired with a tinesert)
spare radiator (had puncture, patched with JB Weld)
New Triumph clutch basket (funny how it's cheaper to buy as a kit vs. just plates/springs!) and original clutch basket
2 stock shocks
Spare suspension dogbone
Rear brake caliper, reservoir and line
