I certainly like the idea of doing some track days! I will be in Kanasas City this summer and so will be closer to some tracks than Rapid City is, so hopefully.
So a bit of an update after the first day:
-LED headlight flickered on and off, turned out to be a connecter that jiggled loose, easy fix and will check on it from time to time
-realized that a windscreen will be necessary for any higher speeds
-checked the air filter and it is a k&n which is clean and appears to have oil left on it
-pegs were a tad loose and took about 5 mins go get fixed up
-peeled off the poorly done plastidip on the tail, will probably be redone soon
-looking at purchasing ebc sintered pads from moto superstore, I would appreciate advice here! They seem spendy to me, but brakes are pretty important
-Planning to buy frame sliders, amber led strips, wire, and resistors off of Amazon
-need to figure out the front fork seal issue ASAP, no idea on this process yet, so I will be digging around the forum for that info!
-want to get oil and filter and spark plugs changed soon as well so I know that stuff is fresh. Would be nice to do the same with coolant but will probably decide based on how dirty it is
-my memory of adjusting chains tells me it should be fine, but should double check soon with a ruler and the manual since i have no idea how old the chain is.
Attached are some pictures I took tonight in Art Alley in downtown Rapid City.
