Can anyone think of any extra maintence I should consider when I do occasional track days? For example; frequency of fluid changes, bearings, break pads. I'm on a stock SVS with new D207s being broken in.
I work for Duke Energy (formerly Westcoast Energy) doing compressor station/gas processing plant design and construction management work. It's a pretty good job and I get to play with 30,000hp jet engines/gas turbines.thefury said:what area of mech. engineering are you involved with?
Would this be of any use for everyday city riding?Flag R6 said:so regarding the antifreeze to water change, you really should do it as water has much better heat transfer properties than antifreeze, so this change should keep your bike from getting to hot even in spirited track riding. If you do it though make sure to use distilled water. You can get it at any grocery store.
The only way it would be of use is if you were riding faster than you should on the road. The antifreeze that is mixed with your bike normally has other good properties that water doesn't. Mainly it should be corrosion resistant, as I'm sure you know water isn't. With the track bike the water shouldn't be left in for weeks after the track day.Dafnip said:

Sweet. I thought you might be in the HVACR industry. You're advice has been useful, thanks.Flag R6 said:

No, mine is the red one in the BCbikes section. think the silver one in the buy and sell is a Japanese import from Atlas. If it's the same one I saw last year, it's pretty beat up. It looks better in the picture, not sure though. My SRX is a 1986 stock Canadian version that's got 6000kms.eg_hybrid said:thefury, is that your silver srx6 in the buysell?
If so, it looks super mint.
Singles are bad ass man.
