Don't hate because I have 3 bikes right now. And in the other 2's defense they were blueNwhite originally and they had bad owners.

Oh come on, Two are the same make, model, year and purpose. That hardly qualifies as 2

That hadn't trickled over to your thread. That is a thread by thread basis there. Are you declaring your thread as a hate thread?

Got tires mounted on the track spares, front painted black to match the rear, rim tape applied. Since the track spare also has an OEM 525 sprocket, I think I'm going to hold off on the 520 conversion for now.

Went ahead and installed the SpeedoDRD to correct for factory speedometer error so it'll be ready to go after gearing change as well. And installed the pressure sensing banjo for the rear brake line so the pedal will activate the brake light, keeping it street legal though I never touch the rear brake.

You have a good opportunity to try out a different gear ratio when you run a different wheel for the track. Maybe up a tooth or two. I would jump on that.

Get your forks back yet? What kind of work did you end up having done?

I have -1/+2 in 520 ready to go. Thought about getting an OEM tooth rear in 520 so I can have a -1/+2 or -1/+0 to chooose from. Really I could just move the sprocket/cush drive from one wheel to the other and not even have to unbolt the rear sprocket.

Forks should be back soon. He was going to send them back with a friend weekend before last but that didn't work out, so just shipping them. He was racing at Roebling this weekend so probably shipping early this week. Problem was these BPFs are apparently a bit different than some of the others, so he didn't the exact right tool. Could have gotten it done, but he wanted to do it right so had to buy a tool. Getting resprung and revalved and adding the extenders so I can drop the forks in the triples. May do cartridges down the road sometime.

Sweet, bike is going to handle amazing. I know the forks on mine were recently serviced with valves, seals and bushings, but the guy before me was about 30 lbs heavier so I'm thinking I'm going to replace oil and springs. It's a job I should be able to do myself without issues, just need the goodies and time to do it. The list is stacking up and first track day is only about a month out.

I've been trying to collect some "conventional wisdom" on geometry for this bike. Sounds like most 600/750s since at least 2007 or so like to be raised. My JRi should allow for some height in the back; sounds like a lot of guys have been shimming the rear 5mm. Then they raise the front too which will add some trail. I'm tempted to take it to STL to have it all measured since I'm not that confident in figuring out the swingarm angle, etc. on my own. Have to admit with the SV I threw the Penske on the rear and put springs and cartridge emulators on the front and didn't mess with ride height/trail/swingarm angle at all.

I'm going to be stuck at stock ride height and rear shock for this season I think. The rear is proper spring rate for me so I might see about just getting it serviced for now. It will be better than nothing. I'm sure it's years overdue. I think for my current skill level it will be ok. Next year it will need some love I'm sure.

Ha I could have used those last night when doing the chain. One fell perfectly and proceeded to roll to the other side of the garage.

Girlfriend brought the forks Saturday but haven't had a chance for garage time. She and two of my daughters have been visiting over spring break. They're leaving tomorrow though so will probably try to get everything together by the weekend.

Wow man! I thought I was cool doing a lot of general maintenance and ordering some ebay plastics haha. This is next level. Congratulations man. How have the Q3's been? I just ordered me a set. I looked at those brembo MC/Lever sets. Thats a nice penny there. I can't wait until I see what SS lines do for the braking system.

Zero complaints on the street. Of course I'm still getting used to the bike itself after just getting it last summer. But I don't think I could ask anything more of a sporty street tire. My plan is to start out on the Q2s and Q3s for trackdays this year and see if I outride them or not. But I'd have no problem with the Q3s for street use at all.
