The footpegs are also from Japan. They feel better than the standard ones to me, but my Dad doesnt like them.
I want to make it into a dedicated bike for track days, because I don't get a chance to ride it much since our new baby arrived, and its too expensive to register and insure if it's only going to be used a few times a year. To do this, I plan to remove all the lights except the brake light. Hopefully I can then use smaller a battery, which I will relocate behind the seat. I will put back on the clip-on handle bars, which I had on before but took off because they were too uncomfortable for day to day use.
I want to put on a half fairing like they used to use on endurance race rs in the early '80s mainly because I like the feeling of tucking in behind a big bulbous wind screen.
All I want to do to the engine is play around with the jetting etc. to get the best out of it on the track. The other stuff I wanted to do,such as change wheel, front fork, breaks etc will have to wait till I become rich, or our new baby gets married and leaves home.
Please e-mail me if any one has advice about making a track day bike.
