I Ride: 15R 16R
15R On It's Way To The Track

So the 15R I recently acquired is going to be my dedicated trackbike.
Odometer is at 1207 miles and I haven't ridden her. I don't think I'll even bother plating her.

Any mods I do will be strictly to make her what I think is a better performing bike for me. More power is not something I'm worried about right now. One thing I've found I like is the DP race seat. It sets my short 5'7" self higher but gives a better fit to the tank and bars. So that went on today.

The carbon windscreen will be replaced with the clear one, and the NRC front and rear signals replaced by the DP block offs.
When I pull the fairings to replace the screen, the evap canister and the flapper motor will be removed and the flapper safety wired.

This will be the initial mods and I'll be ordering the block off plug kits soon.

So here are the pics to start the project.

Thanks. I should be doing the initial work next Sunday then hope for nice weather to be at the track on May 14 so Barry can do my suspension baseline and give it an initial trial on the track during the WMRRA lunch hour.

If you are going to add an oil catch belly pan, let us know if you end up finding
one which will fit under the standard bodywork without deleting fan units etc.

I've gone dp bodywork for mine but have avoided the belly pan issue so far. I need to
sort it this season as I intend to do the occasional race. Not wanting to remove fans etc if
at all possible.

I'll let you know if I do. On my friends 1299 he used the Armourbodies glass. I believe he had removed the fan before the glass ever arrived so no idea if it would work.
