Default First track day on F3

Well, this is what I have to say... Second session of my first day on track, one week after owning the F3, and I knocked 5 seconds off my lap time compared to the 848.

Everything stock except:

Cut the passenger seat back 1" so that I can get my ass further back)
GP Shifting (so no quickshift anymore)
190 rear tire
Added 4.5 turns to the front pre-load, rebound is set at 1/4 turn out from full in. Compression is 3/4 out.
Rear rebound set at 1 3/4 out and compression at 1 1/2 out

Tell me this bike doesn't kick ass.

Looks really good.... and your leathers match... LOL! Where did you get your bodywork from? How did the 190 rear effect your corner exit?

Looks great Corran.
Why can you not use the quick-shifter any longer, is it because the strain gauge could not be reconfigured from "push"to "pull" set-up ?

Bodywork is stock...I just have white duct tape over the front light.

The 190 tire I really liked. A little faster into the turn, though I was concerned with tucking the front end - never happened - because of the effective shortened trail. The 190 Bridgestone slicks added 8mm to the rear diameter and 4mm to the front, so the effective change in geometry was 4mm lifted tail, and 1mm shortened trail. When I went back to 180 street tires I missed the more lively feel of the 190.

You might want to think about that a bit more.
