Short video of the exhaust sound. Sorry I didn't rev it. This is with the baffles in, they come out for the track but just too rude for the road.

Some more track day pictures from Sepang at the weekend. Also got to ride a friends F3 675 but heavily modded with some WSS parts and full Ohlins etc.
Very different engine characteristic (obviously), had to rethink every gear and trying to keep her in the power band, great fun though.

Always been a fan of the painted front fender rather than plain black or CF so got my hands on a 2017 RC fender

On goes the SBK swingarm, then the bike goes straight to Sepang for a track day this weekend.

Ready to rock. Slighter longer and with extra welding it seems.

Never really added up the total cost to be honest. The basic F4RR came very cheap as it was sold off from a guy who had about 10 bikes, all exotic (Panigale SL, H2R, F4RR etc etc) and with only 600km on it over 4 years!. Probably got the bike at around 60% of its actual value.
I would take a guess at around $60,000 SGD for the total build, so equates to around 35K in the UK.

Not bad in my opinion as bikes are expensive here in Singapore, much more that the UK (I am from the UK) so $60k Sing Dollar would just about get you a base Panigale V4 here for example.

And yes, bare metal on the swingarm, not really an issue here with the constant 30c heat and no salt being spread around, well I hope so!

I do miss the UK for the rides down to the South of France In the sunshine, but the other 340 days of the year I don't miss it.

So the swingarm went on and both bikes went to the track.
The F3 was amazing as expected but thats for the other thread.

Surprisingly the F4 felt just as amazing, the swingarm seemed to make a massive difference. It is longer by possibly 20-30mm, much more substantial welding and seems to sit a little lower so changed the geometry a bit.
Eitherway the bike was very easy to turn, easier than before and can put all the power down with less prone to wheelies.
Very happy with the investment that I originally thought would just be a mainly cosmetic upgrade, which I do think it looks trick IMO.
