First Track Day with The Brutale

Any suggestions for prep?

Also I pulled the low beam and stop light fuses. But when I pull the fuse for the smaller bulb in the headlight I get the battey light on. I guess it has to stay on.

Thanks in Advance

Bike: I take off everything I can, turn signals, tail tidy etc. disconnect headlight, drop tyre pressure (30psi front and rear), up compression damping on the front, check chain tension and give it a good lube.

Me: try to keep off the piss the night before, drink plenty water, get to the track early to get good spot, if my brother is with me we start at opposite positions, go hard and have great day!

I don't bother with the fuses. Just disconnect the headlight directly (i pull off the headlight entirely) and unhook all of the connectors to the rear brake/turn signals. Takes a few minutes and no weird lights come on

You can also pull off the plate holder/turn signals too.... other than that listen to brutale4me above

Bike was made for the track! Have a blast!!

admin, does that deflector do a good job of reducing buffeting on the track?

+10

Also bleed your brakes, some nice fresh blood will help you avoid brake problems, make sure your pads are good too. Decent fitting helmet and riding gear with a good back protector.

There you go. Also get some frame protection not Oggy or R&G frame sliders and if you still have some money left get some engine casing's covers too.
