How do you prepare your Brutale for the track?

Did some searching but didnt see anything like this. Maybe there is, if so link please!

Ive got my first track day on the Brutale coming up this Monday.... looking for suggestions and tips on everything really, but mainly looking for bike setup info. Things like removing headlight, front turn signals, etc etc.

Thanks!

I removed license plate holder and mirrors. Front turn signals would be recommended too. If you have anything to replace headlight, it is good to do it since it's so fragile(and costly). Remove passenger rearsets too.

The most important thing is some kind of crash bungs and protection of crankcases, left and right.


But if you have the means, buy an F4 for the track.

Hi Sik,

When I take my Brutale to trackdays all I do is remove the fender eliminator (blinkers and number plate holder), tape up the headlight lense and remove the rear view mirrors.

I leave the passenger pegs off all the time.

I also firm up the dampening at both ends.

Dave.

Removing the headlight assembly may not be pretty, but it is easy and protects about $500 worth of stuff from possible damage in a spill.

Frame and axle sliders, yank the turn signals and mirrors...go have some fun.

Oh yeah...tires (get pressure recommendations from others using similar tires)...and


Have fun!!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

There are a few threads on this but, really in 15 minutes or less you can remove all the lights and other danglies.
The only real disadvantage I felt it ever had at the track is the handlebars instead of clipons, didn't let me hang off as much as I would have liked.

Great - thanks guys!

Ive been riding it on the street for a while with no mirrors, license plate, or rear signals (LOL), so tomorrow I will remove the headlight and front signals, and give everything a once over. I have front and rear axle sliders and motor mount sliders. Ill post some pics tomorrow.

Haven't picked mine up yet, but it will going to the track very soon. I do what the others have suggested, strip as much off as much as possible. As for sliders, I always make a set for front wheels too.
