I thought I saw Spicer made a set for the stock forks, right? If yes that at least means the design work is done and he can cut you one. Is there any benefit to needing to change the offset on the stock FZ?


I'm sure there is another 'incremental' benefit there but it'd need a faster rider than me to realize it. As I understand it the tripples would sharpen those areas where the fz lags behind the r6 handling wise, specifically transitions, turn in and finishing corners. I was gonna go thru Matt when the time comes to get tripples. I think I'm getting close to this platforms nirvana sans fork swap. Also think I'm at club racer x's sweet spot with the motor. Any more and the reliability suffers. It appears to be holding up well so far?

We'll have to get you back on it in Aug so you can compare it's state now to the beta version from 4 years ago. Maybe you can change the class record some. Of course with the new batch of entrants into the class it's a matter of when not if, holy shit.

So the Galespeed wheel w/spacers, Dunlop KR448 spec tire and rotors weighs 23.8lbs. The stock wheel, spacer, rotors and spec Dunlop KR448 weighs 26.8lbs. I'll take 3lbs. Nice.

Should make it even more nimble also, that's a good bit of weight!
