Pre-season Testing - Stock 600

Post by Auld Twister » Thu Mar 22, 2012 6:11 am

Tim's first outing on his new ZX6R went very well at Mallory Park yesterday, 21st March, as we went through the settings and adjusted handlebars, footrests etc. By the second session Tim was lapping consistently in the 54.5's on old tyres and without "pushing".

The bike reacted superbly to the smallest changes and Tim looked as if he had never been off the bike. (The last time he had ridden was October 2011)

Next stop is Snetterton, for the official BSB test which will give us some valuable track time on the new 300 layout.

Snetterton went very well apart from too much "backing in" which we'll have a look at before the season opener at Brands.
The weather was superb, (forgotten what the sun looked like), and we got through pretty much all we wanted to. Apart from a spring change, we never touched the front. Played around with the rear shock just because we wanted too and it realy is a very responsive bit of kit.
Consistently over a second quicker that last years best lap times, so all is good.
Next up is Brands..on Easter weekend..
