Hey! Nice job! How come you only ran 1/8th and not a 1/4 mile? I'm new to the track stuff, so please be kind. I am going to do a track school this summer. My goal is to gain enough experience and confidence to join a club, and start amateur road racing. I think I will start by going to some races, and volunteering to do pit work and flag duty. I'm not too sure what classes are available to race in here in Canada, so meeting some racers will definitely help. Do you think there would be a 250cc class for adults? I don't want to ruin the racing for kids, or look like a moron out there! Anyways, nice run on the bike.

Hey CDN, check out NESBA.com, or WERA.com, or Google "roadrace schools." Best advice I have, is to go to as many races as you can; even as a spectator, and visit the pits between the races. Most of the riders are genuinely nice guys; they used to be just like you. There's no substitute for face time with the people you want to run with. Not sure if the old yamaha TZ250's are still popular across the border? Good luck!

Got it. I was just wondering. Thanks. Do you have pics of your bike on here some where? I'd like to see it.

Thanks for the pics! I have a 2005 ZX6R (636cc). My bike is completely stock, except the looks. I noticed that you have done quite a bit of modifying to your bike, with the aftermarket exhaust, power commander and such. If you were in my position, with a stock bike, would you still make all the same changes? What gave you the most performance gains?

P.S. Don't forget to vote for the bike of the month for March!

yes ive did alot of mods to my bike for as power gains & looks but i have to say the aftermarket full exhaust gave me the most gain 2nd would be the pc with the custom dyno tune, the 05-06 636's are great bikes with better suspension than the 1st gen 636's, only poroblem i didnt like about the 05-06 636's is that they are notorious for 2nd gear going out but if i was you i would start modin that baby, start with the free mods 1st and go from there...
