    bike 2002 GSX-R600 Track Bike $1400

    This bike was purchased as a non-runner and had been sitting in the previous owners heated garage for 8 years. He was the second owner and crashed the bike on the road in Virginia. After crashing the bike, he turned it into a track bike and used it often until moving to this area. I purchased the bike to try to convince friends to join me at the track and to use as a hot spare in case I downed my current track bike. The bike needed some work to get it running and make it safe, the biggest issue was the fuel tank and fuel system as the previous owner left race gas in it for 8 years and it essentially corroded everything. The following has been done to the bike: Fuel tank replaced Fuel sending unit replaced Fuel pump replaced Fuel pressure regulator replaced All fuel system related o-rings and seals replaced Fuel rail disassembled and cleaned Fuel injectors disassembled, cleaned, tested Rear brake master cylinder was replaced Front and rear brake fluid flushed and bled New mobil1 racing 4t oil and filter Flushed cooling system New radiator cap Battery New high strength o-ring chain (not installed) The bike is essentially stock except for the Vortex rear sets ($400 new) and upgraded front springs but in its stock form it is over 100hp so it will have no problem keeping up with any newer bike on the track. The bike is fuel injected and has dual throttle bodies so it is very responsive and involves less maintenance than a carbureted bike. Everything works as it should but you will want to replace the tires as they are 8 year old track tires and are rock hard. Honestly, you should replace the tires on any bike you plan to take to the track unless they are new. The bike has been low sided a time or two so the fairings are not pretty but they are serviceable. Bike is straight, runs, drives, and stops. I have not personally had this on the track or on the road as it is not street legal and the tires and dangerous. Asking $1400

    Weather permitting, I will be there. Last year they cancelled the April session.

    Has anyone done the Lean Race School? I am looking for a bit more info than they have on their site and figured some of you may have tried it. I ride middle of the pack in intermediate so I am probably not competitive enough to race but thought it might be interesting to try out the school. Also, it says it is all Advanced but I think that is speaking to your bike setup and not necessarily your skill level.

    Added a few other track days to @ludwb675 list. This list is everything near me (Findlay, Ohio) at a track I want to try this year. This is not an all inclusive list but I figured others could use the compiled information. Summer Schedule.pdf

    Typical Track Day Q&A

    Looking for some tire information. I have been to 5 track days at Mid-O and no place else. I see a guy there with a trailer full of tires and the mounting equipment. I assume he sells tires or he will mount your tires for a fee. What type of tires is he selling? What is the cost compared to buying online like STG and getting them mounted locally? Is this typical to all tracks? What other work can I get done at the track such as suspension adjustment? Is there websites for the folks that do this work? sorry if this is in the thread earlier but I breezed through and didn’t see much on track services.

    Last I checked it was up but you had to search through the calendar on their website. They revamped their website and it is pretty bad. The size of the webpage changes with their scrolling bar at the top of the page so if you are on a phone, it is useless. If you are on a computer, it is really annoying. The page size changes every 3-5 seconds.

    I heard Mid-Ohio has some kind of Black Friday special where you can get a good deal on track time. Can anyone give me info on that? I couldn’t find anything on their website.

    Mid-Ohio 9/17

    Looks like a lot of forecasts changed for the better. Fog has been added until 8am and I suspect the dew will be heavy on the track for a while.

    Mid-Ohio 9/17

    I plan on being there. Looks like today’s rain is starting to bleed into Tuesday’s forecast. Hopefully we get a dry day.

    Mid-Ohio Track Day 9/11

    I did not end up going but it looked like it would have cleared and potentially dried out early. I rescheduled for 9/18 and we will see how that goes. Seems there has been a chance of rain for most of the track days this year.

    Mid-Ohio Track Day 9/11

    I had off work tomorrow to head to Mid-O but with this rain and drizzle, it looks like it may be a bit wet. Anybody live close and have a good feel for how it will be tomorrow?

    Mid-O Cert - WTB

    I am also looking to purchase a cert if someone has one to sell. I am not trying to jack your thread What but it looks like you got the cert you were looking for and I didn’t want to clog up the forum with more cert requests. I am trying to go 9/11 and 9/18.

    Mid-Ohio Track Day 9-3-18 (Labor Day)

    That was a great day of riding, couldn’t have been more than 30 people there. In novice, I was the only person with my instructor most of the time. My tent is the green one in the background. The guy next to me with the Suzuki wrecked pretty hard in front of me doing leap frog. I still haven’t met up with any of you but in novice, I don’t get much time to mingle.

    New to the track

    I just picked up a track bike hoping to get my first track days under my belt this year. I have traditionally ridden cruisers and old Honda CB’s but from what I read, the novice group should work out great. I plan to be there May 15th and 16th. Is anyone else planning to be there on those days? I can’t seem to convince anyone else I ride with to get on the track. I plan to bring an enclosed trailer, a cooler, and a generator based off of the suggestions I read here.
