The main objective was to test the new aero, break in my new suit, and just find my fun-zone. I don’t have any data for Buttonwillow, so I left the lap timer off and just spun some laps for my first two sessions.

The new front fairing/windscreen combo worked flawlessly, and I was able to ride without worry. The new gen.3 suit by Mithos fit like second skin, and looked incredible!  Matches my bike perfectly! 

For the next sessions it was game on and I was able to work my way up to speed and started to find my mojo again.

Thank goodness!

.Lookin really good Paul. Good to see you back in action on your FZ. Good luck this season.

Finally got the fairing stay 2.0 done!  Eliminated contact with front fender, and made provision for a steering damper (required for many racing orgs).

Been a while since I posted...life events have got me busy, haha.

I did fulfill a lifelong dream though...

Here was the set up at MotoAmerica for Laguna Seca:

Thanks!  Out of 20, LoL.  Actually, it was out of 28 I think tbh.

 

I'm pretty happy.  I improved every session on a track I've only been to twice before.  I didn't finish last, and I didn't finish lower than where I started - and I beat a rival of mine from the club racing days haha.

I'm getting the heads ported and polished and getting the throttle bodies bored out for some performance upgrade. You can drop crazy money into your bike if you want to. 

I considered trading her for a FZ/MT 09-10. But most of what I see are pretty much stock, no tail tidy, no slip on, etc. I've done these upgrades to mine already. 

She came with a PC V that I've had tuned and a free dyno job at a bike night here in town. With the P&P, and bored throttle body I could pick up maybe 10 hp or so.
