This is the track set up with OZ wheels and racing front and rear fairing. I have standard wheels and standard front and rear fairings for road and once the bike goes back to road trim I'll take some photos for comparison. That'll be in two weeks time.

Well, this is how it looks now and as for the engine this is the bike I am planning on doing the 1060 + Gen2 heads & TBs conversion on my spare engine in case the bike survives this summer. The heads and TBs I have stored already.

Nope. 98dB @ 4500 rpm. But I have refilled them myself. I have noisekillers but haven't seen the point to insert them.

Bloody binned it with full wets in rain... goes to an ugly repair with for the remaining track days and a proper restoration in winter.

Noooo!

Bad luck Ouch

At least you can do a proper fix over winter.

Do you have a heated garage though?

Bad luck...
 
A friend of mine suspected lack of skill... But it is only a suspicion.
 
I have a separate garage that has an air source heat pump. The garage hibernates at 10 C and I can get it up to 16 or more quite fast during winter if I go there to fiddle a bit longer.
 
The bike needs:
 
New clip ons and a footrest. The last one I got at home. The OEM fairings did well with the aid of R&G so they just need a bit of paint. The race front and rear fairings are mullered beyond proper repair but nothing that a quick jesus tape fix would not solve for the next trackday. Both subframes are straight and a spare windscreen I have got, actually two if I remember correctly.
 
Additionally new crash protection on the right side and as the bike hit the wet gravel on the left side when it bounced off from the kerb the left side fairing pushed the oil tank to an engine bolt and got a proper hole in it.
 
Well, I have the original stainless tank, which needs some TIG welding as it weeps a little. A friend of mine will solve that with his TIG.
 
It'll be fine. Just unsure if I will keep the same theme if something else that is simple and flashy comes to my mind. JPS could be one of them but then again I am not fan of black unless really shiny...

Got Imgur working so here's the pictures from last spring. Naturally, since then the bike had a theft attempt and one crash so it looks a tad different for the time being but plastics will be hammered to a proper shape during the winter if time schedule allows it. The engine work goes before that:
