modifications for track bike

I have a 05' that is for the track. I have put on race bodywork, frame sliders, safety wiring, sterring stabalizer, sprockets, and a pipe & im putting on new brake cables and pads. I was wondering what modifications everyone else has done to there bike to make it a race bike?

I'd say you're there if you want to have a great time and improve your skills. Depending on how serious you are and what class you run in there is basically no end once the mods start. To remain supersport legal for CCS you could still re-work your forks, replace your OEM shock, and have a little head work done to up the compression and improve valve operation. It all depends on how much $ you want to spend and what you intend to achieve. I recommend taking it slow and bulding up a good supply of spares. Fuel, entry fees, and tires add up fast.

In addition to things mentioned, I found a PCIII really helped to smooth out my '03. The key to riding fast is riding smooth.

track time is the most important thing you could do, then suspension. i personally really hate the stock rearsets also (they always moved when i was moving my body from one side of the bike to the other). you sound like you are on the right track though......good luck with your racing$$$$$$$$$$$$
