mirror removal for trackday

Heading to Blackhawk Farms raceway on friday the 14th and was getting my bike ready for it. here's my ghetto alternative to block off plates.

here' it is:

took some 3/8ths hose and cut up some small pieces
grabbed some washers
some 8x10 metric phillips screws
and painted it all







the fan is there because I'm impatient and wanted them in!















who needs them stinkin block off plates.
Not my ghetto ass!

Blackhawk Farms raceway here I come!

Looks good, but the 600rr has block off plates built in. You just unbolt the mirror at the base mount..

yes it is.
here's a pick from our ride yesterday...




It's my brother's bike.

I just took the tires of the rims of it so he could strip them down and polish them. work in progress. He's going to tape it up to look like Eddie Van Halen's guitar...

sweet. If he doesnt already know, he should check out www.gstwin.com. I'm a moderator over there and I started on a gs500 too. The discussion forum at gstwin is very active and lots of knowledgable people there. Also check out my other site, http://pantablo500.tripod.com/ for more info.

dude, Thanks for the links, I will email them to him directly.

He's been off the saddle for 20years. last time he rode he was t-bone by a car. hasn't ridden since... till now. I've been control riding for him for the last tow weekends in a row. He's coming along Great and with the way I rebuilt the forks and tuned up the bike he's feeling awesome on it.

Thanks again!

Hey, im really close to black hawk farms raceway, and thats where im going for my license next season. Try to remember who your instructor was, if you get a guy named Mark Stiles he's awesome and a good friend of mine. What company are you going through, Vision or someone else. Well I hope you TD goes well man.

Not my ghetto ass!

Here's an idea for everyone...dont bother with block off plates at all, ghetto or bling. Use a zip tie on each side to hold the fairing in place. when done, cut it off and replace the mirrors. voila.

dude, those aren't getto...

racers use the bolts and washers method all the time as well as the zip tie method...

but yeah, like other folks have said for street bodywork, the mirror base is the way to go... ;)

Haha I just took mine off the other day and I went straight for that centre bolt..Worked fine and I don't have any ghetto dealies. I'm surprised you didn't just explore with that middle bolt to see if it could be done or not. I always just try things.
