When people say these bikes are really just race bikes for the street, they often don't know how correct they are. I have been running mine at the track since I picked it up new in '07, have around 20,000 track miles on it right now and have not had one problem. With proper maintenance these things will last forever.
If I had to do it all over again, the first "track" modification I would have done would have been a slipper clutch. Sure the light weight OZ wheels changed the way the bike handled, along with the Öhlins and the Brembo parts, but the Yoyodyne slipper allowed me to enjoy the track more than anything else.
