The f4i sucks as a trackbike. Well, its awesome, and so is the banana seat!!!! But:
- there is no leg lock on the bike like RR's have.
- the front end has .68kg springs stock so you HAVE to upgrade the springs and rebound valves at a minimum to actually use the bike.
-The low end is better then RR's so you'll outdrive them from corners until you hit about 80mph at which point there is nothing you can do as they pass you and R6's pass them.
-stock rearsets are way too low and need the plate risers from ebay as well as the feeler stubs removed at a minimum
-no way to use rear spools unless you weld something to the swingarm
The f4i is an amazing streetbike, but for trackwork the RR is leaps and bounds better IMO.
