... to purchase a new bike. A bike for racing. I hope to get some tarmac track time on it this year and race the mountain on it next year. It is a 99 SV650, It aint a RC51 but it should be a good match for my wallet and keep me from binning myself on America's mountain. It already has steel brake lines, crash damage, Ohlins shock, and sliders. Paul with the speedtherapy blog has raced his Suzy on the Isle of Man and given me some advice on tuning them. Any other advice on setting them up or anything at all is much welcome.
