    Default New track day bike!

    Had the 748R for 4 or 5 seasons now. Bought a 848 cheap last autum and fixed it through the winter.
    Suspension uppgrade, forged wheeels, QS, etc...
    Will look nice side to my 888/1026!
    Cheers!

    i would expect it to be faster than the others, it'll be interesting to see how you find it.

    @Brad

    I believe the bike is, problem is the rider... :-)
    Anyway, the 748R hase done about 10000km on tracks the latest years with only 3 rockers replaced so I thought it was time to either totaly rebuild the engine or build a new (996 or so) or get a new bike.

    Got the 848 for a very fair price but the costs to fix it for track was a bit more than I first thoght of...
    Cheers!

    Gidday!
    This season have not been as I was hoping for.
    Lots of rain (good with a rain bike...) so I have not been rirding the 848 much.
    So far Im still faster on the 748...
    Biggest problem seem to be solved anyway. The CRC racing seat is much higher then stock. So after replacing the seat with another with standard height Im now down on the same lap times as with the 748.
    For a while I was tinking of selling the 848 but now it seem as we can be friends
    Cheers!
