    2021 Track days

    Just wanted a thread to share track day experiences with the group. I got out last week for season opener.
    Changes over winter where ktech cartridges and Nitron race shock. Big upgrade over stock

    Gear ratio - 1 front +2 rear. Slight improvement for the circuit. Still just making 6th on straight

     Rsc19 master cylinder. Compared last year racechrono and has gains and my braking point is later now

    Trying to improve my body position, finally getting left knee down on a few corners, still working on getting more corner angle.

    Had couple fun sessions chasing R6 race bike.

    Brilliant stuff. Looks like a good track to boot as well.

    Korea International Circuit, it held F1 race back in 2015. The quality is top notch, and safe.

    Can you share more about your experience with the Brembo RCS19? How was the install? Did you need additional parts such as brake lines etc? How has your braking changed? Better feel? better power? ETC. Did you upgrade the calipers?

    Hello SwiftTone
    Install will require new brake lines from master cylinder to abs pump if you are using stock handle bars. I would guess line is around 4cm short, you would need to get actual measurements before ordering. I installed heli bars and reduced bar length as well as lifted positioning which allowed me to use stock line.
    Braking power has improved, deeper in travel and comes on quicker. ABS off you can feel more improved power more so then with ABS on. Biggest gains where on brake fade. Before installing at end of the session I could feel brake lever getting soft. I actually stopped once for brakes to cool. I flushed fluid and did abs cycle with gs-911 to see if that was the issue , but still had similar problems. With rsc19 I have not felt any fade. Similar pads and fluid type. 5.1 motul.

    Calipers are on my list, probably go with brembro m4. For these the lines will need to be changed.
    I will probably order a slightly longer brake line for master cylinder at same time as I want to move bars out slightly to help my arm fatigue.
    I'm running EBC FA630HH pads now

    My next step are to go full floating rotors and  EBC EPFA630HH pads along other changes I've been planning which will help with braking. I'll post video on my YouTube channel when I get them completed.
    I've got alot of weight to slow down, 110kg. Currently I can brake close to the sports bikes, it comes down to more practice and later braking points. With the stock master I would not be as aggressive at end of the session.
     If you are experiencing any fade then I would definitely recommend the change.
