Amazed by the power of this bike

So this is the first time i've taken my 2015 S1000rr to the track. While i am in no sense an expert track rider I do like to think i hold my own in Novice lol.

Only mods are a Rapid Bike module and an aftermarket air filter. Pulling into the back straight of PBIR i am completely amazed by how quickly this bike gets moving. Such a great work of art.

Video for a lil eye candy from PBIR. I am still going through my gopro but this is the fastest run i found so far.

Once you redline your bike, and hit 186mph tells what you really think.

How do you like Rapidbike module? Feel the difference? With or without wideband O2 sensor?

His shift light? You can set to to stay on or flash. You can also adjust what RPM it comes on.

I don't think he programmed the shift light, looks set for break in from factory....

Who was the wank you almost butt slammed? Might want to ride with the proper group...

RapidBike is AWESOME. It smoothed out most of the hard shifting from 1st 2 2nd. It is using the stock harness for the O2 sensors. When i get my exhaust i will get their next module and use their sensors.

Yeah my shift light is on factory. To be honest i dont know what a good setting is for it so i tend to ignore it and just listen to the bike.

Since it was my first time at the track i was put into the novice group. Next time ill go to intermediate but i have problems keeping the correct body positioning (hands get numb from too much weight on them). Once i get that down ill make the move.

@the_gooch - I may make it down may 15th but we will see.

The 2013 s1000rr that i got close to was definetely slower than I on the straights but he was faster on the curves. I stayed behind him much of the day to see what lines he was using and I learned a lot from that rider.

You could go back and watch your video to see when you shift.

well good point lol..ill def do that i remember hitting te rev limiter several times for a split second. towards the end of the day i had the sound dialed in so i knew when to shift.

Also, this novice class was HUGE! Most bikes ive ever had in a track day session ever.
