I'm doing 1&2 at QR actually, apparently its their first time back there in a while . looking forward too it, 3 and 4 I might just have to make the trip down to Phillip island ! would be a great experience i think.
How was your experince with the CSS , did you learn much ?
I loved it. I actually used their 2014 bikes and went to sydney bit pricier but worth it as the track is more involved then the paper clip and if you bin it it's quite cheap. While I get the hype over Philip island I'm a bit hesitant as it's a ballsy circuit and while it requires obvious skill you would be benifit much more from somewhere like eastern creek that has a mixture of corners but without the other technicial problems that come with Philip island such as tyre heat on the right side.

you're right actually! I hadn't even though about that, and looking at it closer now the left 2 cylinders exhaust path is quite alot longer than the right 2 . Im sure these bikes need equal length headers.
Will take it to the local exhaust specialist tomorrow!

Another update!
Thanks bennymx for pointing out the link pipe, i've installed a danmoto one , much nicer to look at

Also put on some gb racing crash protection, techspec grips, attack rearsets and MRA smoke screen

I painted the tank the same colour as the rest of the bike too

Very happy with how the bike looks now compared to the day I picked it up
