Yup, 599 ccs of screaming horsepower Very Happy        

The forks are kinda stock - the PO put in racetech springs and gold valves. The rear shock is completely stock though. He did about 1,500 miles of track days on it, so it should be plenty fine for my skill level for now!

The 500 was a lot of fun, and did really well on the track. I only really rode it a couple sessions at Chuckwalla, but it handled well and the power was nice and smooth. I put in my extra fox shock and sonic springs, and the PO had put on woodcraft clipons and custom rearsets, so the riding position was pretty aggressive. The thing I didn't like about it was it had 16" wheels with sport demons, which were pretty good, but I didn't trust them enough to really push it. I didn't really like the brakes either. The PO had swapped a front end from a late 80's ZX-6, so it had dual brake disks, but it didn't have the feel of my 250, Ducati, or even my v-strom. Overall, a decent track bike though!
