Nice track bikes :peace: Does anyone have a source of inexpensive track fairings for a 1996 yzf600?, I just bought it for $100 to make it a track bike, I have basically cleaned it up, and added some missing parts, it's a work in progress,


Trying to keeps to costs as low as possible, my bike uses all the original fairing, I just used fiberglass to fill in the holes (head lights, blinkers etc), even the tail is all original with hand laid fiberglass to make it into a race tail. Only problem with this is it probably weighs a little more than a full set of race glass and it takes a lot of time to do it.

Would love to get a full set of race fairing when I can but shipping to Au is almost as much as buying the fairing, so it gets expensive.

Mine is no where near as pretty as yours, but our Vintage 7 rules are a bit looser.

The WERA V7 rules and AMA 90's ss/sbk (600/1000) classes that I run have a 1996 model cutoff but allow for "superbike" mods. Basically any technology that you can prove existed prior to 1997 is allowed including Radial masters, monobloc style calipers and wave rotors. We have to run period correct fairings but chassis mods are pretty loose.

I run all of the above braking improvements as well as a YZF1000 swingarm and 5.5" rear wheel.



We can make mods that were available at the time but we are also restricted to using components off the same size bike. If I replaced my swingarm with one off a YZF1000 I would then have to enter it in the larger capacity class and race against YZF750's and 1000's.

Gotcha.

Are you allowed to modify stock parts?

On my YZF I was surprised to discover that when running 180 sized slicks (5.5" gsxr 1100 wheel) the swing arm would noticeably flex. I was considering welding up a brace similar to a 750 swingarm but decided to go with the 1000 swingarm when one came available.

We can modify stock parts and many frames are strengthened (especially the older tubular framed bikes) and I am pretty sure I am allowed to strengthen the original swing arm but definitely not allowed to relocate any of it's mounting points etc.

It's all fairly strict, but it does keep the costs down for everyone.

The big money is in the period 5 unlimited class and those bikes are more expensive to run than modern superbikes.

Thought I would provide an update on my race YZF600R.
Inspired by the 60th Anniversary of Yamaha this year I ordered a new set of race fairings and painted them up like this.
Got it finished just in time for the Barry Sheene Festival of Speed earlier this year in Sydney and very proud to come away with 1st in class and even got photos with Kevin Schwantz at the presentations.

My personal best so far is a low 1:47 around the original GP circuit at Eastern Creek.
I think the bike is capable of getting into the 1:45's and that is what I am aiming for after spending a little time doing some coaching.
