I Ride: Panigale 1199 R
Track day setup for Intermediate level????

Hey Guys,
I took my bike to the track last weekend and also Monday too and I had one of the best days of my life! Also I have a guy from ohlins suspension to set my bike for the track. What a difference!

I stared as Novice and the instructor told me that I can go to the Intermediate next time.

Ok... I already paid for the next time. I know the bike needs some adjustments:

1: Change Coolant ( what do you recommend? It will avoid my warranty?

2: Put Silicone on the dragon plug and oil fill cap... ( any info on that? )

Please let me know any advice for my 3rd track day
Thanks!:

1) Water (with water wetter). Check with org/track. Most have specific rules about what is allowed. But water is most efficient for heat exchange in your motor.

2) Drain plug? (never heard of a dragon plug). Safety wire it and the oil filler and you'll be good to go. And if you don't know how to drill bolts and filler plugs for safety wire, get someone to show you. It's easy and you'll need to be able to do it if you plan on regularly doing track days.

They way the bike is as stock is really bad on the track...you have no front feeling. After the full adjustment, yes the bike is like a knife!

Kinda far way from you bro.... Michigan.
