Track 2ndry Wet tire/wheel setup

Hey guys couple questions in regard to having a 2ndry wheel setup for the track so the I can run wets.

**Bike is track only '16 959, 2ndry + primary wheels will be the same make/model. Primary brake/rotor setup is new also but will be getting the majority of use obviously. Current drive train setup is fairly new, 12 track days.**

-If the 2ndry wheel setup has rotors (new + same as type as primary) will there be any issue with brake pads that are set (worn in) to a primary rotor set?

-Essentially same question in regard to rear sprocket, if 2ndry wheel set has dedicated rear sprocket will there be any issue going back and forth in regard to the drive train ?

My thoughts are that since things are mostly new that swapping back and forth shouldn't be too much of an issue, just wanted to float this past some forum members that may have specific experience with this to avoid any pitfalls, thanks in advance.

Switching wheel-effect on brakes

I switch tires at the front of my 1199 often, having two sets just in case the tire guys doesn't show up on track day and I need a new tire. I don't think about the brakes when I go out with a new tire, I just take it easy on the new tire for a couple of laps to see how it feels. As soon as I am comfortable with the tire it is business as usual. If the brakes are different, I haven't noticed. If you never use your wets except every 2 years and your wet rotors are markedly different in their life span than the dries, it might make more of a difference.

I change brake pads frequently and don't let them go to bear minimum. When I put in a new set of pads, pretty much the same process-gradually build up brake effort over a couple of laps, don't go into turn one full bore with usual brake point. Rear brake is not an issue for the 1199 as it is mounted on the swing arm hub.

My experience after 4 seasons on the Panigale. YMMV

^^What he said.^
Look for consistency among components, same type of rotors, same wheel mass, etc. to minimize differences between wheel sets.
