Z H2 Track Day
on: November 24, 2020, 06:32:54 PM
Did a track day at Jennings GP. Overall an entertaining ride, but the biggest thing this bike needs is ground clearance (rearsets) followed by an improved shock.

You beat me to it. I have one Saturday in Austin with 65% chance of rain :172: :172: :172:


.. just went and watched the video fNg awesome dude. The bike sounds phenomenal inhaling those bikes on the straight both times. it says a little something about the Z if not your riding ability.
I was jealous of your dry track..

Awesome!  :762:
Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.

Ride a bike on track is always an exciting experience! For the ground clearance, I'm very close to install some modified adjustable pegs. I'll show you the final result very soon. Unfortunately I did not find yet an aftermarket pair of pegs, so I had to work a little on something else.

Please do share! Iíve been reaching out to companies to inquire about future offerings but so far there have been no plans.

Iíve also wondered if aftermarket H2SX rearsets will fit. I know frame is different from ours but possibly the rearset holes line up?

@Excel: A picture is worth a thousand words, in this case a website link. It was easy, I purchased the following on Amazon, https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B07S8PKPNL/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This is the link to the italian page, should be easy to find the US one.
As you can see, the kit is composed by a new foldable support. The support is holed, and threaded on the hole a small connecting rod links the support to the peg.
So remove the original ones and install these ones. I had to grind just a few the supports, to have the original pin fitting perfectly.
Once done, I adjusted the pegs to the highest position, but I measured the distance from the ground adn saw I did not gain pretty anything. But the solution was there: I waiting a friend having a machining workshop, to fabricate a new longer connecting rod. I made a trial by a wooden connecting rod, to have better idea on new dimensions. Definitive metal parts should be ready within this weeks, but Covid is complicating even simplest things. As soon as I have it ready, I'll post pictures.
