What exactly? Well, you were the one talking about meeting the standards of cafe racers, so I kind of figured there would be a cafe and maybe jukebox and road involved...
I have no illusion re power / weight ratio vs a modern sportbike (or even a retro where that was a goal). Commercial construction and modern water cooled engine design are amazingly good, and it began life as a flipping parts bin designed SHAFT DRIVE bike. But again, you compared vs cafe racers. Those don't usually have plastics or water cooling (or efi or ABS or traction control). Maybe you have something appropriately vintage?
I dunno about dragging knee, but it's pretty easy to get the pegs or exhaust to touch the ground - its not like it lost the ability to lean because I built a heavy front end with steep rake. If you're paying for track time, I'd be happy to get laughed at. Assuming tech allows it on in the first place (damn unlikely, but who knows).
I might have some 'just for fun" vids from indoor flat track and / or ice track in a couple months... I'll see what I can do about that knee for yah.
But again, out of respect to OP, maybe better to put such things in a different thread. My intro one is fine by me, it's a designated hater target anyhow.
