Setup Workshop & Track Time about to removed

Nothing is perfect in life- nothing. But I want to share with you why I am personally a little disappointed in regard one of our programs, the ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’, which is a hell of a opportunity to get a bike dialed in- suggestions on upgrades based on needs- and especially a chance to get up to huge technical issues pointed out. Besides this, it allows the participant to go on the track to feel the difference of a dialed in suspension- or just to have some fun. Here are some stories…

I remember welcoming one of meanwhile thousands of students to our previous ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’ class. He proudly showed to me his ‘new baby’, a used CBR 600 RR. He was just wondering that the bike makes weird noise under hard acceleration and that it doesn’t move as much as it could. We’ve diagnosed that all teeth on the rear sprocket were shredded down by 70%, and that the chain is jumping over under acceleration! Workshop = A+

A other rider has a chain slag which not just damaged the swing arm, but also could cause a crash if the chain would come off and gets stuck. Another one I’ve seen rides a chain which never seen grease, and all links were pointing zick zack. Workshop = A+

A tiny girl on a sportbike rides around with a cracked handlebar. Only a question of time when this thing runs away from her under braking. That her throttle just stays where you let it go didn’t seem to worry her much. The grip slid down and over the bar end, and that caused the stuck. Workshop = A+

But also out there on the street or track I am going, and to meet riders… I’ve seen so many issues. Stuck throttle cables- loose or broken brake levers- rotted tires- worn- squared- or my absolute “favorite”… a aftermarket brake lever which touches the throttle cable housing, so that there is only about 30% of braking power! A Workshop here would be A+

Trust me, with this I truly don’t want to make anyone look bad- but truth and honesty is it what this needs. If I would not- how can I make you see how important a ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’ can be for one?! So no, I’m not making fun on their backs- we actually believe that we’ve saved some lives with this class.

My disappointment here is that I know that this is good for the riders- my main goal. We are always trying to make things like that fun, educational, and efficient for an affordable ticket price. Unfortunately not too many take advantage of it, so that we can’t make this work on our end.  So this will be probably the last time were we offer this program:

Suspension Workshop & Track Time, at Little 99 Raceway on 04/07/2019, 33 spots are left, $99.00

(Includes workshop, track fee, water/snacks, photography, professionals)

Workshop & Track Time going to be rescheduled

Hello Everyone,

I was looking much forward to the Superbike-Coach ‘Workshop & Track Time’ event on 2/19/2017, but I just decided to reschedule (NOT CANCELLED!) due to the weather forecast and floods.

I hope you are on my page and that you see that I do this for YOU guys. I don’t know any other organizer can- or would do this… but Superbike-Coach does! We all need to be team-players at this point. Since I know that some of you have long travels to come see us- or are even victims of the Oroville evacuation… I am convinced to do the right thing here.

So let’s reschedule this event and all your bookings to a other date, which I am announcing ASAP.

Best regards,

Can Akkaya
