1st TOR run tomorrow but need help. Anyone??
So i would really like to try my first TOR tomorrow, but i want to do a quick check up on my bike, Now i know how to check fluids and lubricate vital parts but there is a few i just cant figure out and i would like to learn like adjust chain tension and check brake pads and such..

So is there anyone local (or not) that is willing to take a few mins. out of their afternoon to help me out on this one??

Ill provide some drinks and some grub. If interested pm me for directions.

Thanks

By the way I live in Issaquah

First of all where do you live - Seattle proper or? Donny (or whoever) will check some basics on your bike before they let you go out anyways. That being said, it's probably a good idea to do a more thorough check yourself. Don't forget tire pressure.

are you doing TOR at Pacific? If I'm sure there will be plenty of people who would help. If my husband is available he might be able to take a look. We're doing TOR both days.

Daniel you're close to me and I'd be happy to help ya but unfortunately I have plans that dominate my evening tonight and most of the day tomorrow. I would say that if nobody comes through for you on here, just do your best and ask someone (Donny) at the ToR booth tomorrow to check things well in advance in case anything needs attention.

The honest truth is that you're not going in to a WMMRA race here... it's ToR which means that your bike just has to be in good working condition - the same basic state of which would make it safe to ride on the street.

Check whatever fluids you can find. Make sure oil drain plug is tight. Check cold tire pressures and make sure you have 50%+ tread. Make sure your chain has some slack in it but not so loose that it can smack your swingarm. Make sure throttle snaps shut, brake pressure is firm, levers work without any snags. Make sure there aren't any loose body parts or other pieces on your bike.

I did my first TOR and my time ever on a tract at the Ridge and that was AMAZING!!! This will be my 2nd TOR. It is soooooooo much fun. Your going to be hooked. I'm saving $ to get a tract suit and do some tract days next year.

Also if you corner work during the race you get FREE TOR

What's up I would help you out but you are a little far,I should be there tomorrow. Look in the owners manual for how much slack you should have in the chain and for everything else just shake it to make sure its not loose and fluids. Say hi I am the short Hispanic guy in a yellow jacket with black and silver gsxr.
