All foot pegs covered and side stands removed and bike should be fine for track.

Basically no metal that can contact track in the event of a crash.

Hope this helps.

brown13
26th March 2008, 17:16
Thanks.

it started of my ur bike...:Punk: but if you compare my $2800 polini to a daytona that is around $200 you can see nobody starts off on a euro bike,my bike isnt the most expensive minimto around.....try $6000 for a gp3......:love: the presedent on the minimoto club has 2........:shit:

brown13
26th March 2008, 18:18
shit.
You can get a second hand 1000cc bike for 6000. or a new 250.
How much difference is there between riding a polini and daytona?

daytona 2
26th March 2008, 18:27
it like comparing a toyota to a ferriari............no offence my polini is the base model and it has around 5 horse power and a daytona has 2.5 horse power polini's have realy nice tires and the whole bikes frame is aluminium so it cannt rust plus the are made in italy and never break down:yes: ill be bringing my daytona and my polini so you can have a sit on the polini and give it a good rev:first: ive got some spare stuff you can put on ur daytona to boost up the power aswell:yes:

brown13
27th March 2008, 06:44

the polini website has pics of the gp5. thats a good looking bike.
:rolleyes:

daytona 2
27th March 2008, 06:48

brown13
27th March 2008, 18:26
$800, good deal.
Just found out rugbys starting on the 5th so might be late.:doh:

daytona 2
27th March 2008, 19:04
damm rugby starts on the 5th:doh: i might just miss that game.........:oi-grr:yes an air filter would work on your bike as it has an air box already...on trade me they have lots of after market ones that give ur bike a slight increase of power.........i have a spare after market air filter that i took of my daytona and replaced with a foam one {like a pitt bike one}that you could have
