How To Build A Racebike!

Ten Kate Racing Products Support

 

How to build a race bike:

 

Stage 1

How to prepare a street bike for track day use!


Race Gear

No racing without safe racing gear. Ten Kate has a specialized clothing shop where you can find all motorcycle gear you’ll need at the track!

Bodywork

Replace the OEM bodywork for racing bodywork and save time with quick fasteners.

Footrest set

Use adjustable footrest kits with the possibility to use racing shifting pattern and a quickshifter to shift without closing your throttle.

Brake system

Upgrade your brakes using TKRP steel brake lines, racing brake fluid and carbon or sinter brake pads. Brake pads are usually lock wired with special retaining pins.

Safety

On most trackdays it is obligated to use locking wire on all the engine oil drain plugs, brake caliper bolds and brake pad locker pins.

Tyre / pressure

Invest in a tyre pressure gauge. The use of tyre warmers is extending tyre life and prevents crashing due to cold tyres. Remember: 1 crash easily pays 1 set of tyre warmers!

Suspension Upgrade

To improve lap times you need to corner faster in a safe way. Therefore it is very important to improve the chassis handling by upgrading your suspension. Our racing suspension components are specially developed for racing. They increase the damping curves and the maximum spring forces.

Engine Tuning

Increase your engine performance by using a racing air filter and a racing exhaust system. To get maximum advantage it is possible to fine tune your mapping using an additional Fi/Ign (ECU) unit.

Stage 2

Sports Line. Things are getting more and more professional. You would like to go faster!


Suspension Upgrade

We recommend the high-end closed cartridge front fork kits and the full competition shocks with hydraulic preload adjuster. TKRP supplies these components including a base setting. This allows you to take advantage from the beginning!

You could also invest a little in yourself and follow one of the TKRP suspension training programs in our own training center.

Engine Tuning

Use an air filter with racing inlet trumpets and a full racing system to increase airflow to your engine. A better airflow means more power! Adjust your mapping and electronics using the manufacturer FIM electronic kit.

Ten Kate also offers a special power-up stage 1 kit with racing cams to increase engine performance. While increasing the performance, you will need to increase cooling capacity using an additional water or oil cooler.

Electronics

Quick shifter kits and advanced traction control kits make an advanced racing bike easier to control. All electronic systems and parts are available online!

Data Logging

To analyze how to go faster, there is a possibility to use relatively simple AIM data systems. These systems offer a very good balance between price and possibilities. The software is also free to download. We even offer winter training courses in our TKRP training center.

Stage 3

Racing Line. Get access to the best Ten Kate high-end racing line for ultimate performance!



Suspension Upgrade

Use the MotoGP/WSBK high performance racing forks, triple clamps and clip-on’s. We also recommend special racing swingarm’s with different linkages to find maximum side grip and acceleration.

Engine Tuning

The TKRP engine tuners are world famous for building fast and reliable engines with very smooth power delivery. Available are TKRP World Superbike engine tuning kits with stage 2 CNC (port flowed) cylinder heads, Cosworth racing cams and a Cosworth cam train. TKRP engines are prepared with a close ratio racing gearbox and a slipper clutch.

Maximum engine performance also means you need to pay attention to the engine temperatures. Ten Kate prefers to use separate water and oil cooler systems. The Febur full water radiator, including the oil cooler and adaptor, guarantees a save engine temperature even during hot summertime weather conditions.

Electronics

Let the mapping & other electronics be controlled by high-end ECU platforms from HRC, Pectell, Motec, or Magnetti Marelli. Usually these kits include a high advanced data system from Cosworth, AIM or 2D.
