He knew what he was doing with it alright! Interesting quick shift technique by popping the clutch quickly and not backing off the throttle. Engine sounds good, nice to be able to hear it.

I'll have my Ninja 400 delivered to this track, where I'll be taking weekly lessons from my coach. I've driven 993 Targa and Mitsubishi Evo6 on this track before, but that was at least a decade ago. The Track is 2.5km. long, and the turn @1:20 on Youtube ciip is the most dangerous one. This track is at the infamous Pattaya, almost 200 km. from Bangkok.

Cool, looks like a pretty decent track. Pity it is so far away from BK. My local track is 160Km away and it's length is 2.57km but it has one of the longest back straights in the country! :D
I was trying to see what the guy in the clip got up to on the back straight, 170 ish I think?

What mods do you plan to do to the bike for the track other than the tyres and suspension you mentioned. Clip ons and rear sets? Lighter Lithium battery? Remove the fender/plate holder?
You said you like quiet so will you keep the original pipe? Would be a good weight saving to ditch it.

The rider looks to easily pass all of the competition on the track. He is showing some good riding skills and power of the ninja 400. I like the wheelies at the end of the ride! Awesome video!

I would like to know how long the main straightaway is in comparison to his top speed before the turn (what I saw was 173kph, from screen shot)?

Looking at this map of the 2.4km long Bira circuit I estimate it to be no more than 500m long if that.

I just noticed this, but at 42 seconds in the video, it's obvious that it cuts to another lap but same location on the track ... the clouds move! I'm guessing it was to show a full boil lap that wasn't achievable with random riders out and about

Lol he has the honking problem as well. I just rolled over 1000 miles, only happened to me twice at my recent track day. Seems to just fix itself eventually.

Like he said..what is up with this honking problem ? I've only had it happen twice on aggressive acceleration/shifting. Will it really go away or is there a dealer fix for this?

I love it! Wish we had something like that here.
