Thanks, Dan.

I have some re-measuring to do.

Now that is a good question, when he gets done with Mid Ohio, that will be the first question I ask.

I will make them up in any size/color he would like... I will also send him all he needs/can give away/use.... lol :)

Sounds like you do not believe they are using 1098R motors?

I believe you, I just didn't know they could get up that high with no work done to them. I'm impressed and wonder how much work it would take to get them near the corse bikes, which I've been told is very possible. I might be forced into riding a 1098R next season so its just interesting thats all...

thanks again for the info!

They have done work to the motors, pistons, cams, exhaust, ECU. And race gas. Not good race gas, but still race gas.


From a post on page 2

"No, Larry's bike is not Bayliss's bike from last year.
Larry has a 1098RS, this is a factory built bike that is sold to "Customers" any Racers that has a record can purchase one.

Larry's bike did come with two motors that were Bayliss motors, but they were not able to use them in AMA due to some of the parts taht were inside. Both of these motors are for sale.

Larry's team build the motors he races on.

They are basicly 1098R motors with different Cams, pistons, and may have some other parts in them, I have forgotten what Larry told me.


The AMA rules are more restrictive, one of the big differences are the forks, in WSB, they use Ohlins SuperBike Forks, in AMA, they have to use the stock forks, but they can change out the internals."

170-200 horsepower, few people can really use that kind of power and acceleration. Especially, when you factor in braking and suspension set-up to accomodate the forces that come into play. It's down right awesome!!!

AAAHH Dangit .. wish I'd known about this a week ago, I would have taken Friday and Monday off work to make it out this weekend.

This thread needs some track day photos now! Midwest NESBA region is in a long 6 week dry spell right now and they get Larry Pegram in their region, what the hell! :)

Might sound simplistic, but what rear sets does he use?

I am trying to find some that will get my knees up into the tank a little better. I am 6'1" and my knees don't even touch the tank...

Great thread BTW!

I was at a track day oat VIR on monday and was Larry was there and gave us a good talk about the track and we had some open questions.. Seemed a really nice guy and had time for everyone. Although he (like the rest of us) was a bit drenched in sweat after coming off the track in 100f's. :)

I've not been a follower of the AMA stuff as I'm english and have no TV to follow it. Tend to just stick with watching Motogp and WSB/BSB online. Still it was awesome to listen and get tips about the track from one of the best. 8-)

I'll certainly get up to VIR this weekend and show my support!

i had some interesting conversations with some of the Pegram Racing sponsors/crew at VIR over the past few weeks. One topic that came up was the taction control that is used on the standard R and the one Larry used on the race bike. The standard R has a traction control that is not sophistocated enough (for lack of a better term) to keep up in racing conditions. But the Corse version is much more sophistocated in racing conditions at the higher leverls. Dan, what do you know about these differences.

It was also interesting to see some of the really trick bits that are in support of the racing litterally and figuratively. The Ti stands, the frame stands are really cool. These bits came out of the paddock box when they were changing sprockets during practice at Cornerspeed last week. What else lurkes inside the pieces parts box ??????
