Thank you man!
I will try my first trackday in Norway in the beginning of July. After that trackday I know if i have to continue with new parts or not.
Will probably try a 190/55 tyre in the rear before adding rear sets

This is the website where you can find the jack-up-kit.

That is really cool that one small mod makes that much difference in the way the bike feels. What's your review on them now that you've gotten to ride for a while? Did you go 25mm? Would you go higher? They sell them up to 45mm now.

AB-M currently has a 50% off sale on their HP4 style rear-sets. With these my engine case / belly-pan plastics and kickstand scrapes before my foot pegs. As with all most footrests, they are much shorter than stock though, and it does take time to get used to it.

Also, the 2014 and up 4th gen has a different rear linkage geometric than the 2010-2013 3rd gen (or all Ninja 1000 which uses 3rd gen linkage), If you mount 3rd gen linkage in 4th gen swingarm it raises the bike up 25mm, if you mount 4th gen linkage in 3rd gen it lowers the bike 25mm.
