The Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki man has a 30-point advantage over Josh Brookes and aims to extend that, saying his team will bring a better bike to the fight.
“The start of the season has been nearly perfect; I wasn't too upset to lose out to Yamaha in the second race knowing the good results they have had there in the past,” said Byrne.
“We have had a great couple of rounds to start the season and it has been nice to have some 'time off' but at the same time I have used it to train even harder and I am possibly even fitter now than I was at the start of the season. Yes we have had two great rounds, but as a team we certainly haven't been resting on our laurels since Oulton Park.
"We had the pre-season test at Snetterton which was really good and I know some of our rivals have been out on track there recently, but I am sure we can get straight up to speed. I am coming back physically strong, the team have worked hard to give me an even better bike, and I know we will be ready to get back out and push for the results."
