Does the rear feel really really rock hard with that setup? Like riding a skateboard through the pits? I'm interested in putting the attack link in my bike, however I rode one with it and I could not get the bike to transfer weight to the rear wheel. It was just too stiff.
Ahh. U shouldnt base your opinion on the rear link on how my bike was set-up that day. I took your suggestions & removed alot of compression damping. It did make a difference.
Plus some doh - head(me) had the link installed the wrong way
Not only that. Im 30 lbs heavier then U.
It would be nice to find out if we can buy the electric adjusters & control box for our Ohlins now. (as U asked earlier)
Is it the same shock with the added electronics? Has any body talked to Dan Kyle on this?
Spot on - the rear is rock hard, but i think it has more to do with the spring. I think the spring is a bit too stiff for my weight. But then again, i got it sprung for my weight by Ohlins USA and i have a feeling they put the stiffer spring in there for use with the stock linkage. My Static sag is only 23mm with all the preload taken out (preload was taken between lifting the rear into the air and me on the bike)
I am going to try a lighter spring for sure, but i did not have any issue with weight transfer, the bike was a lot better than with the stock setup.
23 mm sounds good, doesnt it? What spring? Whats your weight? Many different opinions on springs for these litre bikes.
Going off subject a little. There are 4 of us racing G4s up here. All 4 are fast. Fireman is the fastest.(Exp SBK Champ) His springs would be set-up soft by some peoples standards. Yet he has no problems at all controlling that bike. Having said that. I believe its all the rider. Given time on any of the other G4s he would ride them as fast as his own. (maybe faster
