which brand springs are you using, i got a ohilins rear used from a memeber here. i was told by a friend my last track day i should change both front and rear that just the rear is not going to help me to much... been looking into it but the ohlins cartridge are around 1100 i cant seem to find any cheaper alternative... is there any other reliable brand avalible
Blew my motor so I am not ridding a damb thing right now
I'm using racetech springs; had the rear sag set at 35mm for street. The front I did not get resprung yet.
The gen III has a soft rear spring, so the bike sits like a chopper and squats on acceleration so the first thing would be to change the rear spring.
I got this line from another memeber; "Your ecpectations should also be realistic in upgrading the springs. If you are not ridding hard now your not going to notice anything".
For me I was ridding so hard the bike would wobble like had low air pressure or something as I went through high speed sweepers. Also the rear wheel would hop around and not stay planted if the road got rough going through turns/sweepers.
After the spring install the bike was handling like it was on rails and felt planted... I'm way faster than a lot of guys I ride with. The guys who ride faster are on the edge...
Again, change the rear spring and see how that goes first. It's very inexpensive est. $175 total with install. ($99 spring 1 hour labor) Spring and labor may have changed since I've had mine done few years ago.
Tires help a lot too. I'm running Michelin 2CT set at 36 psi front 38 psi rear.
