Crazy deal you snagged there. I see that you were at Jennings with your R1, are you racing WERA southeast? And def get your stuff looked at by Mike, I've never seen the forks jacked up like that on any ZX10 in the paddock ever. On my K-tech 20DDS cartridges they add an extra 5-10mm of travel over stock (can't remember exactly) and we're running 510mm of fork height from the top of the lower triple clamp to the center of the axle (triple is flush with the fork caps). On the rear the ktech shock is 314mm plus the stock spacer.
Lanister and neonmarine like this.

Yes I've competed at a couple WERA events in 2016. Figured out that I wasn't fast enough to fight for the podium, so I took last year off the improve my riding. I thought about entering the 2018 season, however I think I'll keep going to trackdays and achieve some lap time goals at Road Atlanta, Jennings and Roabling before entering again.

Mike has worked on my Ohlins forks that the R1 uses and I loved the results. The K-tech shock is basically as short as it can be right now. I'm pulling the forks/shock so Mike can swap springs this weekend. I'll get him to set the length and we'll go from there.

Thanks for sharing those number by the way, I know racers tend to be tight-lipped about suspension setups. Much appreciated!

I need to find that K-Teck knob holder that mounts in the passenger foot peg location.
Hey Von it's part number 270-630-001. It's not something that is usually stocked in NY but can be easily ordered. If you need any more info let me know.
