Really fun to read about your build and progress.
What brand of fairings are you using? That tank cover looks really good.

We generally wont go any higher than 190 on the oil level, usually we're floating around the 200ish mark.
I've tried different bypass settings but i find the best setting is either fully closed or middle 8 clicks.

I run between 6-8 turns of preload on the front with the 10.5/11, i did start off with 10.5/10.5 and i was using 12-14turns but at that time i had a better feeling with the harder spring and less preload. I haven't tested more airgap on my current forks just a friends but it is something i plan to try if i can get some testing time in.

Now that i have a base setup that i know i can always go back to for raceday i will experimenet more with different spring rates & airgaps. The practice seesion during the race weekend are very short at 15min and you really only get to try one setup per session, so most of the actual testing needs to be done on open trackdays. Problem is is theyre hasn't been many open trackdays that have been dry this year so its always been a rush to find the right setup.
