TDH,
The file attached is Stock VS Stock with Dunlop Slick Tires. (Moto America Spec Tires)
The previous post I made was a standard bike with the Dunlop slicks tires to validate the info posted by Lenny.
I believe these numbers to be extremely accurate. In addition to the basic geometry data these files contain other critical pieces of the puzzle. (Kinda cool to check out)

Thanks Chuck! Ended up running my bike all day on the Dyno with that cat eliminator. Just getting rid of the cat and sticking your pipe on there gained about 15HP all by itself without changing anything in the ECU. We ended up just tweaking the stock map and ended up with 194.4HP (dynojet numbers) on pump gas. I hope I'll be able to hang onto it. :)

Back from the dead!

So, whats the major consensus? Whats the popular fix for you guys? Swap the steering collars with Kit parts? Add shims to the rear shock? Flip the swingarm pivot (on 2016 bikes)?

I'd like to see whats happened in the last 2 years...

On a Superstock spec bike where u canít change the steering collars with kit parts Iíve found the best setup to be 312-313mm shock length, flush to 4mm showing on the forks depending on track. Wheelbase need to be kept near 600mm, if u go too much shorter itíll shake its head everywhere and too long it wonít finish a turn. I like to run the front rebound closed off more then some guys to keep the front lower from midcorner on and that has fixed the earlier issues I had with the stock forks and the bike not turning.
