Gen2 Setup help

I found this cool site for different settings. And my 07 has factory tune on the suspension never touched. And i weight about 210 is that to much on the stock stuff.
Today i took the bike out and it feels like the ass in has a lot of rebound like its almost to loose. I want to change it.

chances are, most of those settings are not for your weight.

and first thing you need to do is set your sag, static and rider sags. front and rear.

Is there a ball park number to start with when setting the sag??

I resprung mine with ak20s up front and a Penske in the back. Now it is on rails. The only thing I need for more grip is slicks. The suspension is spot on. Getting the sag right can only be done when it is sprung for your weight.

yuppers, I did the same, then set those for me and my habits. I did the slicks after that and needed more stiffening after. I went with an aftermarket fork seal, lasted one day. use oem seals

I did the spring thing with the companies that i bought the other tid bits of suspension from. The 10r is with Traxxion Dynamics with the AK20 and the penske shock. The zx7 is with race tech because of the gold valves that I installed. Both companies have proved themselves with excellent products and customer service.

Dealt with Race Tech before and they seemed ok.. I'll be taking this one through Traxxion Dynamics this time for something different.. Thanks for the 411 guys!
