Nice you got the bike back, gotta be a monster at 200+ on pump gas.

Thats crazy on the chain and guide. I've had my gen 4 apart twice now and those guides always looked good and my chain has been smooth. Think as time went on, stuff would get better.

It's the Japanese phrase for "improvement" or in the manufacturing term: continuous improvement. I work in manufacturing and we refer to this mentality quite often. I thought it would be fitting to have it on my bike as a reminder.

Dude, it's killing me too. Especially since I learned that the first half of my preload adjusment is basically doing nothing as they are right now. KTech Carts are the next big investment...

Or Ohlins, much more data available on it. ;)

I'm seeing that your fork tubes are not any longer but the forks are lowered a ton in the triples, which means the geometry is who knows what.

They are internally lengthened by 20mm, so the tube was raised by that about which (supposedly) puts me at stock front geometry. I want to take it to GMD Computrak to get a chassis measurement session. I donít have the money for that at the moment...
