Interesting question.... Honestly, I set it whenever it is convenient and have never thought of it. I would like to know also because I don't think it has ever been brought up before on the forum.

The sag mus be 30mm in front and rear and you must do it with all equipment. About the tank, I would do with half tank, because full tank and empty tank you will be only a few moments in track.

+1 It's probably splitting hairs but we don't tend to ride around totally full or on reserve that much of the time.

05 ZX10r "the Mongrel": GP Suspension rebuilt forks, LE Penske double shock, 05-06 ZX6rr shock linkage, Brembo RCS MC, Nissin calipers (best mod for this bike!!!), Attack rearsets, Motion Pro Revolver throttle kit, ASV clutch lever, Champs sliders, smoked Zero Grav DB, Ti caliper bolts, CF fender, Renthal grips, Speedo healer, Maviryk MDA123 batt, Supersprox +3 520, That's it..... For now
