Suspension set up day...

Well I just got back from spending the entire day at one of my freinds house's that is a local mechanis and racer.

We set the sag on over 30 bikes today, man is it nice when you hvae a motorcycle mechanics house with all of the needed tools to do this and 40 people helping out. We had some grub and soda that all of the girls cooked for us and when people were not out helping with the bikes they were inside playing Tourist Trophey on the PS2.

Nice thing, I used the Sport Rider setting for my 10, I weigh 190 and they were spot on for the sag on my bike. Going to a track day next sunday and going to play with the rebound and compression to see how close they are as well.

hmm, 135lbs compared to the above read of 190lbs. Big diff and prolly a good time to change springs, and fluid wts with your wt green.

W.F.O.ing with style will bring life back into focus

ACtually I am prob going to be even clower with my gear on as I was on the high side of things. I am 185/190 with out gear and around 210 with gear. I am not a ricky racer, this is my first trackday because one of my riding friends has been bugging me to go so I can get a little more confident on the street and gave me a set of tires for the bike so I could get and is hauling my bike up for me as well.
