Suspension Setup

In my efforts to educate myself and get the bike dialed in for my individual style of riding I've done alot of reading and listening to a few friends that do alot of track riding. I found this site that has some pretty good info , just thought it may help some folks out.

You haven't really ridden your 10 until the suspension has been setup by a professional. Ride or truck your bike to the next track day and have it balanced and setup. In Cali most of the tuners that are with the respective track day providers charge $20.00 for a proper balancing and setup or $40 if you are savvy enough to ride and give them useful feedback on the bikes handling after they baseline it. Either way the track settings will be to stiff for the street so they may need to be dialed back for a street rider.
