Well, the turd wasn't polished and went gold.
I keep reading about people thinking they need less rideheight shim because they've upped to a 200 tire.
Shimming is quick way of tweaking swingarm angle (anti-squat). Changing nothing else, a bigger tire is less angle and requires more shim.

2012. My thought exactly. Serviced the forks a couple track days ago, no change. 26 front 30 rear sag.
Figured id try 5wt in the rear and see if that helps...but i might be on the aftermarket shock train now.
Wheres a good place to get one of those $600 mark 2 Ohlins mentioned above?

|The Prophet||Sag 25-30mm rear, front 30-40mm. Fluid is probably shot. How many miles on the suspension? Springs should be adequate for your skinny butt. What year bike?|

Ugh. I didnt know ...and probly didn't want to know the good stuff could be had that cheap.
I'm new to the road scene, only 160 lb, but compression front and rear is 1/4 turn from maxed out and still bottoming front/ too soft rear (with min sag #s). Rear rebound is barely cracked open and basically non-existent when hot.
This is going to be an addictive hobby.
So whats wrong with the gen 4 linkage?
Is it because it was designed for 2 up or baggage?
Thanks again for the pointers.

|The Prophet||Check Youtube for Racetech shock service videos. They may not be for your particular shock but it will give you the info needed. Shops usually charge $15-$20 for a nitrogen charge in your shock.|

|LDH||You can still get brand new Ohlins Series 2 TTX-GP shocks for $650. How much are you spending on polishing the turd would be my first question...|
