To those running them on the gen 4, what offsets are you using?
You will probably find you want to experiment anyway. I'm not sure there is a "magic" number for offset, different riding styles, and setups = different numbers.I guess nobody has a set? I ordered mine with the -/+ 2mm eccentrics so I guess I'll figure it out.
Ok well this gives me some idea of what to look for after making adjustments and what direction to go. I'm using robby moto clamps. I don't know what offset they start at but I atleast have an idea on which direction to head depending on how the bike feels.You will probably find you want to experiment anyway.

FWIW, Attacks are usually 30mm offset with 0 bushings. So your + -2mm will give you a choice of 28mm or 32mm. I don't know what OEM/standard offset is for a Gen4 (Japanese seemingly loved 26mm for years but have come around more lately). 32mm offset will be quicker/lighter turning than 28mm, generally at the expense of less "feel". Moving the forks forward 32mm shortens trail number, 28mm lengthens trail (from 0 offset).
These guysWhat other companies have adjustable triple clamps for the gen 4 aside from Attack Racing? They're the only ones I've come across since 2011.
Have you asked Dan Kyle? As I understand it, his linkage design is quite different from the other ones on the market and requires some spring and valving changes on the shock to function best typically. He's a wealth of suspension knowledge and would likely be the person to get you a baseline the best.I'm going to be using a ktech shock with the Kyle racing linkage and I'm not sure on wheelbase yet and I'm open to suggestions. I'm sure my tuner will have an idea but I like to know as much info going into things as possible.
I'm fairly sure there's some sort of relationship between Dan Kyle and John Cornwell as far as the linkage goes. My tuner knows Cornwell and is trying to contact him for the details. He's overseas working with Ohlins so I think he's been a bit of a challenge to get ahold of. My tuner also knows the guy who's setup a few Gen 4's for racing up here so we should be pretty close when it comes to the initial setup. If we fail to get ahold of Cornwell I won't hesitate to call Dan Kyle, were 3 weeks away from my first race so if there's no new info by tomorrow I'll be picking up the phone.Have you asked Dan Kyle?

Not sure the relationship, either LDH works or is sponsored by Kyle I believe and can likely get you a ton of info as well.
Not a problem, I spent a bit of time trying to figure out my options and I'm happy to share my findings.Ah... I see. Thanks for those links sir.
