Had some fun today, got the ZX on dyno just to see what it was making. Turns out it's not alot but the pipes / PC are giving it nicer midrange than stock. (seat of pants dyno says more ;)

On a later run it did tweak up to above 160, but the default dynojet map is on the whole ok, though could do with some work.

Also spent over 1hr at race setup specialist getting suspension tuned for fast controlled road riding. He ended up raising the bike and tipped 6mm down on front to give it better cornering. I'll post the setup when I get a copy...

I "tipped" down 6mm as well. I run a Scotts damper, and Pirelli Diablo Corsa III's, and ride only tight twisties with brief occasions in mid triple digits for quick passing. The "dip" made a very noticable ease of turning and holding a line, and had no down side. Just win win.

Hey Fluke how much did the guys at racelab charge for your setup and did it take long for them? As I am looking at getting them to sort out mine for me , as I have heard that they are very professional and great at what they do.

Hey wiz, just 50 quid... took about a hour. In standard 'from factory' trim I found myself having to lean forward on bike to hold a steady line through corners and the bike now runs on rails. Bumps also really upset the bike... now she holds line even when road surface is bad.

I'm no great rider on corners, but initial view is they have done a wonderful job.

They started by measuring sag on front and back wheels off ground, then bike on it's own weight, then measurements with me on it in natural riding position.. they ended up 'raising and tipping forward'..using preload followed by comp, rebound and damping adjustments, sorry thats as technical or accurate as I can descibe. :)

I went there after glowing reviews from another biker... he was right, they deffo seem to know how to setup bikes and are often present at track days to perform setup as bikers come onto track.

I'd love to get my suspension sorted by a pro but everywhere of asked on our little island, noone wants to touch the preload. Looks like I'll have to get some friends to give me a hand doing it myself.
