Hey guys,

Ive got a track bike down here in australia and I do a fair few track days at the island. this question is aimed at people who have owned a first gen track bike and know a bit about suspension and setting it up.

Ive got a front cartridge kit and a rear revalved shock with a spring for my wieght on the bike along with a ride hieght nut that raises the back a fair bit as well.. I was down at the track yesterday and after banging my head on the wall trying to set a 190 55 profile rear tyre up, I finally decided to give the 180 55 rear a go. The result was like night and day. the bike decided to hold its line, turn in like I ment to and felt great.

Any idea how to set up so its the same way on a 190 55 rear as well?

Cheers!
