Hey Guys, how are you compressing your forks with a strap? I keep trying to do it on the 10, but it's not compressing a lot.
:thumbsup: Super useful!! I wasnt even aware of that kind of thing. I just figured Id have like no brake dive since it was compressed out. Ill watch out for it. I dont get a ton of room to stop though, so well see how much I gotta push it. Thanks!!Be careful using the front brake to stop at the strip, if you hit them to hard your front end has a higher possibility of washing out, and that's not fun at 100+mph
Move to Cali. Weathers great. Laws suck. Ive not ridden about 10 days total since 2012 started. Not gloating, just a fact.:thumbsup: Good luck! I'm jealous too btw...we just got over a foot of snow dumped on us yesterday so it'll be a while before I see any track time. Good thing about it is I've been able to spend the last two days in the garage making some progress on the 10.
The U-soft lasts nearly as long as the regular stealth does. But man does it get sticky with a little burn out. Brock did a write up on his forum about breaking in the U-soft to help prolong its life. He says to do a short, easy burnout to heat it up good. Nothing crazy. Supposedly it helps release the rubber compound molecules and keep it soft.Be careful if you're going to use a hook up on the street. They probably have a softer carcass and is why they are lighter. A softer carcass will move around alot more and be unsafe for the street. I have the shinko stealth (not the u-soft) and it rides great on the street and at the track. Unprepped track and 30 psi and it still wheelies.
