Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

Thunderhill was awesome. But my chain is finished lol it's so tight now in a couple spots.

Also talked to Dave moss about my suspension he said to leave the springs and valves alone. He said the rear and the forks need to be refreshed and he said to have a suspension shop make a 15mm spacer for the front forks and put it on top of the spring and I will be good to go.

Wut?

Another of many situations where dave moss is giving different advice than every other suspension guy I know of.

Either he is smarter than everyone else. .. or he is way over rated.

I know which one I think.


Never heard of anyone putting spacers internally on late gen gsxrs. How much did you say you weigh again?

230. He was explaining I think on the preload...not sure if it was preload but one of those things sucks without the spacer he said he said its common

All he is adding 15mm of pre load that you can't take out then your adjusters can add more.

At your weight you need springs at least. Cranking in pre load is NOT the right way to get the sag right

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

Unless he saw that he is slow molasses and adding some preload will be just fine.


But seriously, change the springs. I weigh a little less than you do and after riding my GSXR with heavier weight springs has me thinking about buying them for my street bike as well, and I ride that thing like a girl ( from ride like a girl comment)

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

Does that tail have a seat pad? I was riding without one for a wile, but having some grip in the seat helps you from sliding too much.

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

I sent a pm to the tech spec guy on the forum asking for a sheet of high fusion material. I want to use that stuff rather than foam.

I just got the foam that came with the body from armour bodies.

I'm not stupid fast enough to where which padding will make a difference

We still have the stock seat on our girl, although Joe would prefer a superbike tail

Only reason I opted for the super bike tail was because it was a killer deal.

Like already stated, not fast enough yet to really feel a difference

Re: Boredz V49 - Canucks optional :P

per Joe, you can "feel" better feed back from the rear suspension with the superbike tail IHO
