L7 Fork Height Recommendation

The bike is a L7 R model with BFF forks and ÷hlins TTX GP rear shock, is used only for track days with Pirelli Diablo Superbike Slicks SC2 - rear size 200/60. The bike dives very fast into the corners which I been handling so far but needs a lot of concentration. Since the Pirelli rear slick diameter changes the bike geometry, will appreciate any recommendation about the front forks height from top yoke. Havenīt adjusted the height from the original 16mm yet.

Cheers
Joe

Re: L7 Fork Height Recommendation

Iíve ran two ways flush forks and about 4mm sticking thru the top triple but what has a lot to do with your set up is what your rear shock is set to Iíve found 320mm to work very good and Iím running your same rear tire as you are. Having your forks in the stock location is horrible I canít imagine with a ohlins shock as it dives with the stock setup. My advice is for you to go up to your fork cap and lower if need be every one is different in there riding style but you will see a big difference by doing that.
