This is really a great opportunity to have dedicated attention of a true suspension genius, and I am looking forward to post more detail very soon. I'll link it in this thread.
Awesome!

I know this one specifically is for the R1-Forum, but Dave and I are planning an R6-Form event starting 14 November that will follow the same format.

Re: Motorcycle Suspension Setup 101

Gents,

Quick question on front fork set up for 3rd generation (08). I recently had my suspension set up (front and rear). When the tech set up the forks he moved it up to the 1st line instead of leaving it at the OEM setting and adjusting from their. He said this would the bike turn in quicker.

For those that have had their suspsension set up. Were your forks raised? Is this common or just a preference by the tech? He had said that the R6 with OEM internals was soft up front. I am not questioning his decision to move it up so much as he is way more qualified than I am, I just want to get others experience.

I won't get a chance to ride in it until the first track day in May. Will that 5mm make that big of a difference in turn in and exit of a corner?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Need more info:

Tire size and manufacturer
spring rates if aftermarket or are you on stock suspension?
what style of rider are you? do you brake hard and late and trail brake into corners or brake early and off the brakes turning in?

what's braking got to do with it?

A taller bike drops in faster from what i've gathered
