my bike is bone stock other than flash & QS/auto blip
my preload in the forks has been all the way out (lightest setting possible) and as you can see in the photo below taken that day at the track I was getting cold tear. This is because there was not enough weight on the front end, resulting in not enough heat in the tire. So since my preload was backed all the way out we are going to lighter fork springs. Going to get that done next week. If you need suspension work use Quinten, he's the best in town.

I see. I weigh 200 without gear so I need to go to heavier springs for sure. I don't live in SD I'm in LA, so I have to use someone locally out here.
