has anyone changed the settings on their 08? how does the stock configuration come? just in the middle (not to soft not to hard)? and does anyone suggest any changes for all around street/freeway riding? thanks

Im about 150 and ride pretty aggressively and do a lot of wheelies and hard twisties and I found stock setup to be very stiff and harsh both in the front and the rear. That does have a lot to do with the weight because the rear spring is more for someone that weighs about 180. I softed up the rear a significant amount, and softened the front but not as much.

I've been running the Default settings per the owners manual on the track. I should be getting an Ohlins TTX36 and valving/cartridge kit for the front here soon, Lord Willing. I have been running WERA Expert lap times at Tally on stock Suspension. Also blazed Putnam park yesterday on all stock Suspension. It's very good.

Problem is, the Forks are Sprung for 150LBS....the Shock is sprung for 190LBS!!! Go figure!

I'm going to set the sag on mine this weekend and start adjusting from there. So far it's def stiff but not harsh if that makes sense. Just find a good road and start dialing it in.
