I believe 2 sunny can get you set up as well.
It all depends what side of town you are on.
Since you are on the south go see Sunny.

Or...make it to the track and go see Roger. $30 for the day, he knows Ducs & knows Ohlins extremely well. Ride it a session, come back & have it tweaked based on the feedback you have for him. Rinse & repeat.

Hard deal to beat, plus, you get to use the bike for what it was meant for - track riding! *bonus!*

Ride it to Dallas and have Jim Cambora work on it. Worth every single mile and minute spent.

Yeah irak, you aren't the only one who told me that.

Maybe if I can get some type of trip together, I'll think about doing that.

Track or Street riding??? Patrick setup my bike for the track and I am very happy with it. Just recently he's helped dial in my Penske.

I am all for supporting our sponsors, but if its something you can do yourself... do it yourself. Set the suspension to the factory settings (whatever the owners manual says) and then go buy some motorcycle suspension setup books (i had some passed down to me). The best way to learn your suspension (and suspension in general) is to get some educational books/videos and do it yourself. Its not that hard to set up properly, for your weight/riding style/track vs street/etc... you just need to know where to start. Its all about trial and error. When i get home from class ill look and see what the title/authors are of the books i have.

Or the other option is: you take it to someone, pay them to work on your bike, and never know what the reasoning was behind what they adjusted. your choice.

That's a really good idea, and actually would benefit me a little more because it's harder to explain how something feels to someone else.

I would appreciate it if you would remember to look up those books.

Sonny said he can't do the Ohlins forks, he can do the regular ones. Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions.
