Tojo,

Power Ones is what the set up was for.
Yes, David will help you anytime.
In the "Notebook" The PSI's front and rear if you recall our conversation Justin Poole weighed in at a skant 150 lbs geared up. He always felt the front was TOO STIFF or HARD for him. He had a better feel with the front that low.
I know, a bit low you would think. But, it worked very well for him and he is NOT SLOW.

You have had Rodger re-spring the bike for your weight. Start with what Dave suggested and study the wear and feel of the tires. You get faster make an adjustment or two.
Not sure if the CB-1 had the front fork adjusters installed up top. I think it did.
You will have to feel the rear and the front to get a good setting for you.

Lastly don't slack on that thing. Work to gain confidence running it. Meaning you will need to push some. At that point you will feel what I asking you to recognize from the seat of your pants.

Tim,

Thanks. David gave me good tire pressure recommendations. With Roger's suspension work, it was a hoot today at MSRH. It was obviously slower than my ZX10R, but my corner speed was WAY faster.

Great little bike, don't worry, there was no slacking on it at all.

Thanks again,

Staton

With all due respect and thanks to those that posted...

Go back and read the "opinions" versus what THE source for this brand indicated.

The only thing I accomplished on this thread was prove that everyone has an opinion.

I'll stick to asking the vendor when I can. David was right on and the tires felt great. John with SCRC has been right on with his advice on Stones. These guys KNOW what works, all the rest of us are goobers.

It is amazing how many offer an opinion as gospel when they are WAY off. (not pointing anyone out though)


There are some great generalities that will apply, but when it comes down to it, ask your vendor. Whether it's David, John, Whoop, Patrick, Bill, etc...
