Suspension Set up

I recently had a new tire (M-3) put on the bike and also had Patrick set up the suspension. What a difference that made!!! I had already broke the tire in but didn't really have a chance to test the suspension until yesterday.

I went on Jimmy Z ride yesterday and upon the first few turns I could feel the bike "diving" into the corners. Made me feel much more at ease while hitting the corners. The set up made all the difference in the world. The bike handled totally different in a much better way. Props to Motorcycles Unlimited and the set up!!!

I bet that would make a huge difference and if I raced on the regular I would defintely invest in some after market suspension parts.

Getting the suspension dialed in is about the best bang for the buck on a sport bike. It always amazes me how many people don't set it up in the first place.. just buy it and ride.

true...I rode the F4 for about 4,000 miles before having it done...wish I would have done it sooner, especially for $25 bucks or so!
