There's flaw in your logic.

It's worth every penny of the $25.00.

Never ran warmers. I will attempt to find a picture from last season of the cold tearing.

You can get it done at Motorcycles Unlimited if you're in Houston or at a a LSTD trackday. If you are at a Ridesmart event, On-Road Off-Road Cycles is there for suspension set-ups. Either way, it's a good investment.

Getting the suspension set for you will make the bike feel totally different... even if its just stock forks and shock, proper adjustment will make the world of difference
