Set up Bike for Weight

Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited did my adjustment. Best Money Spent So Far, Do It First, then check out the tires. IMHO

I found the suggested settings for the suspension on sportrider.com, and it helped a lot (but still a little soft)(bike still dives with hard breaking but not as bad). I am not sure what someone else is going to do to improve it because it basically has all the settings to full stiff or near full stiff. I believe (tell me if i am wrong) that the suspension for the zzr is simply inadequate in stock form for hard riding. I would rather put the money into the suspension and not wreck it on trackday than to spend the same money replacing my plastics. Can anyone point me in the right direction to getting my suspension ready for the track?

Motorcycles Unlimited does my suspension and SCRC provides the rubber. I'm a bigger fella like you..get your suspension tuned!

And after riding a moderate pace on my 1krr, I am going to change my tire tune a bit...try the bt016 to start with. You'll enjoy a relatively sticky tire with twice the street life of an 002rs. As your pace increases then move to the 002 or even maybe the 003rs which should be avalable soon.

Get your suspension set up to your weight. For the longest time I didn't believe it would make that big of a difference.......that was until I had mine done. Man on man....talking about a noticeable difference. Highly recommended to get done
