Newbie Bike Setup

Hi all,

I just purchased a new bike back in November (Yamaha MT07) and am totally new to riding/motorcycles.

I was wondering there are any shops you all recommend on setting up bikes properly such as controls, preload and etc. Not looking for track setup but just proper cruising set up. I'm pretty sure the current setup from the dealer isn't ideal for my body type and height.

TIA!

You can also get The book “Total Control” by Lee Parks and he covers suspension setup. I’m sure the guy you are seeing can help you make sense of it for your bike.

It's a great book! I also like watching videos of Dave Moss on you tube.
