That is funny. May you never receive the wrath. lol

You may want to go back to the very first posts ever on this site (2003 2004), or garner a little knowledge from over 10k of laps at Barber, or talk to Dan Kyle about the crazy bastard. Visit Rogue racing and you get a little idea of the thousands of hours he has put in to bike development, a lot of it on CBR's.

Move You Ass!

I just got off the phone with GP Suspensions and I'm waiting on a quote based on that conversation.

They recommended a Penske rear shock with adjustable ride height. Although I understand that the bike may need a geometry change, I can't say why most riders would need to change that geometry from environment to environment; I'm somewhat a set it and forget it kinda guy (once I get it how I like). However for my dual street/trackday use, I can see how this may come in handy.

I don't see however a need to raise both ends of the motorcycle...at least at my level of riding. I can see how too much can be dangerous and get the rider over the edge of the tirewall.

I'm beginning to wonder if I'll somehow end up with adjustable triple clamps in my future with this bike. But, I digress...

-2006 CBR1000RR- Jardine RT-1 CF, GP Shift rearsets, color matched levers (more upgrades in progress)
-2013 CBR250R-ABS (Hers and now SOLD)
-2002 CBR600F4i (Track/Street) (was mine and now hers)
ZG Dbl Bbl, Galfer SS Lines, PC3r, Muzzy s/o, K&N air filter, NRC stator cover, ShiftMinder(WTF?), Fireblade brakes, fenderless, Gold Rearsets, undercut gears, Factory Pro Shift Kit
Ohlins, Racetech, Showa custom Suspension
Because 12,000 RPM makes me feel better

Can I ask what level you ride (trackday)?

7 years away from the track, 5 years of minimal riding and a new literbike...might be awhile before I'm out of the "C" group. I've got 4 days at a school scheduled this year. I will probably book 2-4 trackdays and see if I can at least get up to "B" level by year's end.
