As always, a hoot.
Finally listened to all the good advice I have been receiving and got my suspension properly set up at the track today by Race Bike Services (at least I think that's what they are called).
Why didn't I do this sooner !!!
I had stagnated, with my best lap times staying pretty much the same for my last 2 or 3 track days.
I didn't time the first session after the suspension setup, but over the remaining 3 sessions:
- My average lap time improved by 1.7 sec/lap
- Smashed my previous best lap by 1.5 Seconds
- My "theoretical best" lap (pick of best sectors across all laps as measured by GPS) improved by 2.6 seconds and is now 2.5 seconds better than my best lap suggesting I have some improvement in me just through becoming more consistent.
Best thing is, I once again feel like I have much faster laps in me - just got to put it all together.
Prior today I felt like I had plateaued and track days were starting to become a bit "same same", but I am now fully motivated again.
Funny thing is I didn't think there was anything wrong with my suspension set up. Just goes to show once again, "we don't know what we don't know".
So if you haven't done it yet I suggest you read the above again.
Was a 2008 Tornado Red D675 (got broken)
Now a red 2010 RSV4R (that used to be black)
