Thanks for the numbers! A starting point is better than nothing.

I actually run my forks -4mm in the stock triples.
my rear wheel centered. Never measured for a number tho.

How in the hell did you measure .4 of a millimetre? The world's biggest set of calipers?

wow really? I've always heard forks flush.. I'm not sure what they come from the factory, but I loved the difference between the forks sticking up as they came from the factory and putting them flush.. Interesting.. Is this with stock triple clamps?

well, I heard things back and forth so far. last year i struggled with mid corner stability, but that was with stock front forks. ill play with it. im getting new forks this year. im going to try running the forks flush with the top triple and two extra links in the chain with the longer swing arm. stock gears. we'll see what happens. can always change it up as i go. thanks for the input peeps.

this seems a bit extreme for the front.

stock is +4
a lot of people here run flush.
I was told by an ohlins tech -4 and that -5 was safe.

seem like you would all your rake and trail...

is this with extender caps? Cartridge kit? A 30mm ohlins kits pushes the lower tubes out further than stock, which corrects the r&t issue. Then you don't have set the forks flush or deep for the same effect.
