test run complete
Hello to all, well first track day/ weekend at mosport with the ohlins kit done.
and it felt bloody good!
set up the bike to stock ohlins specs,sag,comp and rebound.
the first day i just left it alone cause i was rusty after winter, feel at turn in and lean was much improved. got faster in pm sessions and the rider felt a little better. it seems to my slow self that the harder you push and get your boobs on the tank the bike gives so much feedback.
a little hop from rear under braking at end of back straight and entering turn two, thought need to add rebound, but checked ohlins book and said to back off a click or two so did that and felt better.
sun was sad in the am sessions, i felt i could not ride a bike, wrong body position, no flow with the track etc. too much beer sat night probably.
then in the pm sessions i guess the baannaannas,trail mix,water and tuna snackers kicked in and away we went. felt good. feedback from the front brilliant, rear lovely as well.
sunday night had a chat with a mate chris duc tech and had him check my setting by feel he reckonned i was close but said try a click out on comp at the front, we did and on monday again improved feel, but by the getting tired so just enjoyed the day.
know i still have to work on the settings and maybe oil level but so far happy as a box of fluffy ducks!
vid is from monday am, would have had some from sat/sun but the rider brought the wrong batterys for the go-pro, have some vid but very shakey, 4a batterys do fit in a 3a go-pro but get very hot!

well , thats about it, all of the woodcraft mods did the job as always, and found the puig doub bubble screen works a treat.
oh, got a lead on some attack tripple clamps and a moto holder sub frame anyone got any info on those?
all the best, cheers, todd
i have yet to meet a motorcycle i do not like.
