Very possibly true but I didn't even bother to try dealing with circlip because pulling the eye bushing only took about one minute and that allows you to pull the preload adjusters too, not necessary, but easier IMO.

What has shown up with the bike so far, that made you decide to go down this route before really getting to know it?
I weigh 150# on a heavy day so I knew from the start the bike would be oversprung for me and got recommendations for my weight and riding style from Jarel and ordered the springs right from the start. I live right on a nice mountain road so I'd had a chance to get a general feel for the bike and it was very stiff and felt that I was riding at the top of the stroke. Right now I am getting the correct sag up front with the stock springs so I'll wait until after my first track day (2 weeks) to decide if I need to swap them.

Absolutely stable.

Ahh, ok, a hell of a lot different to my 210 before riding kit.
No doubt your's will be faster due to the better power to weight ratio :-)

Yeah, that 60 pounds helps in more ways than one I'm going to go back out today and remeasure everything just to verify all of my numbers.

I didn't trust the jack so went with a make shift weights bench and ratchet straps on the hooks under the seat. Worked a treat and not as much of a cowboy job as it sounds - compared to the last time we did a mates r6

I'm 182lbs with gear, what spring rate is recommended? 170 or 190 lbs rate?

I got told that they like to be lightly sprung on the rear. I'm 16 stone and am going to try the 90 that came with it (usually use 100 on Kawasaki or yams) so I might need to go to a 95

Send a PM to Jarel with your weight and intended riding type and your estimate of your pace.
