Street and track . I feel threads like these can be detrimental to finding what's good for you and what works.

Can be if you believe every word, but if you read a lot of them , only keep the common denominator and what makes sense you can learn a lot.

Exactly.

It seems to me that some people are dicking around with things they don't really understand

the major mistake is the compilation of small changes that in the end get you exactly where you don't want to be..

Always go back to the beginning if what you did didn't improve things..

it's what I learned..
Thanks from Montfort

Good point .
Keeping a note book with all your settings and taking notes is a great idea as well .

Thank-you graciously

I Ride: Ride 1299s
Hi. I have just bought the S and sold my beloved base. It was totally set up for my weight, which is 68kg (without gear). No that I have the DES Ohlins, it shows different numbers to the settings I had on the Base. I spend most of the time riding on fast twisties in the mountains, and some time on the track. I prefer my setting on Flat and not Progressive. Any tips for the settings? Would be much appreciated.
Thanks
