    Fair enough... as I said earlier... not everyone is gonna have the same settings bcoz we all ride differently... and use the bike for different things...i.e commuting, weekend bike etc etc... as long as ur happy with the setup that's all that counts

    Front shocks are wound rite down so only the first ring is showing (I believe this is 10mm but can confirm if needed to) and damping is the same as the rear...fully in (hard) and back half a turn.

    This has sorted it to near perfect for me, (handles just as good as my K7 Gixxer track bike)! corner speeds are being carried a lot faster with no twitching when you get in the power early. No "diving" of the front forks under harsh breaking now either.

    I hope this helps so wot.

    Just remember every rider has a different style so it mite not be to ur liking.

    Seems to be a trend so far then both here and FZ09.org, this is good info as it seesm to be working for quite a few people. I'm just under 13st so have upped the preload and damping just now so will see how it feels today.

    I found that when u give it a fist full it doesn't always "lift" so u can get on the gas more and more without the worry of hooping it over and looking a knob when ur watching the bike go sailing down the road minus a rider lol.

    Glad I cud be of some help

    This is probably a bit premature of me as I don't have my MT yet but from what I remember of the test ride I'm going to have to do some setting up. Try as I did I couldn't see the damping screw for the rear shock!! Also, I notice that the damping adjustment is on the right fork leg only. All my recent bikes, Firestorm, CB1300, VFR have had poor damping and soft springing in the front. Rather than spend lots on new springs I have found a reasonable solution has been to put suitable spacers on top of the fork springs, not excessive, about 8mm max so there's no chance of the springs going "coilbound" under braking, and thicker fork oil, usually 15w. However, I have no experience with USD forks, especially where there is no damping screw on the other leg. Has anyone got experience of these forks, the left leg has to have oil in it, right???

    Just been out on some fast bumpy B-roads with the same settings as you and I'm actually really impressed, almost felt like a different bike! Before it was like a pogo stick and now it feels like its damping infinitely better.
