palomar Posted April 20, 2004 Report Share Posted April 20, 2004 Issue: Front tire appears more "shagged" than rear after canyon or track riding. Bike: 2003 R1 Tire: Metzeler M1 Setup: 35 mm front, 25 mm rear sag Springs / valving: Circuit 1 front, Penske rear (front sag was 43 mm with preload adjuster maxed out with my 210 lb. weight) Whe I was running the bike on the stock 208 ZRs and stock suspension, the rear tire would always look more abused after a quick run through the canyons or a track day. After the suspension and tire change, the front tire has consitently looked more shagged after spirited riding. The bike feels good but I can't help but wonder if I have something out of balance. Perhaps tire pressure or ride height. I did raise the rear ride height about 8mm after the suspension change because the front felt slower after reducing the sag in the front from 43 mm to 35 mm. Any comments based on experience, etc. would be appreciated. WHC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
