Do a trackday with No Limits and get Colin at 100% Suspension to do it for you, then test it for 7 sessions whilst he adjusts as required...there is no better way to test it and get sound advice from a real professional.

Or, you don't need to do the trackday, just turn up at Brands or something and Colin will do it for you.

Gary was a front runner for many years in the North Glos race club and has a great test road outside his front door, just remember to slow down for the single lane hump back bridge

have had fork and shock rebuild work done at Steve Jordan and Setup Engineering. Both good but took a while.

Had the 848 setup for me (stock kit, just settings) when new by Rob @ Pro-Twins, did it while I waited
