Got my suspension tuned/dialed in today @ Mspeed Performance.

Topped up the front fork air caps @ 12psi (no other adjustments possible.) Adjusted preload on the rear Ohlins suspension.

Verdict: The bike handles like a dream (save for some discrepancies up front.) Total night and day difference. We determined the front fork springs (stock) are extremely old and need to be replaced/upgraded to something stiffer. Shitty because I had the front fork serviced last year with new oil, seals and Race Tech Gold Valve Emulators. I some how and stupidly convinced myself I'd be doing mostly pansy city poseur riding. The highway on and off ramps proved me wrong today.

I'll probably upgrade to Ohlins or Race Tech fork springs in a month or two. If you guys have never had your suspension dialed in, I highly suggest you have it done!
