    New linkage low,forks are protruding by 5,I think the front suspension is set to hard,forcing it to drift out,I only weight 10.5 stone,will give griff a ring an get it sorted,I've bought a race fairing so I can do track days so it needs sorting,any ideas on gearing and mods would be nice mate.
    Kind regards Mike.

    I'm better at mods than suspension ha ha ...Griffs your man and yes..you are on the light side standard suspension I think is for approx 12.5 stone rider

    Ok the basics for the mille would be a decent race can 450mm/500 or so in length with a 60mm or bigger link pipe,modded collector,airbox mod and a decent eprom chip...2 main players are forza aprilia or Gabro for the chips

    Gearing is 16/44 ...lose a little bit of topend but puts the bike in the sweet spot and with the mods above really changes the bike.

    After that's its a pc3 with a custom map and possibly 57mm throttle bodies ...if you have money 1060cc bigbore kit,gen2 heads,etc etc etc
