:tongue:Ive got a 1000 miles on the girl now and megga happy apart from the springy bits. Any slight change of pace mid corner and the front start to feel vague and ready to go. Im 15stone and shes on standard settings. Any similar size folks out there had a twiddle and if so what were the results. riding style is very smooth in and fairly aggresive out (ex dirt bike racer). Cheers in anticipation.

You could try a step up with springy bit on the monoshock but what tyre pressures have you?

Well i was going to suggest 36f (normal) and 42r,i suggest you try to keep to the back end and keep front normal.My change of pace starts from the start of the corner to +5/10mph at the end.
