saggy bum

This fits in with what I've found, in that front end sag is far less than rear, despite figures on the web of around 25-30mm I can't soften my front end anything like that without excessive dive on braking. Rear sag figure accurate enough, but front more like 10-15 mm. (RR-V Fireblade on standard settings)
