Bought a 2012 S1000RR - BMW racing paint & the dealer is doing very well on price so far...
All: my other rides are listed in the signature. Why did I buy it? ONE TEST RIDE on a 2010. Ay Carumba what a sweet handling 1000 it is.
My TL being a twin has way more beef from idle up to 6K, but who cares? The RR is Smooth, sweet, and easy easy easy to roll throttle - brake without those annoying rear wheel hiccups the TL does unless your rolloff/brake is absolutely perfecto (has a stock "semi-slipper" clutch). I am expecting stunning trackdays and will likely get a day or 2 of CSS when I'm out there on a job.
So: am 185lb / 6' and was wondering if there are some good 'starter' suspension settings out there. Looking for good starts for sag/preload and starter damping settings. Also, does anyone lower the front end a mm or two, or is stock just as I experienced it, perfect???
I know mine will end up different and am going to have the dealer set the preloads for proper sag and compression with me on it, but wanted some advice FWIW. My son is dying with jealousy
