Turn the spring preload knob CW for more - firmer spring. Turn the rebound knob CW for more - harder - slower damping. The plastic tool is inserted in the two holes ion the knob. I haven't broken...
Sag is sag, it is either correct or it's not.
Free sag (bike unladen off stands) for the front around 20-23mm and the rear at 8-12mm
Rider sag (Bike with rider on the bike geared up to ride) Set...
What an amazing little motor. Really talks to you from 6-8k.
Just bought it from our friends at Bentonville BMW. Neat bike. Light and nimble. Crappy front end 15 weight oil helped but... A fix coming from Race Tech of gold valves and springs. BTW picture?...

I would love this bike. Pleeaassee BMW.
But give me a chain so I can gear it cheap for different tracks or a special weekend. Certainly a lot cheaper than $1300.00 for a rear drive gear change. ...

2) make your bike as light as you can - remove everything you can
3) set your shock sag to 25-30mm on both ends if you can - rear if it's all you got - if the...
I'll be there after Daytona with N8 and Brett. Will I see you and/or Bubba at Daytona or Roebling?
This 55 year old "child of the 70's - 80's" (77R100RS) agrees! Great sport-tourer! 900 miles in a day on my ST to get a ride in the Tennessee twisties.

Thanks for answering my question. The VFR is a fine bike.
"The '05 servo brakes sucked"
I had servo brakes on my old 2004 KGT. The key was one(1) finger. That's all you needed for max braking. But I'm not a fan either.
"Wallowy in the corners"...
Did you and I ride the same bike? I can agree with the servo issue. I bought a non ABS to get real brakes.
I ride a 05 ST with the stock shield. I'm 5'10" and tour with the bars in the high position and the stock seat front high and back low covered with an Alaskan skin. I always wear my...
