I had a minor crash today and ended up damaging the right side of the bike. It just would not obey me and I ended up running out of the turn. Just came out with a sore ego and a couple bruises, but nothing bad, thank God.
An experienced friend of mine gave it a test ride, right after the event and concurred with me that the front suspension is so bad that the bike just would not go where it's supposed to. He rides an FZ09 (which is a beast!) and it is really soft in the turns.
I took it to the shop for a total fairing makeover. I'll take advantage of it being worked on, and I'll tune the whole suspension: rear shock (GSXR-750 mod) and 15wt oil and adjustable end caps for the front forks.
