set the sag on the 1000 and rode buddys RC-51

me and my buddy (has a RC-51 stroked out to 1100cc, new cams, dual cf yoshi's, kevlar brake lines, chrome racing rims, cf hugger, and like a ton of other stuff that i just cant remember...the list was huge...sick bike!)
well we set the sag on the bike...front and back and dam was my bike wicked soft....feels a ton better now...doesnt dive...feels more solid especially in the corners and while braking.....so much better now


RC-51....holy low end....ive never ridden a v-twin and im telling ya...id love to have a Rc-51....such a nice bike...would destroy mine around town

Isn't that an oxymoron?

Chrome is a heavy coating and just for show.

Chrome aint so bad. Polished looks nicer n don't add weight, but both are a pita to keep up

That's cool I just meant the fact that they are chrome means they have added weight sheerly for looks (chrome is very heavy) and weight for looks is not typically a racing feature...
