If it's the ohlins I was looking at...I don't think there are any adjustments...just change of spring rate but it should still be a vast improvement over stock! I called ohlins directly and talked to the techs there about it 3 months ago. Basically they picked a shock that is usually a part of a dual rear shock setup on older bikes and cruisers that would also match up to our lil bike and are using it. Although the guy out west I think is working with them on another option for a ttx version?

I removed the clutch switch without issue. I also recommend the -1 for the front sprocket. TJ at riders discount can help you out if STG doesn't carry it.

And I love the unbeaten's! A bunch of guys love the bridgestones too though so? Atleast there are options!

Got some swingarm stand spools from Sato racing yesterday. Also safety wired the brake caliper and installed an r6 throttle tube. The r6 tube has a nice short throw to it, just like on the GSXR. Fits with no mods, just needs to have the throttle cables adjusted.

The throttle is wide open....all the time... I thought about that mod but decided it was a waste of time. There is no highsiding...atleast not from too much throttle. Although I have slid the rear by going into a corner too fast cranked all the way over... I drag toes, legs, and exhaust... The thing corners like it's on rails. Getting used to and having faith in those skinny lil tires after being on 200/55's takes a bit but once you do...game on.

Mounting a steering damper was the trickiest task for me...

I would go with the PCV that the guy out west has developed over the bazaaz if I had it to do over... I skipped the quickshifter too. Pop the clutch like on a dirt bike... I'm usually in 5th by the time I'm at the end of pit out anyways so...

lol...I took the steering damper off of a late model gsxr 1k and using a fork mounting bracket from ebay, fabbed up a steering damper setup. About $30 total. It's silly because there is no need for a damper on these lil bikes...
