Haha... me too. I was under the impression at first that the left leg adjusted pre-load, right leg adjusted dampening... like some old mountain bikes. EDVR pointed it out to me a while ago and I evened them out, it did make a big difference. I use the bike mostly in the city, so I'm not pushing anything to the bikes limits... so safety was never an issue.

I'm thinking about selling my FZ-09. I'm in Houston... so I'm putting a feeler out there. The bike is mostly stock, but does have the integrated tail light with signals, removed tail section, and added cheap tail tidy. It also has the Yamaha wind screen now. Other than that, I put some reflective tape on the forks and removed the stock reflectors. It has about 2400 miles on it. The oil was changed by the factory at 600 miles, and I did purchase the transferable $700 warranty.
I had an insurance "glitch" that is causing me a lot of problems and I'm having trouble getting reasonably priced insurance... so I think I'll take a break from riding for a while.
If anyone is in the area looking for one, message me. I'm going to see what I still owe on the bike before I decide on the sale price. I'll post that as soon as I find out.
I just switched to Dairyland... as long as all the paperwork goes though OK, I'll be in good shape. Geico wanted $4400 from me, no KIDDING... I had an unintentional lapse in coverage.Dairyland insurance! Geico quoted $3500/year, and I got Dairyland for $350.
TICKET??? On the bike or in your car?Josh: Too bad you aren't old like me. I got my insurance thru AARP (Foremost) for a much cheaper price than I could get from State Farm, and I have a truck, van, and house insured by SF. All the other companies that advertise MC insurance came up with a large premium on their websites. Unfortunately, with a speeding ticket on my record now, I expect an increase is in the cards.
It really was the dumbest thing I've ever had happen... if they would have given me a courtesy call or dropped me an email, I'd have given them the new card number. I assumed that all direct withdraws used the routing number and account number, I never would have thought to call and give them my debit card number. Oh well, I think I have it all sorted out.I don't understand State Farm sometimes. Unless I'm missing it, there's no way to set up automatic payments, and they insist on mailing me stuff. I only use them for renters insurance though.
