I hit the kink center when I come through it in low 4th, but I always shift too much, as long as you're light on the bars it's fine, even with the stock front forks.I bet it was.. I get headshake on my racebike exiting 14 at CMP. How was the back straight kink on this bike (straightaway before hard left)? Were you riding over the bump in kink?
+1 shortens the wheel base (unless links are added), reducing weight on the front, which can be counteracted by raising the forks but then high speed stability is reduced.
First impressions on my commute to work today... Yeah, it's a little noticeable gassing out for the couple of fun turns on/off the highways. I can feel the increased torque. I'll have to really test this at Roebling next week.
Please let us know if they have better initial bite
Super useful info, thanks a bunch.For track use I have the RJL XX pads.
For the FZ09, I have the original RJL pads not the ceramic. The XX have good initial bite but still good feel for trail braking (very progressive). If your tracking your bike I would look at the original RJL or even the XX. Here is a chart showing each type of pad they make. You can go super strong with the ZZ but not for street riding. The RJL originals don't need any time to heat up but the XX and up are race pads and need heat to work properly. On track its a non-issue but street riding I wouldn't go higher then the RJL line.

Nope! I’m doing one thing at a time to reflect on each modification. So far, just one rip up and down the road here with the new MC, it’s something! The variable ratio adjustment is really neat. I currently have the settings at short and hard pressure which feels great. We are riding Roebling on Saturday, so I wanted to get this mod done. I still have my EBC HH pads in, so I’ll see how it does.Wow, nice upgrades, Did you go with the 320 mm rotors too?
