Just noticed 200+ posts....what is wrong with this picture....Answer, way toooooooo much posting for my liking.... :745: :745:

V...I see you've dropped your front an additional 5mm or so more than stock. Was this to quicken up the steering for PI?  Have you installed an aftermarket damper?

Hey GrandMaster Lowrance, lord of all lords (sorry I couldn't resist...lol, you can punch me nxt time you are down here....)  :020: :020: :020:

Now, on a more serious note,

1 - yes, I have dropped the front another ring, three showing to sharpen the steering a bit, not only because PI, more like riding style/preference really, I'm more of a flicker than a leaner. As you know it is a trade off between steering speed vs stability...hence the answer to your nxt question

2 - Yes, I have installed the Hyperpro RSC on my bike, I can run it quite "loose" and be always confident that if the steering damper's shaft velocity increses too much, the "progressive" stage stops the shake  :028:

 :015:

I hope my answers have pleased you, m'lord .....

By "flicker" you mean that you snap the bike by the bars in order to change direction right? Instead of leaning more over the bike and use more body?

Ampj8,

A combination of both really, I tend to use a lot of body movement, definitely not sitting on the top of the bike like a lump of (... Insert here whatever you think is appropriate...lol) you can easily see what I mean on my videos, plus positive counter steering on the bars. The main reason for this is, I like to "finish" the turn as soon as I can, which suits the type of riding I do, b & c back roads, twisties and specially trackdays, this is the opposite to longer lazy arcs through corners, I don't do freeways, highways etc, lucky enough to live in a place where I have the opportunity not to ;)


On the second half of the video the camera is mounted on the back facing forward, you can see "body movement" then ;) that day was a public holiday with gazillions of cop all over the place therefore speeds, and steering speed, were quite subdued, but it gives the idea

Hope I have answered your question brother, otherwise please ask away
