Suspenion Setup - Where?

Anyone know where I can go to get my suspension setup for my weight? Can I trust a Yamaha dealer or do I need to attend a track day? I only ride street but the bike used to belong to a heavey set lady before I got it..so the preload on the rear spring was set all the way in. I move it out a bit but it still feels stiff.

Anyone ?

Hey, thanks, I'll need to find out when that is! and who is winky lol

No, I let go of the 749 sold it bcause I didnt want to spend a grand ever 6k miles on service. Plus it was heavy..do miss the torque though.

Thats fine and dandy but I kinda wanted to do it asap. I don think The Zone does it and if they did they'd probably rush the f out the process. I tried calling Highlands Yamaha and both times they said they'd call me back to schedule an appointment. I guess they dont want my business since they have not called.

Anyone know of a good place to get sportbike work done? I want to go to a place where they wont scratch my farings or lose half the screws when they take it off. I plan on getting the suspension setup to my weight and eventually to get a straight pipe installed to get rid of the box on my R6.

Any recommendations would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
