Yeah, I know it's been discussed before... I am 98% sure I'm gonna go with Ohlins, but does anybody have any experience with other brands that they'd care to share?
how many times have you had to adjust it?Kruz said:Love my Scott's rotary....adjusts on the fly
Probably should have rode it this year.KBOlsen said:I'm getting a consistent shake when accelerating out of places like 5 and 7 at Blackhawk. We'll take a look at the neck bearings when John pulls the front end, just to make sure everything's within spec.
Dave, I'd love it if you were to take the TL out for a few laps next spring.
Thje stock front is a 70 profile. They were Michelin H2's. They seemed ot heat up quick and stick good but the erar just shredded. 180 miles (about 8 sessions) and it was done.Super Dave said:
You were having tire wear problems? And again, are you running the 70 profile front? Or were you, or did you run the 60 then put on a 70?
Yep - stock, stock, stock. Michelin H2's front and rear all year long. Funny how I got less slow (dare I say "faster") after you helped set the front suspension!Do you just have stock suspension on it? I'm almost betting that you do. If so, you probably need ride height too in the back.
Crazy said:hmmmmmmmm??????. Getting a Dampner was something on my lits this winter. I heard good and bad about the Scotts and I don't like the looks of that big brassy box on the steering head and it's a bit pricey. I think I would stick with Ricerockets recommendation for my bike anyway since he hasn't failed me yet on any of his recommendations for the R1.
I do have to say this though. When I bought the R1 everybody warned me to get the dampner right away. I took babysteps with the bike all year and I'm pretty sure I don't drive it like a grandma. I've never had a serious problem. A couple of slappers here and there but the kind where you just relax and ride it out. Never any major puckers. I know the forks on my bike were revalved but the shock looks stock besides a pecularly high ride height for an R1, so maybe there was some work done there but I still can't say I need a dampner real bad. The only time I seem to really need one is in a drag race situation. I think I am going to go with the Ohlins anyway this winter just to ad some extra stability. Most people say their bike feels alot better with them regardless if they had tankslapper problems before or not.
my .02 cents
Why so mad:confused If you like the Scott's your good to go. Maybe I'll get a chance to take it out for a spin yet.TerminatorR1 said:
:mad :mad :mad Oh well, I still like it. You should have asked to take mine out for a ride to see if you could feel a difference, or if you liked the feel of it.
