That's interesting about your rear shocks. My was set the same way and I know for a fact the previous owner never did anything to the bike except point it down the road. So maybe it's a factory problem and not previous owner. Just a thought. I can't imagine two different dummies doing the exact same thing. Well maybe I can at that.got around 11k miles on my dunnies, the back looks 2/3 good, but the front is toast on the RIGHT side..... that's because the guy that owned the bike before me had the rear suspension at 2 on the left and 4 on the right
If you only got 7k out of them then what tire pressure are you running --32/36?? I'm guessing.I have only 7k+ on my 06R and already have MM880's in the garage. I ride aggressively but don't burn rubber. I feel like they should have been good for more. I'm going with dynabeads and bought a 180/70 for the back just because it brings the 10% speedo error down under 7%, and is a 1/4" wider! By the way, when the tread gets thin it definately changes the grip, wet or dry, pretty significantly.
