to show how 390 is with after-market shock(no ride-height option) at speed fromon continues S curv & Z zig zag turn that ends with a right yeah right curves are my challenge .80kmph /50mph upwards
Video from Kevin Camroon:
It is a problem for me indeed since steering/turn 390 is possible when I muscle it in and by that time I have missed the turn-in point and also feel that I am getting 'pushed' when I am off the throttle to correct the late turn-in carrying momentum.
what i like the feeling when riding the 125 its so simple to flick it from side to side its fun a exact opposite of 390 with upgraded suspension (without ride height devise for rear shock)
View attachment 7335
the height range for every half-turn value goes as follows: 9.3>8.8>8.3>7.8>7.3>6.8>6.3>5.8>5.3 etc. (at the lowest setting possible measured distance is 2.3mm as shown above positions in the picture)
>at 8.3 mm height the shock length is approx 330 MM thats 10mm longer than the OEM shock at step no 9 on max preload.
it is a significant gain in ride height.
Ride height 7.3 mm
Counter steer and how the handlebar turns back from initiating the turn: this is not felt on 390 including with upgraded shock from "Shock Factory" (my opinion).
On YSS it is very much more noticeable at 7.3mm ride height. I have also added 1.5 turns of preload (to accommodate a passenger) and 5 more added on 'rebound' clicks ( there is a problem here).
the thing is the shock has lost its "nitrogen gas which leaked" Clickers are not easy to feel it's like turning a tap so this is a common occurrence on shock (I thought it had an independent free gas separator piston) and requires yearly service of replacing the seal kit n new shock oil 2.5w type / also the YSS shocks has leaking shock oil that also indicates service due< the shortcoming on YSS on longevity usage it's few years old >
"Shock Factory its clickers still functioning and the clickers work well to date just that I did not choose the ride height device still erks.
another thing now happening is the 'start switch' won't operate when the motorcycle is left as is for a few days(on the paddock stand) when I remove the paddock stand lay it on the side stand and attempt to start there is no response
I checked the light>horn >indicator > engine kill switch all worked but no response on the start switch.
>>>> my wild guess is the Banking sensor might be getting enough tilt for it to activate since the rear has gained height<<<< any advice? the sensor is new
when the motorcycle is running for the day there is no issue at all.
The ride is amazing with a pillion with 7.3mm ride height (1mm more than previous) the front end on executing counter steer is more evident/noticeable and also carries momentum onto a turn and feels like i am using a lesser lean angle (control is easy)
the pendulum effect when the pillion leans on the opposite side is no more, my head is centre of the motorcycle so there by the pillion is comfortable
