I still think the suspension needs some fine tuning done to it. Maybe add tad more preload on forks and check sag then. Rear shock static sag was 25mm, but didn't measure rider sag.
I have only done 1 and a half trackdays with it and so far think it's fine I lost the front end once without any warning on my 1st session of 1st trackday wich cost me some confidence in the front end braking into corners but mid corner/straight line hard braking or accelerating out of corners the bike realy feels GREAT
I'm planning on doing some more trackdays next year and I will see how happy I feel about it after a few trackdays might get springspecialist work done to it after next winter because It wouldn't hurt to service the schock/forks anyway small extra amount of cash to get some other springs in it and adjusted to my weight.
Now the springs are a bit to hard for me (+- 10/15kg but it feels fine to me after using the softer comfort settings from the manual) I only weigh 62kg
