Default new baby brought home today

have to say she put a smile on my face , the power to weight is unbelievable, the brakes are fantastic never had stopping power like that came as a shock really
, the midrange especially all down the gears and revs is perfect

, my last sports was a water-cooled gsxr11 and she weighed over 250kgs and put out possibly 120?? at the rear,
I loved her but driving around town was like a tank and she only came to life when you had an open road where you could wind down the throttle but this girl, not a bother, city driving and when you hit the twisties boom she is fantastic a fucking low flying cruise missile.


this youke weights 166kgs dry, mighty suspension, power commander 5.
whats she putting out at the rear, I read 175 on motorcycle specs but another site said 150 so ~I don't know till I get her on a JOG
Dyno, she is mapped alright to suit the can and air filter

On the suspension, I was reading that's its very good if you set it up properly any thoughts on this lads , do you do it yourself or bring her to a mech/tuner/suspension lad.

I have 2 carbon f small side panels that I have to stick on, there is no bolts for them so they have to be glued, any tip on what type of glue will get the job done.

Use a gasket sealant to mount the panels - I use Dirko sealant, you'll get it in an auto factors.

Tons of videos about it. Not hard to do but having a buddy help is a good idea. Set the sag first using preload adjusters then comp and rebound is down to how you ride the bike and personal preference. I'll try dig some links out later. I personally set up the sag to suit my weight and put the rest of it to factory settings, make small incremental changes from there as you see fit.

100%. You don't know what you're missing until you see the difference. Not hard to do, just need to know how. Watch some videos on YouTube and you'll get the basics. You'll need some help to measure sag, not really a 1 person job. Might be an idea to get some help from someone who knows. What area are you in?

Essentially three adjustments to make:
- Set the sag (spring compression)
- Set the rebound damping (rebound adjuster)
- Set the compression damping (compression adjuster)
