Lowered the front 5mm, what to do now?
Been out of here for a long time, but am still riding the versys and its as good as it was last year!
Before I was complaning a bit because I felt the stock front a bit too high comparing with the rear
Found a match setup both for one and two up the bike which was
rear: preload on the 3th / mid point, damping 4 clicks out
front: preload 4 turns out, damping 3/4 of one turn out
Now on the last revision (18.000km) I asked the mech to lower the front a bit, he lowered about 5mm (1/2 cm). Now when ridding I lost just a tiny bit of front feedback and donīt feel so much confident in turning compared to how it was before. Only thing I did was getting the rear damping one more click out and it felt better, but still would like to fine tune a bit the front,
So how should I correct this, should I add in preload to the front and/or lower the front damping, or should I get the back on higher preload and /or damping ?
thks for any advice, am a bit lost here on how to fine tune this one
