    Just finished another day at Donny.

    All in all, it's the same story, my rear gets cold tear as soon as try to push it. Drop down lap times to 1.42 mark this time around.

    So, it sounds a bit extravagant but this time I took a remote session with Dave Moss via skype.
    Basically whats happening, rear doesnt get enough heat because it doesnt stay on track long enough. We're trying to alter suspension settings to allow rear to stay on track more.

    I must say stock suspension on 2016 model is nowhere near suitable for fast track riding, even for the golden weight of 85-90kg guy like me.

    This is how rear looks after 7 sessions:


    This is Dunlop medium D212 GP racer pro. 21psi whole day after warmers, 24psi off track.

    Similar times to me, used to have this problem, tried everything to sort it. Changed to v02's and problem disappeared. + much better longevity
    Speed doesnt kill, its how fast you stop.......

    Dunlop

    I have never gotten along with Dunlop race tyres either. They work really well for some but I personally dislike them.

    So the main message from Dave is:

    Code:
    We have a cold tear which is caused by not enough weight being on the rear tire.
    What was done so far:

    - added 7 turns on front preload (zip tie sits firm at 20mm)
    - front comp 3, reb 1
    - rear comp 4, reb 4
    - pressure 20psi off warmers

    It looks like right side started to clear up, I'm pleased.

    Why add compression on the rear if you want the weight back there?

    To compensate for soft oem spring, as I understand this.
