    Hello from essex

    Hi. Just picked up a gen3 sport with hp wheels and akra pipe.

    Previously i had a zx10r which i was super confident on but i find the front end bm not as good so i need to work on that area.

    Hi also from ESSEX!
    ZX10 was my second choice when I was changing, awesome bike.
    I recon tyres and trust, different bike different feel.

    Miles in the saddle to get the feel then start fiddling.

    Front end on the BM is not like most others.
    But tyres do make a big difference

    Welcome to the forum Mike and congratulations on your new RR!

    As the others have said, the semi-active damping on the RR does provide a different feel to conventional suspension.
    The ride can however be changed dramatically depending on what DDC mode the bike is in (Sport, Race, Slick) and what damping settings you use.

    Enjoy the forum, there is a wonderful community on here and loads of information.
    I hope you have many happy miles ahead of you
