Re: How long did you drive with an instructor?

LOL, I've ridden with an instructor who has been an instructor for years and pointed out a bad habit he had developed.... just sayin', everyone can use someone else to "instruct".

Re: How long did you drive with an instructor?

It really means nothing if you go "solo" earlier or later than anyone else. No matter how much experience and time you have, you can ALWAYS learn something with having an instructor ride with you.

Re: OEM ZCP Spacer Size/Drawbacks

This has never been discussed before.

Spacers could wear your bearings faster.

I ran 25mm up front, looked awesome. Rear, depends on if you are lowered or not and what size tire.

The camber is "ok"... it should actually be higher than that (more negative). But what is killing your tires is the RTAB. What doesn't make sense to me... the RTAB is fully encased by the carrier,...

Re: NOOB question about suspension please help

Correct, it is supposed to be in the middle of the rubber. Hell, see if you can take more pics, because it doesn't even make sense how that happened.

Re: About that Sport button...

I'll combine.... Search! All it does it change the throttle mapping so you think it feels more powerful. It's just more sensitive and takes away modulation control.

Re: NOOB question about suspension please help

Yeah, that's not right. You need RTABs. Your mechanic should have stopped immediately if he saw that and not finished the alignment. Or did he get pissed and cause that damage????
