Thanks for all the points made ;
Certainly limited travel makes things difficult, and thanks for a reminder that progressive springs are perhaps not best suited to such shocks.

The advice from Andy was that the Racer's springs are a little softer, to suit a single rider, so that seems a reasonable starting point from which I can work out what the ideal would be. Avoidance of backache is one of the factors involved.

The adjustment provided looks like the basic unit will be adaptable, to get the optimum result . Then, when and if I can improve the fork action, I can do any necessary compensating alterations to the shocks, from a known point.

It is such a cheerful motorcycle -- just needs smoothing out a bit.

Sunbeem.

I tested a MT-07 today...it has a GREAT motor...awesome, really, for what it is...but on the whole, I far prefer the V7. Now I know. That said, when Yamaha offers a ADV version of the MT-07, watch out.
