Suspension

It seems to me that the bike wants to stand up when hitting bumps while leaned over in a curve, and there is also some headshake. Between the headshake and the standing up it feels pretty akward at times (street riding). My suspension is stock and is set up a tad toward the soft side as far as compression and rebound clickers go (maybe a click or two on the soft side of the "standard" settings front and rear). I intentionally went a bit soft just to see what the ride characteristics were.

It feels like some additional rebound damping might help with the standing up thing - what do you guys think?

Hello all, new to this forum... Where did you get this bag?

See where it says KTM on the top ?

Try your dealer, or any online KTM parts retailer.

As an example: http://shop.ktm.com/int_en/powerpart...l-10-30-l.html
