    I spent some time with Evan and Phil yesterday, they were starting to take all of the chassis measurements
    Should have taken some photos, but got too busy flapping my mouth with questions and discussing set up ideas. Also confirmed all of the spring rates and those will be checked to make sure they are in the right range. As the RVF isn't in the database, Evan is going to come up with the ride height numbers and recommended spring rates and fork oil heights, based upon his experience as an Ohlins suspension tech in WSBK and MotoAmerica.

    Two digital scales with a range of 0-250 lbs. (0-114kg) one at each wheel. You can also check the weight bias at the same time. The biggest thing they knew that had to happen was to raise both ends a significant amount to make it easier to turn and change direction. The shock has ride height adjustment. if it needs more, Rick Oliver has a ride height part available and he will ship it across the pond.
