Swing arm pivot

Not to be padantic about it, but has anyone (racing or tracking hard) played with the swing arm pivot on the R model?

What differences did you feel?.., good and bad please.

Has anyone seen the Ducati SSTK bike settings online as to what Canepa, or La Marra have been running at assen or silver stone?

Performance bike posted Nicky Hayden's suspension settings when he was debuting the R at COTA, has anyone tried those?

It's going to be another month for me before my bike sees the track, so I'm just armchair riding trying to figure things out to try based on what I have noticed on the road.

Thanks.

I was getting better results on -2 . My bike was getting out of shape on hard acceleration out of corners

Maybe I'm an idiot, but after adjusting the preload, the stock race damping settings were good for me.

+1 on -2 and it does make a difference BUT you must properly set the swingarm angle and of course the chain tension.

@roadracerx do you have any information on setting the swingarm angle correctly when changing the pivot point? Did you make up a bracket to do the measurement??
