I weight 178-180 without gear
I'm using a Ohlins TTX ( mechanical ) rear shock and Ohlins FKR ( mechanical ) forks

Thanks for the info. Yes, sorry, 100 rear spring rate on my R1. Since you weigh so much less than me I'm surprised you need such a high spring rate.

Lots of great information here!!! To me geometry and suspension setup is a very personal thing that is usually never the same for 2 riders, ballpark yes.. I use my bikes for Race only and like very stiff suspension, geometry is also very personal.. Depending on how you like to turnin,how do you like your bike to feel on the brakes, corner exit? I can and will post my setup if you would like? Just remember what works best for my pace and skill levels may feel like crap to you...I tell everyone the best solution is to get with a suspension guy who can work with you and follow you around the track to see what you need from the bike..

This is great advice and couldn't be more true. I do feel like generally each bike has a certain direction everyone goes in and tweaks from there, which is what I'm looking for. Like on my R1 most people drop the font, to what degree is personal. On my old RSV4 the consensus was raise the front, and personalize from there.

So I'd definitely like to hear what you're running on your V4! Since you race, would also like to hear what skill level you feel you're riding at so we can judge the setup too since a bike setup to feel smooth going fast will most likely feel like crap going 10 seconds a lap slower! Thanks!
