So there is a lot to unpack here but if you like the way your friend's bike works you might want to start with a setup from a professional.I switched to Metzelers because Ive always ran Metzelers...
You will need many tools, stands, etc to do this work properly.
Also, with respect to tires, you get what you pay for....I understand you get a deal on the Metzelers so for sure switch to the K2s from the RRs.
The most important thing you can do is get the sag set properly then if your rebound or compression has been adjusted then go to the owner's manual and set your "clickers" back to factory settings.
What is your weight without gear?
Do you have a 1299S or base model 1299?
