U think so? Looking at the sparkplug the bike doesn't seem that overly rich?

What's up everyone What weight and spring rates do you guys have? The numbers in the manual is with gear on, right? I weight 196 and I got a 4.8nm spring and I get 35mm sag and 105mm race sag.

Tried the short linkage and a different shock and the bike works so much better. Also got a conevalve on so it feels pritty good, 100 times better than the air fork and stock setup. Tried yellow and green spring in the powervalve and liked it much better

I rode yamahas from 2001-2007 and allways got the parts for free if the engines broke. Yamaha were very nice that way. Never had any issues with frames but if you got a good dealer they should help you..

I put 13x48 on so I use 3 gear in most corners, never have to use second. Third is taller and pulls pretty far out of the corners
