Gilroy,

I was fairly lucky with mine. I brought it in race trim, Ohlins rear, Harris High levels etc....

But the front forks were stock, so first race out I started to bottom them out...!

Straight to a guy close by me Revs Suspension (John Gaskill 0121 501 3321) he's really cool. I took my stockers there and he max'd them up with ohlins internals/valves etc (450) and made them sweet... no complaints from me.
Just had the rear ohlins stripped, checked and re-oiled (closed season) so that's all sorted. He is always on the phone for me, whenever I think I have an issue, he's there....

Revolution.... (Roger). Spoke with him a couple of weeks ago asking about 20HP more for the SP1....

He came back with some stuff, I think he is a Moriwaki dealer too (I saw his name on the other post about the RC51 site (mansam? or something)) he sounds good, nice genuine guy....

I am still umming and arrring wether to go for it or not....

Mine is stock engine... PC11 Mapped, 125BHP she kicked out! which was nice.... a mate of mine races a Factory Mille.....113BHP!!! heheheheh still kicks everybody's ass though..... Fugger...

To be honest, Xmas has killed me but the SP1 loved the attention! ;-)

all I have done to her is wavy's (although I said I wouldn't) Dymags, forks and CRG levers, carbon air snorkel....( i guess most of you guys have now (Brett in Australia) top man).

Do the suspension though, that is definately a must, even if you do the front's first....

Got to be worth 1 second a lap to you. Setup right, 2 seconds!

I have a Ohlins work sheet with part numbers etc on it if you want a copy. All the standard base settings etc as when they come out of the w/shop...!

take it easy...

Cheers

You begin your riding career with an empty bag of experience and a full bag of luck. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.....
