Do your 950 forks not have the hi speed adjustment? Bottom end fork leg, under the plastic cover?

Preload

With the preload adjusters all the way in you may find your suspension response to become 'bouncy'. If indeed you need all that preload perhaps go for the heavier spring anyway.

Rider weight is a...

If we are talking new versions anyway......ABS?

I certainly would like to see a version for ABS models. I don't want to relocate the unit and want to keep the ABS.

I have a E-09 ready to replace my almost worn MT21. Both are 140, but the Mitas is way wider. side to side, the Mitas to Pirelli looks like a 150 to 130. Really a big difference between them.
