Through a few years of riding track days, reading online, and learning I put together some tips on tuning in suspension. Give it a read but YMMV. This was put together for my track bike but the general principals still apply. Works for me, may not for you. Note: the first part on reading tires is for street bikes. The second part on handling method applies more to DS bikes and tires Suspension Tuning Tips
Those links are going to prove invaluable to me once I start playing with the setup! Thanks!
