Hey Sliver!!! Hope your doing well man! Yeah I lowered the front by 6mm but I want to raise the rear to try and quicken the turn in's. So I was thinking of adding the Brocks link to see if you can raise the rear with them. If I lower the rear also that will also lessen the front change I believe. Just trying to get her to transition quicker.

Yah..you can raise it with those window links.If you leave it as is,you've effectively raised the rear.Going higher might get ya where ya wanna be.You might lose a bit of stability however at high speed.With the damper,it might not be an issue though.Good ta see ya back....

h2madness!

Yeah That's what I was thinking also. I'm going to grab the links and give it a try. I'm also going to add the 2016 clutch to ease it up a bit. I was going to trade her in on the new Street Fighter V4 I just ordered but after riding her if I can dial her in a bit more to my liking there's no sense in losing the $$$ on the trade in.

thanks man!

Didja notice much or any change adding the BST's to yours?And how about weight loss...you know how much with those?And handling?

Hope that clutch mod works good for ya.I'm so used to mine,don't feel any oddness or anything.Compared to my 14r,the lever pull is not very light.But it feels fine for me.I wish I could get an upgrade to the IMU system.Wheely control and all.

h2madness!

To be honest I don’t remember how much weight it was but it was about 3 lbs. on the front and maybe 1 on the rear. But if you can search my posts I know the exact numbers will be there. I installed some rapid Tek BST on my 1290 Super Duke along with rotors and I saved 17 lbs! But it wasn’t as much on the H2. You can feel the difference but it’s not night and day.

Yeah.That's why I decided to not get the BST's.3 lbs in front,1 lb in back.Didn't seem worth it to me..I know the mass is different,but I didn't figure that much to spend that kind of money.I just adjusted my riding to be a bit more 'aggressive' in the corners and found she turned really well with a bit more body positioning and such.The lowering helped as well.

Yeah I found on the H2 and my Ducati V4 Speciale the weight diff is not much at all. They do look amazing for sure but very $$$$
