    Haven't set the sag yet, but if I get a chance this weekend I'll give it a shot. How do you go about getting it off the ground safely? Also, don't know about fitting a different rear shock, a big outlay for someone who doesn't race - but I'm interested in trying different spring rates and...

    Well I know some catalytic converters really make a bad smell. So if your bike has a catalytic converter, I would say it is the culprit.

    I just measured the forks and yes, they are as you said, so nobody has done anything with them it seems. I will try moving the forks up 5mm in the tclamps this weekend. As for the kind of riding I do, I love mountain roads, I don't like tight corners much tho, as my SS doesn't like to drop...

    Okay, I will have to wait to I get some money to do all these things. The idea was just small improvements to start with, nothing too flash until I get some dosh. I'll certainly do something about it soon tho... problem is I don't know anything about suspension rates or valving, so I guess...

    how adjustable is my suspension? Im not sure, but I think that different SS models came with different suspensions... my 900SS has a fairly adjustable front - preload (wind the top 23mm in with a socket - originally that is what I did, it dropped the front down and made it a bit sharper), plus...

    Define what you mean by 'better' oil? Higher quality? I generally use shell fork oil, though I haven't changed the oil in my ducati's forks yet. Or do you mean different viscosity? I was thinking perhaps trying with 5wt oil would soften/speed the forks up a bit. As for adjusting things...

    what do you mean you are running them 5mm shorter? Did you drop the forks down in the triple clamps? How did you lenghten the rear? I noticed the front was harsh the first time I rode it, had to soften it up as much with the clickers as I could, but it is still way too harsh... I suppose...

    Hey all, Im just wondering what I could do to my suspension (or other) to make my '98 model 900SS drop into corners better (please no suggestions that I upgrade the suspension, I really can't justify that at the moment). When I first rode it, before I bought it, I thought the handling was...
