What's your tire pressures?
I have looked and tried all ranges of air pressure. But different tires will be different air pressures.. i have the factory Pirelli on but now worn out. I'm Going with the Q3 Plus next.. currently my air pressure is 30/33. Once again, i have tried all kinds of airpressures that are recommenced, and the bike felt sluggish and hard to flip. Its hard for me to go to track days to get this in tune. Hoping that someone has the same weight or close to it has taken it and had the suspension set up, so i can enjoy this bike.

@tim421zambonie - I suggest you look at Dave Moss' web site and learn about suspension setup. You should know the basics if you're going to be on track. At this point you should've already adjusted the bikes bars and levers to your liking.

For street I run 37 lbs front and rear and anyway where near the low 30's that you run has been unrideable. Have you set your sag first? 40mm front and 30mm rear rider sag has been a good starting point which is a 10mm difference I'm currently at a 12mm difference which has it turn in a little quicker at 42mm front sag. Adding rebound also made the bike feel more stable and planted especially the front end when added rebound felt like it had more weight on it and glued down in the turns so to speak. My 959 was a non corse that I added Ohlins to front and rear so my clicker settings won't help you but it is now amazing in the twisties and the track.Good luck
