Very interesting, thanks for sharing. I have Dave Moss' tuning DVD, and set up my very not stock FZ1 using his methods.
Considering I'm 215lbs, and stock forks are usually way soft, I'm pretty happy that the front is too stiff for a 185lber. It means they will probably be perfect for me. After putting down all that money, it's refreshing to know I won't have to pull the forks off and put new spring and valving in them right away.
I'm interested to see if the shock will be too soft though. I usually have to jack up the preload on stock shocks so much to get preload right that it overwhelms the shocks rebound damping capabilities. Until I go aftermarket it's usually a compromise between too much sag or a shock that pogos.
