I tried that, the one I went to at PBIR didn't have a suspension guy, and another one I missed at Jennings, I asked one of the coordinators and he said they probably wouldnt have a suspension guy.

Also, I asked my dealer to help me get set up when I bought the bike and they seemed completely baffled by the question, so I didn't press any further.

If you don't associate with track folks on a regular basis, I swear the general public craps their pants when asked about suspension setup. At least that's been my experience.

That's because for the most part street riders can get away with almost anything for suspension. They aren't pushing it or utilizing it
