Last race day I was having problems with handling after changing the bikes geometry while, ironically, chasing improved handling. Id been getting the opposite of what I was expecting; dropping the front made the steering heavier instead of lighter, the back end was coming up under brakes as if the front was sitting up higher, a neutral throttle through corners was pushing me wide instead of bringing the front in.

Figuring out how to fix these problems meant talking to Robert Taylor from KSS a few times and then changing multiple settings, something that isnt recommended. However, with the Taupo Suzuki Series round fast approaching I didnt have the track time to be able to test each change separately so I was going to have to take a gamble and hope the changes were enough.
