    ^^^ Interesting. I'm under 80 kgs (and will hopefully be a couple lighter by then!) and I haven't touched the preload since I got it, I don't even know what setting its on. It feels pretty hard though. Might be interesting to check it out?

    Skinny barstard, in riding gear I'm 95kg.
    Turns out on my 85kg nude, now I've bothered to look it up.

    Snap- I've never even measured the sag, or looked at what setting the rear preload is on , mainly as I know there really isn't much to adjust, and also as it's seemed pretty good to me (I'm 80-83kg without riding gear on ) but yeah I'm up for that too, will give our pit crew man some KTM stuff to fiddle with at Pembrey

    Absolutely fantastic weekend of fun. Lots of laughs, lots of banter and plenty of interesting stories in the bar.

    The morning saw unrelenting rain, but the weather man did say it would dry up. Tricky and Pygmy were on the edge of bailing without turning a wheel, "give it 20 mins and I'm going" but then it did actually start drying and everyone got out for 3 sessions, including one that seemed to be about 300 laps!

    Lots of smiles, lots of happy people.

    The zx6 worked beautifully as always, as did the other bikes of course. Alan as always was the perfect host for us.

    All in all, it doesn't get much better than that.

    Just got to collect the zx6 from tricky today, bring it back and get ready for Silverstone on Friday.
