Good stuff! If you think tyre pressure changed the bike, wait until you swap the suspension for something better.Well it’s been a while since my original post and I’ve stuck with the R9T - the tyre pressure ‘epiphany’ was absolutely one factor but I’ve also got my position dialled and I bought some CNC levers and they’ve really made a difference in feel, along with the look.
Yesterday I went out on a 120 mile ride down to West Bay (Dorset) and it was fantastic, I actually went 2up and took a friend of mine - my goodness does that bike pull! I knew it had power but it just towed us around and up and down with no noticeable sap in power... utterly impressed.
I also adjusted the sag on the shock and that has made the rear end feel better when I’m one up also.
When we got to West Bay I parked up next to a beautiful Triumph, the guy had his family there and it was obvious it was a new purchase for him - the bike looked great but actually I liked having something different, especially when I started the R9T up with my Pro Race slip on - it sounds great!
So guys, many, many thanks for all the suggestions, opinions and guidance - I’m pleased I ‘reached out’ and I’m happy that I’ve gone through the motions with the bike. Chuffed.
