F4-1000S at the track - Thunderhill

Hey, MV enthusiasts, here are some of the photos the talented guys over at gotbluemilk.com got of me this last Mon/Tues at Thunderhill, near Winters, CA.:

http://www.matthooverphoto.com/track/

The bike performed incredibly - perfectly stable in the turns and just an overall rock-solid feel... I had my suspension set up by the legendary Dave Moss (feelthetrack.com) and it turns out the rebound on the stock forks must be all the way in clockwise (slowest possible rebound) for it to be correct. I'm out of adjustment on rebound settings. Thus I need new internals for the rebound stack in the forks...looking into GP Suspension in Oregon.

Also, don't try the 43 tooth sprocket at the track...it was too low and couldn't effectively use the copious amounts of torque from the engine. I'm going to a 40 for my next track day. On the roads, though, 43 is great. Initially I was apprehensive of taking my bike on the track, but it's well worth it to do so.

- Matt H.

Nice pics, what make is the radial brake kit?, the fork lowers look much better than most of the aftermarket kits
