Tamburini & Senna Sachs shock settings.

I went to a track day on Saturday and found myself talking to a suspension technician who had experience with the Tambo / Senna rear shock. I was surprised that he was to not only able to service the shock, but could also make up alloy collars to allow fitment of Ohlins springs. His work is as good as found on the Sachs shock. Very professional work.
In any case here are the settings that we settled on after 3 sessions:
Bump (compression) High speed: 7. Low speed: 4. Rebound: High speed: 2. Low speed: 3
If you want to try these settings, write down your old settings, just in case you want to go back to them.
I found that these settings allowed an earlier application of the throttle out of sweeping (progressive acceleration) corners. The bike didn't understeer during corner exit, this means I could apply more gas earlier.
Dave.

I can still see a line of virgin rubber on the edge.

How do you like those Power One compared to Supercorsa SC Pro if you ever had them? Or anyother sport/track tire?

I currently run Supercorsa SC Pro and they are superb, but would like to try something different.

Also, how do you like them against PP 2CT, I have in mind that you were running them also.

MihaSLO,
I've not used the Pirellis.
But I really like these Michelins. Give them a try, I run 30 PSI front and rear. They are significantly better than the PP 2CT. Quite a different profile to the PP 2CT CT also. Very nice control of turn in to the apex. Only thing I've used that's better are slicks.
Mine are 190/50/17 and 120/70/17.

In waaaaay over my head here, but doesn't the rider weight factor in the shock setting? Fat boy setting would be different from skinny man setting, right?

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........
