stock suspension 2015 f3 800

finally took it out today..
what I noticed.

the mirrors are for amusement purposes.
the drive by wire is extremely sensitive .
the suspension "seems" very stiff.. or was it bottoming out in the front ?
i think just stiff..

is there room to work with the stock forks?
any suggestions on adjustments ?
im 5.9. about 190+ when you add in the leathers.

otherwise.. it feels awesome.. very nimble.. cant wait till the breakin period
is done.!!

That breaking in is just to get you used to the bike.

Welcome, I am near the Mass border in NH as an FYI -

My mirrors came off pretty quickly after riding the bike a few times after seeing nothing but my elbows.

I'm a bit heavier than you but I do think the front end bottoms out on stock settings, there is a nice suspension thread in here with some good input ( http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=165953 )

If you find the ride by wire too sensitive, go into custom settings and put throttle sensitivity to normal mode. Leave everything else sport mode.

put a zip/cable tie around one of your fork legs up near the dust seal and go for a good ride then check where on the leg the tie is sitting compared to the extended fork length and you will know how much travel you are using. You have to set the sag at both ends to suit your weight and get such base measurements before wasting money on suspension upgrades.
