    My best ride-in to ride-out time to completely disassemble forks and make shim stack changes is about two hours; I have done this a few times on my ST and also my other bikes. There is no need to pull any tupperware, just the calipers, fender, steering cover, then the wheel and finally the fork legs meed to come off.

    One thing I notice on my bikes, if it's cold out, even in the 50's, the bikes handle like pigs. Until the suspension warms up, they're hard to handle in the twisties.......which for me is as soon as I leave my driveway. On the ZRX1200, I can turn the damping out a click or 2 and it relieves some of the stiffness. For the most part, my '08 rides pretty well. I put Maxium 7.5 wt in the forks. Seals and bushings good even after 57k. If anything messed up my handling or feel is the Shinko 011's I put on after the PR4's. It was upsetting how different those tires are.
    I learn from my mistakes, not my accomplishments
