Special thanks to mcromo44 and Willie Vass of Vass Performance Cycle
you guys were a huge help.
This reminds me that I owe you some front end info.
I have not forgotten.
As for the Penske, you are going to like it, and the special Digressive Compression piston face that Willie came up with is the key for coping with the 919's strong squat characteristic. That plus running the shock longer to get some more swingarm angle to alter the squat/antisquat forces relationship. Added bonus to the increased swingarm angle is that the bike is lifted up and makes it easier to lever into turns. The front end will have to elevated accordingly, that is if you want to maintain your front end geometry.
Willie Vass is a super guy, that is for sure, re both skills and manner.
I'm all ears when he's talking, that's for sure !
