curt248....try using a large pair of chanel locks with a strong rag to adjust the preload. Make sure the sag is correct with you on it.

He said he had Mich Pilot Power on for the track.

I run Mich slicks on my 929 or 208 gp's

I'm assuming this is with race tires right?

Even after GMD installed A Penske shock I still scraped the bottom center of the belly pan.

Re: Maximum bank angle 2000 929 fireblade

I did adjust mine on the bike back in '03 when I got it (the only time I ever adjusted it actually) but I can't recall what I used. I do recall it was a mongrel of a job though. I've got a vague idea that I had to use two tools because there wasn't enough room to turn it a full notch in one hit so I had to turn it and hold it while I gripped it again to turn it further to lock in the notch.
The best way is to remove the shock and put it in a vice where you can get a proper grip on it with some big grips. Sounds like a much bigger job than it really is. You just remove the top shock bolt/nut and the two linkage plate bolts and drop the shock out the bottom, clean and adjust it and stick it back in.

Is there a way to adjust the preload of the rear suspension on a 929 without a special tool? I tried using a giant standard screwdriver but that didn't work. I need to tighten mine about 4 notches.

I never felt it was a problem. GMD Computrack set up my 929 and it still scraped.

My question is what is the correct sag for the 929?

I'm sure I haven't gotten close to the limits of my tires but if scraping plastic is the limit then I have a long ways to go.
Depends on which Corsas you're talking about. I run Pirelli slicks on the track so I can't really tell you much about Michelins. I was referring to scraping the brake and shift pedals(levers) being possible on stock suspension. Depending on the tire (and pressures) the 929 can have a considerable amount of lean angle. The first thing to do is set the sag to get the most out of the suspension (stock or aftermarket).

Re: Maximum bank angle 2000 929 fireblade

What is the proper way to set up stock suspension on the 929? I just set mine according to what sport rider said and it made a big positive difference in the way my bike rides and holds a line in corners.

I didn't set up my static sag or other sag either. What is the right amount of sag?
