Hi folks...Thinking of buying this beauty....Buddy wants $8000 which is pricey but has major mods...Has 2 Brothers,carbon,magnesium slip ons($1800) has steering damper($800),tail delete,bar mirrors,etc... My question is, I took for ride. Felt like I had a falling over bars feeling. No pressure on wrist, just felt like rear was too hi... Rear spring was set at half way on threads. My question is is the spring nut was set to bottom, would that compress rear much and take away this high rear feeling. Bike is black and beautiful.

Well if you loosen the spanner nut on the rear shock to release compression on the spring It will change the rear sag value and the bike will sit lower with you on it. You could double check the rear tire size. I believe stock is a 190/50 on the gen 4. The previous generation came with a 190/55 which is about maybe 10 to 12 mm difference increase in diameter.
