Interesting! I liked the bit about the chicken strip profile.

NB: the total front suspension movement is 120mm (2011-2020) not 140 odd as stated by the rider. Also less the 12mm bump stop. Unless it's different in Aus/NZ?

I've actually measured my 2020 Ninja unloaded and it's 126mm total between the bottom of the fork seal and top of fork bottom.

There's lots of set up vids about but this is the first I've seen that explains the chicken strip feathers and the lips on the tread.
Brilliant, I'll be checking mine tomorrow
