Would it be difficult to mount one of your cameras so that one could tell from the resulting video if the front fork is extending as the bike goes faster? Not extending on acceleration. The aerodynamics causing front end lift which changes the angle of the fairing causing more front end lift taking weight off the front wheel?

Sure could and this might cool to have because if I decided to get the Traxxion fork rebuild done I can shoot a comparison video....

Very cool!!


A video would be very helpful. Be looking forward to seeing what it shows.

If you can get anything in the picture for reference of far the fork or swing arm travel are traveling no matter how crude that would be great.

Mainly you need to see if the fork is extending just based on speed.

We got in some FJR's, and a few Concours out of the crate too. Seem to be seeing more movement on the kaws, everyone wants a ZX-14 with bags and a bigger windshield.

I found a one owner 2014 Concours with only 5400 miles at a dealer in MA, I'm hoping to put eyeballs on it tomorrow before it gets snapped up. The price is also good, I've been trying to get up there for the last week and a half but I've got too much crap going on that gets in the way, fingers crossed for tomorrow. A deal like this could be enough push me over the edge of getting another bike instead of sinking money into the Vic.

@Joe_ I haven't found time to get the bike out to record anything. Things should be settled down for me after today and I can get back to riding....

Those bikes are fast and do it without any effort, like zero, even will full bags and a passenger, that's a big block sport bike right there.

I know, I'm going to have to be chill with the throttle if I got such a thing.. but I feel like the Concours is the type of bike that's built at level that's equal with the type of riding I do.
