Need help in utah

Hello all! So I just got my first rc sp2 and am trying to get it dialed in. I've had a bunch of streetbikes before but never lived anyplace with curves in roads so didn't care about suspension setup. Anyway I could use some help setting this thing up. Reading is great but there's nothing like in person coaching. Anybody live around slc in utah that could give me some assistance? It is stock and I am 6ft 210lbs.

Take your time....its worth the effort

The bike was originally sprung for horse jockeys, so if you find you cant hit your numbers on the sag, its time to buy some springs.

Are you doing the Apex trackday on the 29th at MMP? If so, I should be there and can give you a hand.

I'd love too but don't have all my gear yet. Kinda just getting back into the sportbike world after swearing I never would again 9 years ago. Been rising dirt since my
Last crash on the street. Just couldn't ignore the speed demons in my veins. As soon as I get around to having all my gear I'll meet you there for sure!
