« on: February 18, 2020, 10:23:30 PM »
 What front wheel to rear wheel weight do people use for 250 / 350 bikes , always used 50 / 50 the Nortons,

seemed to work well , been given some doubtful figures on a bike .

Nigel ,
            Shows that whoever built the bike got the bias right , also the trail because you have said how well it handles .

            Bet it is better than your Hondas .  ;D ;D ;D
