Suspension settings - Set the sag to suit you in your gear. Then set the damping that suits you, the way you ride and what you like best.

Don't go and use some generic bs settings of "x" lines showing and "y" clicks.

Set the sag- set the damping at oem specs then play.

Here's a link to a couple of my favorite articles: This and This one too.

I took my bike to a guy who is part of a racing team. He had me bounce around on the bike while he took a bunch of measurements and then he adjusted everything. Made the biggest difference, the bike feels awesome now! See if someone in your town also does that.

100% on the money.

As for tires it depends on what you want performance of longevity?

Good mix of both Corsa III.

Hard core racetecs, supercorsa, pilot race.

I am not a fan of the Pilot Powers as the front lacks feel compared to other tires out there.
