The thing that helps the most is seat time. Even with wonky suspension (front sprung for my weight and rear sprung stock) seat time helped me with cornering on my monster. Recently resprung the back as well, but haven't had the sag set other than by eye ball (since I don't have friends
). It's still MUCH better than when it wasn't sprung for my weight.
For my Daytona, I had it resprung and suspension tuned by local suspension guru...HOLY COW! What a difference! Best money I've spent on either bike. I set it on a line now and it'll stay there all day. Only bad thing about this is it increased the stability so much that I find myself going faster and faster...really have to remember that I'm on the street and that the
are right around the next curve.
The monster springs are easy to do. Me and a couple of buds did the front in a single day with only 3 trips to the hardware store for under $200. I did the rear in my condo garage with a camping headlamp with 2 trips to the hardware store for $110. Then you have to con some friends (or pay some guys from home depot like I'm going to do) to come help you set your sag.
