    Hi guys, just bought my first 1000RR Blade. First ride out this weekend love the Bike despite the fact it tried to kill me lol. Should have checked tyres properly and Susspension..
    The Susspension had been set up for someone 17.5 stone and I'm 12 at best wet through. The tyres leave a lot to be desired as far as tread goes, rear flatlined past wear markers in the middle and set at 27 psi, front not much better..
    I know I should have checked before taking her out I was just so excited .Despite this I love the Bike new tyres ordered and booked in for Susspension set up .
    Great forum by the way already and read many useful posts

    Be careful with the pictures
    Check everything laying around in the background and watch what reflects
    Hawkeyes springs to mind

    Welcome! And you're right, it's a great forum.
    The rear suspension spring adjuster adjuster can be tight. Let some penetrating fluid do its work first!
