what are the correct settings for the rear and front suspension?
When i measured my sag on the 8r it was 60mm (from axle to mark on the seat) is this right?
ive would it up to about 30mm..
any thoughts

Static sag on a sport bike is set to about 15 - 25mm.

Bimota famously don't seem to have standard suspension settings which is something they used to get slated for in bike tests
