Just wanted to give my experience. Don't have the budget for the Penske right now so this is what I've been running for the last year. I've done plenty of miles and a trackday on the bike and i think it steers great. Don't know where the forks are set at stock but mine had 10mm sticking out from the upper tree. Forks also have emulators and springs. These are the +1" dogbones from Ebay and an 07' ZX6R shock(silver & black). Anyway, bike handles great for anyone whos been wanting to give this a shot, of course this is my opinion. I'm sure it will put the back up too much for some. Some of the guys here who race might know what you can get away with when raising the back up. I don't feel as though the front was nervous or felt like tucking at all. Of course, I've ridden around problems for ages so maybe I'm not the best reference!
