Moving on to the suspension, the front fork has a somewhat firm feel that is mostly noticeable in the beginning of the stroke - almost as if it's not very progressive in this area. The fork handled braking bumps and obstacles well, especially the harder landings. I am eager to try and soften the initial part of the stroke more to my liking. However, with that being said, the fork soaked up braking bumps and hard landings just fine and I didn’t feel any negative feedback in my hands. The track didn’t get too rough at Cahuilla during our test day, so it will be interesting to see how this fork performs when faced with a rougher track. For the rear shock, I started riding at the beginning of the day with 100mm of sag, which worked alright, but I wanted the rear to squat a little more and have less weight on the front end. The Kawasaki technician working with me for the day, Casey Stewart, adjusted the sag to 104mm, which proved to be the right move as the bike felt more balanced after we made this change.
