if anything that stand is stronger because it doesnt' get as narrow as it did before

Just curious, did you sag the bike? or got it lowered with certain link?

I installed the Sato Racing adjustable link. But I used the one for the 1199. The 899 version only drops the bike 20mm or so. Which I can get in sag. But that makes the rear to squishy. The 1199 version drops it about the same on an 1199. But the 899 is set up to use the equivalent of the progressive setting. If anyone goes that route, I have mine set to 138mm to the center of the bolts.

As far as ride quality, most importantly I feel more secure on the bike. Cornering is like its on rails. I can toe drag and feel in complete control. The bike still remains very responsive.

Hope this info helps.

I'm confused why you installed a link to make the bike lower. Is it your height or are track bikes typically lower to the ground?

Sry to bring up old post.
