    Thanks for sharing - they're good numbers!

    I tuned my VM26 by just taking it out of the box too. Interesting that it only got that change from tuning - suggests they are pretty good out of the box really. Did it improve much in the way it rode?

    You say you just want it reliable - has it been? Be very interesting to see what you get from the 28.
