1. Rider input - ensure riding technique mastered (can use on any bike)
2. Understand how your suspension works and ride to it's optimum performance (can use on any bike)
3. Understand the limits of tyres being used and be confident that you can recover from pushing beyond their limits
4. Ride bike to it's limits
5. Once you get past all the limits above only then is it time to start changing suspension and lastly tuning the engine
I run stock AT, correctly set up stock but raised suspension and some of the hardest tyres I can get - I don't need to tune the engine - I don't exactly hang around and things still touch down on corners

Oh I totally agree. You have to learn to ride before you can do anything
All this started after I saw some cheap Arrow pipes on German Ebay and wondered if it was worth it......
No! You should have checked the Italian Ebay first! Then gradually start using the Spanish Ebay BEFORE you enter the German Ebay!
