Regarding the stock suspension and ADS module, where do you land?

— It's supposed to be firm. That's why I bought a Type R, and I wouldn't change a thing. Honda knows what they're doing.

— I wish it came stock with the Type S ADS module, or some other suspension tuning that was more compliant and less bouncy over bumps.

CTR, n bikes
Where is: 3) I like the type R just fine, but got a type S module for street use. Type R for track, I mean, you're swapping tires, what is 10 min to swap the module?

Or option 4 just "its fine". No intention of changing and will almost certainly never be on a track. If it wasn't for all the talk about stiffness here and everywhere else I probably wouldn't have ever even thought about changing it out.

+R is fine for me even on street. Comfort is the softest id want it.

Curious if people expecting DE5 or softer are coming from Lexus/Audi/BMW comparisons?

'23 Civic Type R and many more...
I'm good with how the FL5 comes out of the box from the factory. It's a rare breed, imo.

"Type R" stands for "Racing" so it's natural to expect its hardcore nature and suspension feel.

I have zero issues with the FL5 suspension. I rarely use +R suspension. It's either in Comfort or Sport and it works for me. I have zero need or use for the DE5 ADS module.

That would be option 1.

I think it's misleading to label it as a track car. Definitely "track-able", but not a track car in the sense of true dedicated track vehicles.
I didn't do that. The moderators here added that. If you read my intiital post, I put it this way...

Agree. Definitely not a track car. It's a misnomer for sure but people are running with it.
