Anybody in DFW any good with setting up suspension?





#1
Got my new bike about two months ago and have been playing around with the suspension and using other peoples suspension settings and it is not for me.


I can gladly donate beer or whatever you like in return in helping me setup my static sag.


I will gladly meet you anywhere.


In the past I bought Yamahas and their shop always set them up for me as I set on the bike and they adjusted, but Plano Suzuki didnt want to at all...(not going to give them any more of my money, that's for sure!)



I get on and off the bike while you measure and turn a few screws......while drinking, somebody lend me a hand please.

It comes up when you click the "New Posts" link, but I don't think this is the correct forum for it either. Moving to General.

If you want to get your suspension set up go to RideSmart.info and see when the next trackday is out at MSR Cresson or Eagles Canyon Raceway go to one of them and seek out a gentleman named Roger with On Road Off Road Cycle and he will take care of your for about $40 bucks. He is a suspension guru. Also there is a guy named Keith Hertell with Road & Track Cycles he is out of San Antonio he is also a Suspension Guru :thumbsup:

Go to the hardest setting with the preload, and next folk service, change the spring. Good luck.

Preload doesn't make it harder. It simply adjusts the position of travel between compression and rebound travel.

You need to get the correct valving to go with the new springs. RaceTech can hook you up with those too.

Do you know how to set preload? Just turn them so they won't go any lower. I think you need 14 mm socket. With your weight and the .85 spring, it will not be hard enough, but doable. Play with your rebound to tweak.
