i'm new to sportbikes and weigh 165 lbs. can you give me suggestions on suspension settings (front and back) for street riding (normal to moderate agressive riding) thanks!!
I know your looking for a generic answer but a bike with 20,000 city miles from a 250lb rider is not going to be the same preload as a one year old bike with 1,000 miles from a 165lb rider.Just curious for his weight.. what do most of you 165-180 lbs have set for preload? How many lines are showing on your fork?
What's your spring rate? If it's stock, even the hardest seting will be too soft.uggh.. yes I am looking for generic lol. I am getting frustrated with changing clicks every day after reading jinksters thread to try and get in the ballpark.
No matter what I do to mine it feels like something is wrong. Its rough and harsh over every bump and making it less stiff makes it worse..
Assuming the internals are in good working order, you do not have enough rebound (top adjuster), which would be why it gets worse as you back off further. Turn the adjuster all the way in (clockwise). Be carefull not to bollom it out too hard because you can cause damage. Then turn them back 3 clicks and see how that works.well.. Im about 183 without clothes so.. maybe close to 190-200 when i think about it...
The front forks seem to like to hop up and down over smooth pavement.. almost feels like i have a broken spring or something... it just gets old... and I might as well have bought that Rc51. (still might)
