Suspension set up





#1
Started the suspension set up on the Busa. Extra 5 mm showing on thread on rear shock. 1 click extra rebound. Front 1 click rebound 2 clicks compression. Wow I would say it`s pretty much there. Bikes been transformed ! Oh and the 42 lbs of pressure in the front wheel !

Humm. He didn't give any specifics about his weight or riding style, and it seems the replies to what he's done are negative without being based on anything tangible.

I ride hard and love the twisties. When I got the bike it would not track true. It would run wide into corners and want to go straight. I found the front end was "loose". re greased the head race barings and re tightend. Raised the back end by compressing the spring by +5mm. Front was still "bouncy especially when cranked over on un even surfaces. Back would wallow very slightly. Hence the adjustment to the front and rear ! Bike now tracks and follows the road with littel rider input and now soaks all the bumps up !

Explain then I might be able to comment. By the way I have been riding bikes for over 40 years and do not ride in straight lines like you guys over the pond !
With your suspension setup, I thought you were attempting to haul a heavy load! Had no idea you were trying to improve cornering performance.
