Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

Well since no one else will say it, "That's a load of crap". We all know that setting up a bike is, and always will be completely different for each rider. I know I brake much later than most and my front set up is not what most would like. And of course we could have a debate for days about many other aspects of "How To"


BLAH BLAH BLAH !!!!

Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

Go to sportrider.com and look at there base settings for your bike, use that as your starting point and adjust from there based on your riding style and feedback at the track

Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

Learn to set sag yourself and what Leon suggested is a good starting point.

If you don't trust yourself bring it to Eric Gray at GMD.

Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

I rode home yesterday with my ride and the first thing I tough is to post here...

I swap fork spring on my ride from .90 to .95km/mm. Not a big change but should be better. Stock preload is 0.680", I put 0.730. Got my new tires installed too and change shock oil at the same time (20W)

By the time I hit the road... I almost shat myself. That thing was quite scary to ride at 70MPH on I95. Was even worst while turning... like when you ride a car with not enough caster... very light front end.

Well, got back home and check few things...

1-My rear shock was still crank to #7 (full stiff) from riding 2 up last time. Rear sag @ 25mm
2-Front sag end up being spot on at 35mm
3-Put rear shock back to #5 (35mm sag)
4-tire PSI ok!
5-I've been riding with the front end lowered 8mm for a long time with the stock springs. So my school of tough was I should be going lower with a stiffer spring and more preload on static ride height. Started at 10mm lower.
6-Then I remember ordering the wrong front tire. 120/60 instead of 120/70! (-12mm)

So a combo of all those 2 things made the ride home not so fun...

Rear sag fix
Will go up on the front to zero (flush to triple three) and start from there...

If I have any more question I might need help... or just get a new tire. But most than likely I felt like too much rake and not enough trail... was very unstable!

Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

This is an awesome chart. Im not really experienced enough to know if my bikes doing something it shouldnt be but I notice on slower sharp right hand turns it seems like it wants to fight me to turn in. To the left it acts fine. Im leaning towards it being a problem with my body position into right handers but maybe could it be suspension related? Rather ask here then make a new thread for something so simple

Re: Suspension Fixes for cornering problems...

It really is personal preference though. Some people like and now how to ride a different way rom I do. I might prefer stiffer rate because I feel like it keeps me on my toes..

Do yourself a favor and don't tune it yourself.
