215 lb. ready to ride new front end setup


Recommended Posts

Someone posted a very different fork setup and in desperation I tried it. I like it! Preload set to MAX and rebound OFF. At 215 pounds dressed it beats every other setting that I have tried. Still playing with the rear shock!!

by the way this is not an optimal solution. the cc in oil should be inside the parameter values. also the density of oil is a parameter. from my experience these are half solutions. the best is to pick up the correct spring rates for your weight and riding style. the spring haa to do the job without preloading it a lot. last but not least, keep in mind that oem springs are not LINEAR and we have to start from there. the bike is not a tourer its a tall (hypermotard like) sport bike with some touring capabilities.
