jeffritz Posted February 10, 2015 Share Posted February 10, 2015 Ok, so a suspension noob here. I would like to setup my suspension myself. I understand the workings behind spring preload and valve damping (compression & rebound). Its the setup theory that confuses me. For example I hear that you want 30% rider/race sag. But I'm assuming this changes with type of bike and suspension. So I also hear that a manufacture will recommend XX% sag based on the OEM suspension on the bike. What I'm looking for is concrete numbers. Does Yamaha call for a magic mm/% of sag front and rear for the FJ? Is this found in the service manual? Should the front match the rear? Is it all just voodoo that gets passed from Jedi suspension tuner to apprentice? So would like to know the optimal: Race sag (Front/Rear)? Static sag (Front/Rear)? Where these figures are found for the FJ-09? Don't mean to sound like a asshat demanding something that does not really exist as a 100% absolute. Just after hours of research trying to make sense of it all. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
