aussietracer Posted March 28, 2015 Share Posted March 28, 2015 Since taking ownership of my Tracer I had noticed the wobble in and out of corners, and the head wobble when getting on the gas any higher then 140kmh/86mph. The head wobble was so bad I could get it started with aggressive active countersteering (pushing on bars). Decided to tweak the suspension to see how it went. Tyres- Fr36psi, R38psi Rider- 90Kg with gear. Luggage- minimum. Forks Standard Settings- 16mm Compression, 7 clicks from full hard New Settings- 14mm Compression, 6 clicks from full hard Rear Shock. My shock didnt have markings but assuming they are set to standard like the forks... Standard Settings- 1.5 turns from full hard rebound, Setting 4 for preload/compression. New Settings- .5 turns from full hard rebound, Setting 6 for preload/compression. The bike handles itself better in the corners, particularly under throttle leaving the apex (no more bouncing). I couldn't induce head wobble, even under spirited throttle mid corner or on the straight. I might dial the rear back .5 turn, Set. 5 in the future but for the mean time the bike rides like my dearly departed Triumph. EDIT: Forgot to add, the TCS lights up a bit more getting on the gas, especially out of the corner, might be because the power isnt being lost to the rear shock.
