Another 954 set up thread :-)
Well i have had my 954 blade nearly a month now haven't been able to get on wih it very well , feels kinda nervous , skitish over white lines and road imperfections . mis judging corners and feel like loading front to much on roundabouts and steering being pulled to the side on bumps
Thought it was me as used to more sit up bikes CB750, Z750, VFR750FG, 1200 bandit and vfr8000 and needed to get used sports bike riding position.
Setup From Previous owner
Tyre pressures as swingarm F-36 BT014F ,R-40 BT023R
Front suspension PreLoad 8 Turns out counter clockwise, compression and rebound 4 turns out
Rear Suspension preload 5 notch , compression 2 turns out , rebound 4 turns out
i'm about 180Lbs all kitted up so though all these settings to Hard and riding feels hard way it hit bumps
Today finally found some time to set up front suspension , turns out sag was around 65mm , think the hardness was actually forks bottoming out on bumps
best i could acheive was 35mm sag with the preload wound right in set all other settings to 2 turns out as stock and set rear settings to stock 4th notch and 2 turns out ,
lowered Trye pressures to F-32 R-36
Feels like a totally new bike even had conidence on fast roundabouts but front wants to drop in on really slow ones though
Should i have to wind front preload right in for my Weight ???
will have to think about front fork rebuild but not sure if do it myself or send it away some where ???
Can any UK owners suggest somewhere??
