Re: sportrider suspension settings

I concur. I set up my 05 600RR to their sugestion and really liked it. I put another turn of pre-load in the front (since I've got a few pounds on Kent) and it made it feel the best of any bike I've had. It's very firm on the street but feels great on the track.

Re: sportrider suspension settings

according to the manual, some of the stock settings are stiffer than the S.R. settings.....or am I reading them wrong?

Re: sportrider suspension settings

I have been running thier settings on my 954 since I bought the bike. Really like how it rides, a bit harsh in the bumpy sections, but man does she corner. If I were a suspeneion genious I'd tinker with it to refine it a bit, but alas, I am no suspension guru.

Re: sportrider suspension settings

Great find bj51. I will have to save the page to my fav's. But personally their suggestion for the 929 is a little soft. It may be easier on the butt and hands, but for smooth roads I set mine stiffer. Only time I have ever wish mine wasnt so stiff is when I go through some rough areas.

I tried both settings for my bike. The first railed but my ass and wrists paid the price.When I went to the softer settings I was able to ride better because I was relaxed...

Re: sportrider suspension settings

I thought the SR settings for the 04 1kRR was better than stock but it was way too mushy. I went with the settings in performance bikes and adjusted it a lil bit and it felt a lot better than the SR settings. Just my 2 cents
