Suspension set up....

For some reason this year my bike (93' CBR900RR) seems to dive in the front really bad when the throttle is backed out. It is bad. Also, There is a huge amount of weight trans. to the rear wheel when the throttle is rolled on. There appears to be premature tire wear in the center of the tire due to increase friction. I'm not so interested why it started this year, but would like some help in setting it up right. Can someone give a concise explanation on how the weight is distributed, why, and how compression and rebound work in conjunction with rear spring stiffness, or a good place to read up on this problem I am having. Thanks

Re: Suspension set up....

Have you ever had the forks serviced? They're getting pretty old now...

They have been serviced within the last 2 years. New seals and the sort.

Re: Suspension set up....

screw in compression and rebound damping a click or two at a time(then test ride) and see what happens.
