2005 1000RR Fork setup

I have just bought a 2005 1000RR and looking to fit out what the best fork setup can be for the dampening, compression and rebound.

I have done this previously on a setup ohlins but not sure what the best setup is for the CBR stock forks.

Re: 2005 1000RR Fork setup

The first thing is just trying to get close to sag. If you're like me, and most other riders the stock spring will be entirely too soft to get remotely close. But it is the first and best place to start.

Re: 2005 1000RR Fork setup

yeah check out ROGUE RACING RC51, CBR1000RR, 919 & GSXR1000 Resource Websites for a cheap and easy way to make your forks actually sag settable (word?)
if you weigh more than about 140 in full gear the spring is not stiff enough

Yep.

Then comb through the SportRider (?sp Sportsrider) mag website for indicative damping settings as a starting point.

Re: 2005 1000RR Fork setup

a lot of people arent liking those

i didnt read 1 post on1000rr.net that gave a positive review of the sportrider settings

the main thing is to get the sag right

then its adjusting the rebound and compression until you can bounce the forks
they should go down then spring back up and just start on a second bounce then settle

when riding
if you grab the front brake they should go down but not bottom out
put zip ties on the fork tubes and ridee it

they should not bottom out but should at least go more than 3/4 down
under heaving braking

Re: 2005 1000RR Fork setup

Well as I said, they're a starting point.

No universal setting works - it of course depends on the rider, the pace and the roads.

Do NOT use these settings..... You can search here on fireblades. Or use Rogue info or pick-up some stuff off 1000-net.

Post your weight and type of riding and I'll give you a STARTING point.

Congrats on the bike.
