Sag settings

I have a 2001 Honda CBR 929. The forks have been worked by Dan Kyle and I have an Ohlins rear shock. I am using this bike primarily as a track bike and need to set sag. I searched the site and got a number of different numbers. I contacted DK and he suggested 40MM in the front and 30MM in the rear. I know Dan is the man for suspension set ups but just wanted to get a better idea. What do you guys think?

Re: Sag settings

I have the same set up, and those are the numbers that I have been running. I ride on the street only (for now) and the bikes works fairly well. I need to work more on the damping, as I feel there are still some gains to be had in that area. I would be intested to know what damping settings you run for the street.

Re: Sag settings

I had him redo my forks with Racetech springs when I installed an Ohlins shock and he recommended 36-38mm for the front and 26-30mm for the rear for the track.

That sounds more like it. I was thinking 25/35 til he recommended 30/40. What did you end up going with?

Re: Sag settings

I have a slightly different set-up (0.95Kg K-Tech springs up front and a WP4618 rear shock) but my sag settings are right in the range that Red Rider outlines - 35mm up front and 28mm at the rear...

The bike handles really well on the track - on the road its probably a little firm, but then I don't tend to ride on the road very much any more.

Cheers, Spanky.

I'm set at the low end of the range...36/26.
