Re: CBR 1000RR Track day suspension settings HELP!!!!!!

Best place to start is setting the static sag. You'll need a friend or two to help you with that as you need to be sitting on the bike.

Doing a Google search on setting static sag will get your numerous hits with lots of helpful instructions on how to do it.

Adjusting the compression and rebound damping has a lot to do with your weight, riding style, tires, track, etc and is something you'll need to play with to get the best results for you and your bike.
