Anyone know about factory suspension setting on this fireblade?
I don't have the owner manual, just a service manual file for 96-99 fireblade.
I'm not sure the setting are the same.
THX.

Not sure about the '99.....

for argument sake, here are the settings for the '02 954...

Front Forks
compression & rebound - 2 turns from full hard
fork preload - 7 turns from full soft

Rear Shock
compression & rebound - (same) 2 turns from full hard
Shock preload - center detent

It has the '96 and '97 recommended on there, which are fairly different bikes from your '99. May be a decent starting point though, I'd say much more so than the settings for a 954, which isn't even close to the same bike, 17" vs. 16" front wheel, etc.

Yes, I know you're looking for the factory settings, not SR recommended, but a lot of the time, SR recommended is close to stock.

Thanks for the answers, I just got the factory setting from the service manual that i didn't notice before.
This is the factory setting,i hope will help other 98-99 fireblade owners.
Front: pre-load: 12mm from top of the fork(three lines)
rebound: 1 turn form full hard
comp : 1,5 turn form full hard
Rear: pre-load: 3rd position
rebound: 1 turn form full hard
comp : 1 turn form full hard
drop me a message if other owners need help about service manual.Mine include 96-99 fireblade.
