Recommended suspension tuning books?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by arc, Jan 3, 2012.

  1. Want to increase my meager knowledge of bike suspension without going overboard - specifically want to be better able to set up my own suspension for different trackdays (PI/Broadford), temperatures & conditions, aggressive street and the very occasional pillion.

    What have people read/personally recommend?

    (I've been through Dave Moss and his excellent youtubes)

  2. + 1 - I'd also be interested. I am a member (and occasional visitor to) the Independent Suspension Set-up forum, but there isn't a lot of traffic, and simple questions are usually ignored by the experts. They chit-chat between themselves a little, but it's over my head.

  3. Race techs book is very good.

    Just my opinion, but I wouldn't get too carried away with dave moss, there's quite a few holes in his ideas.

  4. Scratch Race Tech's book unless you want to service your suspension, too many pages (for me) devoted to workshop activities.

  5. +1 to race techs stuff. Yup it is detailed, but if your going to set up for track work, and will be pushing for tenths of a second...it's a lot more than just screwing with the clickers to get the bump, bound and balance right
