Suspension Set Up

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by halifax, May 1, 2007.

  1. Hi Guys I did my first track day on the r6 on sunday and kept getting the feeling I could improve if I played with the suspension. So as a result any gurus here that can give me a run down on what effect playing with suspension will have on the handling of the bike

    A few stats if it makes a diference
    Bike- r6
    my height - 185cm (guess)
    weight - 70kg's

    Thanks Everyone
  2. Check http://www.sportrider.com/tech/suspension/ your about 10kg shy of being what the bike has been set up for (Avg rider) but only do one adjustment at a time check test record what u have changed, and move on if needed.
    All i would do is back off very slightly on the Pre load and compression, but one at a time...
