I'm sorry Adalgood, I'm not sure we understand what your asking there?  Maybe if you ask a more specific question we could help you.  ;)

Reads like hes asking for someone to explain the parts that are adjustable on the bike in the setting and how they effect the bike in general?
Help me, help you!

That is a good question and something I'd like to know too......
It's not the "rake" because that's already there....

It brings to mind the forks being offset to the side but I cannot believe that surely??? That would be weird! Hehe  ;D


Aaarh! I think I know what it is!!!!  It will be the adjustment for shortening or lengthening the fork tubes inside the fork yokes, for want of a better way to describe it. Thank you for bringing this up Adalgood, I'll have to give this a try because this should really have an effect on handling! Nice one!  ;D 8)

I had to look it up. Rake and Trail I was happy with, offset not so. I found this pretty good explanation?

Thanks Nick!  ;D 8)

Best way to learn is to just try it all out! Go to the extremes and see what happens then and go to opposite extreme (lowest and highest setting) and just try it out, slowly you will get an idea of what works on what problems :)
 I learned it the tough way on my 125GP and Moto3 bike, learning by doing and taking some chances with the setup to see i went in the right direction, paid off much better than people telling me all the fancy words haha (learned those afterwards)

Yeah !! Thank you very much to all !! Now I'll try playing track ends to feel what effect generated on the bike.

Already I think an increase in offset should cause a reduction in trail, so a more nimble bike but less stable on the straight, but in game it seems to be opposite hahahaahaa maybe I measure from the wrong point or backwards or something. (Engine Braking phenomenomenona)  ;D

Increase in offset will cause an increase in trail too as you see in the illustration linked by Adal.
It shows it pretty well what the offset is :)
