I have had a circuit guide for a little while, and in it it has various items in it to help tune out some issues with setups.
Given GP Bikes is a Sim, these 'trouble shooting tips' should work here as well to some degree, and will definitely help a newer rider begin a foray into setting up a bike, both on track and in GP Bikes.
So here goes. I will list symptoms that are commonly found in the sim (and on track) and possible fixes for them.
Note: Sometimes there is more than one possible fix, so adjusting one value may not work and fixing one issue may cause another.
I will also hopefully get this a sub-board, and expand this to include terminolgy and such, but for now, this seems to be all that is needed.
Symptom - Forks Top Out
Fixes: Fork Springs too stiff/too much preload/too little oil. (Too light of an oil can be relevant for real world machines but that is not changeable in GP Bikes)
Symptom - Forks Bottom Out
Fixes: Fork springs too soft/too little preload/air gap too small/compression damping too soft
Symptom - Front End Judder(Chatter) in turns:
Fixes: Insufficient Fork Rebound Damping
Symptom - Front End Judder(Chatter) on Brakes:
Fixes: Too much Fork Compression Damping (Real world bikes would also check wheels and brakes for balances/warping/general condition, but generally not an issue in GPB)
Symptom - Rear Wheel Skips on Brakes:
Fixes: Insufficient Rear rebound damping/rear ride height too low/Changing down gears to quickly - Especially 4 Strokes - (Can also be caused by a too low Idle, which does not affect GP Bikes)
Symptom - Bike Weaves Under Hard Braking:
Fixes: Rear Ride height too high/Steering Damper too stiff (Not currently adjustable in GP Bikes, but real world riders may find this useful)/wheels out of line(Again not a thing in GP Bikes, but real world riders may find this useful)/Fork Springs too stiff/front compression damping too hard
Symptom - Bike Wallows or Judders(Chatters) through Turns:
Fixes: Insufficient Rear Rebound Damping
Symptoms - High Speed straight-line weave:
Fixes: Rear Spring Rate too soft/rear rebound too soft/steering damper too stiff (Not currently adjustable in GP Bikes, but real world riders may find this useful)/head races too stiff/rear ride height too low
Symptoms - Bike Unstable at Speed, Prone to Tankslappers:
Fixes: Rear Rebound Damping too soft (Or too stiff, adjust either way to pinpoint), trail too short
Symptoms - Rear Wheel Judders Under Power:
Fixes: Rear Compression Damping too Stiff/Rear Spring Rate too high.

This is perhaps a little controversial one, but Id love to have the OPTION to see the standard 2D dash, (That you seen in chase cam) when I'm riding in first person or VR. Some older Mods, while fun to ride, do not have working dashboards, and can result in a bit of an odd sensation.
While MaxHUD fills this void, it would be nice to have the option for the default period dashboard to show, and be moved to a more appropriate position.
