Quote from: janaucarre on November 10, 2016, 06:15:57 pmHi,For the spring:I usually make 2-3 laps using max plugin and look if supension go down at the end of course and if yes i level up the suspension until that will be good.Note that the tyres pressure will change, no, the tyre temperature and you will adjust the tyre pressure to obtain the right temperature.Bump=> that define how the suspension absorbs the bump on the road when the fork is compress.Rebound is exactly the oppositePreload is the force needed to begin to compress the fork.

Stiffer springs require more force to compress, and decompress (spring back) with greater force than softer springs.- Bump - Bump Stop is mainly a tool for protecting the chassis when the suspension compresses to it's maximum but because it adds to the spring, there is an effect on suspension behaviour- Rebound - Rebound Dampening dampens (reduces the effect of) the force of spring decompression. This can prevent a "jumpy" front or rear end.- Preload - This preloads the suspension by compressing it. Thus, it increases the force required to compress the spring further without the drawback of the spring decompressing as fast.2. Others : if i decrease or increase the number of these parts- Rake angle - Put very simply: A higher rake angle stretches the distance of the front wheel to the rest of the bike. Doing so makes the bike turn less, but is more stable on straights. Think of choppers like the "Harley Davidsons". Many of their rake angles are quite high.- Front fork height - Raises the front- Rear fork height - Raises the rear- Swing Pivot - Swing arm pivots does what it says. It pivots the swing arm. This will raise the rear height, and among other things, can help make it harder for the bike to wheelie. However, it will also make it easier for the rear to lift off the ground during braking- Swing length - Longer swing arm means more stability in a straight line, but less turning ability- Tyre Pressure - Very simply: Increasing tyre pressure can make it easier to maneuver the bike, and depending on how you do it, grip may or may not get worse. Too low or too high, and you'll have problems

There are some good articles here on suspension adjustment.http://www.sportrider.com/tech/sportbike-suspension-guideYears back(after 5 or 6 years of running around with factory settings) I thought I'd try and set up the wee ZXR for the back road to work. Tweaked things click at a time for a couple of weeks before ending up more or less back where I started. If I learned anything it's that Kawasaki knew what they were doing when then set it up in the first place.
