Wonderful Suspension Guides

Found these on another forum, decuded to put them all together as a general reference:

http://www.sportrider.com/tech/146_9508_tech/ Setting Sag

http://www.sportrider.com/tech/suspension/ General setup

http://onthethrottle.tv/ Clicky on the toolbox to watch the Dave Moss Videos on theory and troubleshooting suspension....great series.

And then there's this little decision tree for tuning:

Suspension Settings From Sr Website

Hey Gas Man Please Help Me With This Question! I Am A Newb.

Ok So I Have An 04 Gsxr 750 And On The Sr Website Where It Shows The Best Recommended Settings For My Bike I Am Kind Of Confused. On The Setting For My Front Rebound Dampning It Says ".75 Turn Out". Now Where Is The Starting Point Before I Do Turn .75 Turn Out? On Other Ones It Says To Turn Out From Full Stiff But Not On Mine. And Is Out Clockwise Or Counter Clockwise? Please Help Me Out As My Settings Currently Suck Real Bad. Thanks You The Man. The Gas Man Lol!

I believe on the sport rider settings... .75 turn out is from the stock set pt. Cause it sounds like if they wanted it full seated then spun out.. they say from full stiff x turns out. Your stock set pts should be listed in your owners manual. The owners manual will probably list them from full stiff or fully closed and how many turns each one has.

Out = counter clockwise
IN = clockwise

I screwed IN the bolt. As in you tightened it.

I don't remember... so I hate to say... damn CRS

All that good info will be in your owners manual though... find that... and/or tell us what bike and maybe somebody else will look it up for you.
