How To Set Up Your Motorcycle Suspension.
A couple of weeks ago, The Pillion and I went for a ride with The Melting Man to the Natural Arch, during the course of the day the topic of suspension set-up came up.
Now, I’m no expert when it comes to suspension set-up, but I know that getting it wrong can mean the difference between enjoying your riding and absolutely hating it, and the bike you’re on.
There’s noting worse than having your bike want to run wide on a corner, or bounce you off the seat when you hit a dip in the road.
Learning how to set your bike up correctly will not only make your riding more enjoyable, but it will help reduce the incidence of things like premature tyre wear as well.
There are heaps of tutorials available on the topic, but I think an article Mark Hinchliffe over at Motor Bike Writer published recently is one of the easiest to follow.
Mark stated in the article that suspension set-up was “a dark art indeed”.
It needn’t be.
Following Mark’s article will give you a basic understanding of suspension adjustment. You can read Mark’s guide here
