Tune YouR Suspention

?????

I know that 95% of my riding has always been done on the Street but i am interested in tuning tips for my suspention, i would imagine that the bike is set up from the factory with the best possible combintation for the street, but it would be cool to experiment with some different variences.

considering the thie is the racers lounge i figured i would get the best responses.

If any...

Your imagination is wrong.

Suspensiontunning is an art for me. I wish I knew how to tune but then again I don't mind spending a few bucks and have someone set up a baseline for me.

WHoever you get with, you should ask them what "fine tuning" you can do on your own.

didnt think the height matters chris, just weight haha.
if you cant afford to get Motorcycles Unlimited to do it then watch some of the videos that are around and give it a go. worse that can happen is crash burn and die

Best thing you can do is study and learn about your suspension. Best tuners in the world can only do so much if you can't give them constructive feedback.

That being said, get it set up as a baseline for your weight and riding style, then go from there. Turn one dial at a time, take good notes, and learn what works best for you.

hard to make an educated decision when you do not follow this step

And for most factory suspension, go two clicks at a time. You usually can't feel any difference from one click... but if you do, you can always go back a notch.
