exactly.....that's where suspension tuning comes into play the most.

if your suspension is not setup correctly....it does not function correctly. most modern sportbikes have many adjustments....preload, rebound, compression, low speed compression, high speed compression. here's a lil FYI, bikes NEVER come setup from the factory either....they are only set to work half .

if you haven't had a basic suspension setup, you shouldn't waste any time.....go see Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited for the best $25 you'll spend.

Every bike is different, and suspension must be setup to work with your weight and riding style. especially if you like to lean the bike....get that suspension setup. unless you are cruising around in a straight line....then save the $25 and pose on.

I would agree with tony, I had mine done, made a world of difference.

yes, no matter what bike or how new the bike.....suspension must always be setup to work for YOU.

example: i'd really hate to lean the bike, hit a bump or a ripple and have the tires lose contact with the ground because my suspension was setup too tight.

that's why suspension is so important on a bike. especially taking leans....the suspension is supposed to absorb the road.
