SOURCE: Adjusting suspension

hi there,,if u can see a air valve on top of the forks, then u can use a bicycle or foot pump to squeeze a bit more air to the fork,, or if there is an adjuster on the fork,ie, a plastic lookin cap with 1 2 3 4 and a arrow on it u can turn that to a comfortable position,, if there is nothing u can see, then u either have not enuff fork oil in each fork leg,,or if there is enuff,, u will need to change the grade of fork oil and replace wots in it,, so id say a more harder grade of oil,, usually there isnt enuff oil in the forks to make it dive into the front wheel,, try topping the oil up,,with about,4or 5 egg cup fulls of oil in each leg,,if nothing has made any difference,, put in another 4 or 5 ,,,any probs on how u put oil in2 the legs ,please do come back in ,and il tell u how 2,, im assuming u do no,, ok ,,cheers

What are standard settings on an 2010 MV Agusta F4 1000 R

Hi First I would get someone to hold the bike upright then go to the rear of the bike and lift the rear end to see if there is any play if so using the adjuster nuts with a C spanner wind down the rear spring to take up the play, yours should be ok as its a 2010 model. Push the rear of the bike down and see how quick the suspension returns, on our roads it wants to return quickly. The reason you want the suspension returning quickly so its ready for the next bump. Making it return two slow gives it a hard ride. Make the forks return quickly also. See how you go and if not happy experiment. No bike manufacturer can set the suspension for all roads. Good luck.

What is the maximum weight load?

There is no real correct "max" weight. The bikes suspension travel will produce limits in handling and top speed as the weight increases, It should be able to carry to 2 adults with ease, say 180kg, If you are carrying big loads, then additional tyre pressure would be advisable. Upgrades in rear spring rates would be advisable also if you intend to do touring with heavy loads. You can get a full service manual here for the correct pressures to run and suspension adjustments you can make for high loads. Cheers

Rear suspension settings are adjusted via the suspension mechanism located under the bike near the main rear suspension spring on the underneath of bike parallel with the seat- looks like a can (like a slim beer can) and there is a screw one way to tighten and one way to loosen. Dont know settings but try it out one way then the other. Simple turn the screw according to direction arrows.
