Question about 1999 Honda CBR 600 F(4)X

1 Answer

Have a leaking resevior on rear suspension. my son wanted to soften the suspension on his 1999 honda cbr 600. He used a wrench to back out the screw on the resevior and all the fluid started leaking out. he screwed it back in and it still leaks. What did he mess up? Where is fluid added? Neither one of us has had a bike before.

I have a 1987 cbr 600r Hurricane and i need to know how much air to put in the front forks?

The front forks are adjustable to the type of ride you want. First, set the rear shock to the setting you want soft, medium, or hard. There should be max pressure information in your owners manual and on a sticker on the front forks. Typically the most pressure that can usually be put into a Honda front fork is around 14 PSI. Add, carefully, 10-12 PSI using a hand or foot bicycle pump with a gauge on it. You will probably find this way too stiff. Be careful not to put too much pressure in the forks or you will pop the seals and have to replace them.Then with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride (soft for comfort or hard for two up riding) bounce on the seat. What you want to feel is the front and back suspension dropping at the same time. This is how racers set up there motorcycles for hard cornering. If both the front and rear of the cycle drop together you have an easier time controlling the bike during extreme maneuvers. Since the front is usually stiffer than the back(you added pressure there) slowly bleed the pressure out of the front fork tubes until the the front and back drop together while you are bouncing with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride. Now you are set up for extreme riding conditions. Soft or hard that is how you set up all motorcycle suspensions by balancing the the amount of front cushion/pressure to match the back cushion/pressure.

On the left "side" of the bike, behind the rear cowel. You might be able to get to it by removing the bolt and spreading the cowl. Remove the seat for more clearance.

My suspension is too hard at the rear. Why? all suspension settings are set at their lowest and still it's like riding around with a solid rear end.

Its an older bike. Check your linkage, make sure nothings been overtightened and all the bearings are greased. Run all your clickers in and back them both back out 7 clicks or so. There are both compression and dampening adjusters. One on the cartridge and one down near the linkage.

Need factory suspention settings for CBR600F 1999

hello the front forks are stock as follows.
the preload adjustment should be to where the third groove is shown just above the fork cap.
and the top screw (rebound dampening) turn clockwise till stopped. then out one turn counterclockwise.
then at the bottom of the fork. adjust the compression dampening screw all the way in clockwise then out 1.5 turns counterclockwise.
the same settings are for both forks.
the rear standard preload should be set with a spanner wrench and the 2nd notch from softest is standard.
at the bottom of the shock turn the damper screw in clockwise to stop, then turn out one turn.
and the comp dampening screw on the rear resivoir should be turned all the way in clockwise then turn out once turn counterclockwise.
and those are the stock settings.
thank you.
