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.

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.
Paul.

Having trouble setting my suspension on my yz the sag is set cant get the rest to balence out for me im bout 150lbs does anyone noe a good setting for that weight?


In general you want to set sag for around 25-30% of the total suspension travel. Most dirt bikes are around 300mm of travel so set your sag (race sag) at around 85-90mm. Once you have done that, check the sag (static sag) without rider. It should be around 5% or so. If the static sag is more than 5% your spring is too hard. If it's less than 5% or zero then your spring is too light. This applies to both front and rear suspension.

These setting's don't have to be exact but it will definitely get you in the ballpark and help your bike to be balanced between front and rear. Also when you check race sag, you need to be in your natural riding position standing on the pegs wearing all your riding gear.

Hi what are the stock suspension settings for a yzf 750 95 please?? many thanks,andy


You should be able to set the suspension soft or hard depending on what you are comfortable with (probably some where in the middle). Remember , the stock setting was probably for a 125 pound rider. The key thing is to bounce on the bike and make sure the front suspension and the rear suspension drop at the same time. This will give you much greater control during extreme riding conditions whether intended or unintended.

I want to adjust the suspension on my motorcycle, how do i go about doing this?


Take the bike off its stand onto level ground and stand next to it. While holding your motorcycle upright, put one foot on the foot peg next to you and press hard on it. The front and rear of the bike should squash down and raise at the same rate. If not adjust rear damping compression and rebound to compensate

Now you have a comfortable bike with adequate suspension balance. Now let’s fine tune it a bit. Again there are no tricks to setting up your rear wheel suspension, you have to understand what causes your rear suspension to work. Since rebound occurs after compression we will deal with compression first.

Tax disc where to fit/rear suspension pressure setting, 1 & 2 up


I cant help with tax disc, but I can help with the setting of the suspension. The ideal setting for the suspension is to set it so the front and back drop together. If the back is too stiff and the suspension compresses in a corner the front is more prone to breaking loose causing the worst kind of slide . If the front is too hard and the suspension drops in a corner the rear end is more prone to breaking loose. This is not as bad losing grip on the front end, but if word gets out nobody will ride with you as a passenger ever again. Set both front and rear shocks near maximum pressure. Now sitting on the bike with it loaded the way you intend to ride bounce on the seat causing the suspension to drop. Now bleed air out of the front or rear shocks until both the front end and back end of the bike drop together. This is your stiffest safe ride setting. If you start with no pressure in the system and add air until the bike drops with front and back in unison, this will be your softest safe riding setting. Riding single or double requires two different settings. This is how racers set up sport bikes for extreme riding.On a Goldwing you will only need the correct settings for extreme emergency conditions , but of course that is when it has to be predictable and it has to be right. Setting it up correctly will also make cornering through the hills much more enjoyable.

DO YOU KNOW THE STANDARD FRONT & REAR SUSPENSION SETTINGS FOR A ZX6R 2000 MODEL J1 AND HOW DO YOU ALTER IT. 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.
