Load the bike and sit on it. Now bounce up and down. You want the front and back of the bike to drop together. If the front drops first on a hard corner and you hit a slippery spot the front of the bike might wash out. If the back drops first in the same situation, the back might skid out , a little easier to recover from, but still dangerous.If you are able to adjust both front and rear, you should be able to set up a perfect soft ride or firm ride. If you can only adjust the rear, than you want to adjust the drop in the back to match the fork drop. This is how the racers set up there sport bikes for hard cornering , but it works for all styles of riding.

Tip

Susspension set up for Motorcross bikes


When I need to set up a motorcross bikes suspension I set all the settings (both rebound & compression) to the middle of the range on both the front suspension & the rear suspension

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the rear mudguard and the top of the rear tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 20mm. If not adjust rear spring pre-load to correct.

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the front mudguard and the top of the front tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 15mm. If not adjust front spring pre-load to correct.(if adjustable).

This gives you your starting point for the fine tuning with the dampening adjustments to suit the riders preferances.

How do i adjust the suspension? or what do i do the bike is too high for me.


Generally you don't adjust suspension on motorcycles for the height of the rider. You make suspension adjustments for the weight of a rider by making it softer or firmer.
You can lower the front by moving forks up through the triple trees and the rear by using shorter shocks. But by doing this you are changing the steering geometry and suspension travel that has been designed for your bike.
If you already know how to ride a motorcycle you are better of working out a way to mount the bike with out lowering it. If you are learning how to ride, buy or borrow another bike until you have learnt the basics.
I have seen children racing motorcycles that use blocks or have people hold them up for the start.

Hi. My Toyota Camry 1995 was failed in Rear Breaks test on breaks' capacity measuring machine by NZ Vehicle Testing despite replacing Break Drums and Break Pads with new ones. The cuase is adhered to...


The prop/valve is located near the rear of the car and is inbetween the front brakes and the rear brakes.It's job is to adjust the braking force between the front and rear wheels.If only one person is in the car,you get more braking force at the front wheels.If you have 4 people in the car and the boot is full of luggage,you will get more brake force directed to the rear brakes.What it prevents is the car from spinning out from a rear wheel lockup.
It will be located by looking at the rear suspension.A smallish metal rod will connect the suspension to the chassis of the car and it will be hooked up with the brake lines.As weight is loaded to the rear suspension,the rod will slightly move a small lever on the prop/valve.This is where you will see the adjustment.
Hope this helps you

Adjusting twin cam back shocks the best setting


There is no single "best setting". It depends on you and your riding style. Heavier riders sometimes need a stiffer suspension. Same goes with those that do a lot of "Two Up" riding. Some riders seem to prefer a stiffer suspension because of their riding style. While others want the nice soft ride. The adjustment of the shocks is a personal type adjustment. Just try different positions under different conditions until you find the best for you.

Good Luck

Rear suspension stuck down. 96 crown victoria


these cars try to compensate for weight so the car will deflat the system to lower the rear when jacked up so when you put the car back down it almost touches the ground like a low rider, i think this is what you mean by suspension stuck down?? so all you have to do is start it. it should automatically adjust its self to the right inflation.bringing the car back up to position

Recomende tire pressure touring motorcycle


Generally I put the front and rear tires @ 40 psi. You get better gas mileage , plus it rolls better when you have to push it around, but you also get better tire wear. I would set your rear air suspension around 12 -15 psi.
