Front suspension
« on: March 26, 2017, 10:16:44 AM »
Common complaint is front forks on standard setting a bit too soft esp under braking. I agree so have put on some more compression damping - 4 clicks. Will try that for a while and do notice the difference so far. Thought it would be worthwhile having a specific topic on it. ps I find the handling very good and it really tracks and holds the line very well even on bumpy surfaces.  :062:

Hi D8ona.
When you say you have added clicks.....which way are you turning the compressor adjuster?
The way i read and understand it the standard is 8 clicks back from fully compressed so I have turned my LH fork 3 clicks clockwise so really it is 5 back from fully compressed.
Have I done this the right way. I can't notice the diffence and it still dives?

Hi Yes that is what I have done - 4 clicks so now at 4 off.  I probably find it slightly too hard so 5 or 6 off maybe  better.  The forks will still always dive under braking.  Depends what bike you were used to but I deffo notice a difference compared to standard - 8. The black art of  suspension adjustment. Maybe you could try a bit more preload as well??

Ok great thanks. The preload adjuster nuts don't click so will it be a full turn (360 deg) ??
