you have setup the correct sag and spring rate for your bike and
weight (see here
for setting race sag) it is then time to take a look at how
your suspension is reacting on the track.
your bikes owners manual and set your compression clickers and
rebound adjusters back to standard settings as a base to work
from. That way if you go too far or lose settings you have somewhere
to go back to.
can be helpful if you have a friend who is knowledgable about
motocross suspension and can tell you what your bike is doing
or if they can film you with a video camera.
the compression clickers to control the feel of your dirt bikes
suspension over small bumps (whether it be too hard and stiff
or soft and mushy) and then how it handles the bigger stuff. Is
your suspension always bottoming or too stiff so as you never
use the full travel available for your suspension.
rebound adjusters can take affect over a series of bumps. Does
the bike "pack down" meaning the suspension gets more
and more compressed over a series of bumps (not enough rebound)?
Or does it tend to kick you in the butt after every bump because
there is too much rebound?
with most adjustments, make changes in small increments after
a few laps of the track.
a bit of time setting up your motocross or dirt bike suspension
and you could reward yourself with a smoother ride, faster laptimes
or save some money on tuning.
you can watch it on video... (please
excuse the audio as it came in with an annoying hum that was difficult
to mix out)
