I am an essential worker in Australia so I have been riding everyday since the media went crazy with the virus!I went for a ride today. One of the most enjoyable rides I've had. Monterey was a bit chilly. Plenty of people "social distancing" at the park lol. Any advice on getting the 16+ to turn in quicker? lol .
It's like a ghost town on night shift on the roads. Still don't know anyone with it or anyone who knows someone with it......
+1 on getting the suspension set up for you. Improves it like night and day. Cost me $40 for my suspension to get setup but that bloke is a legend. Just say how you want it to feel and done. Best $40 I have spent.
This is from RC51.org but I believe the suspension theory & fix is correct if you want to DIY. I have a Honda VTR1000SP1 & Yamaha 2015 R1M as well so I have read alot about bikes. Quicker turn in tips below but do it 1 click at a time.
Forks: Too Much Compression
: Front end rides high through the corners, causing the bike to steer wide. It should ride in the middle of suspension travel.
* Too much compression. Decrease compression "gradually" until bike neither bottoms or rides high.
Shock: Too Much Rebound
: Ride is harsh, suspension control is limited and traction is lost.
: Rear end will pack in, forcing the bike wide in corners, due to rear squat. It will slow steering because front end is riding high.
: When rear end packs in, tires generally will overheat and will skip over bumps.
: When chopping throttle, rear end will tend to skip or hop on entries.
* Too much rebound. Decrease rebound "gradually" until harsh ride is gone and traction is regained. Decrease rebound to keep rear end from packing.
Shock: Lack of Compression
: The bike will not turn in entering a turn.
: With bottoming, control and traction are lost.
: With excessive rear end squat, when accelerating out of corners, the bike will tend to steer wide.
* Insufficient compression. Increase compression "gradually" until traction and control is optimized and/or excessive rear end squat is gone.
It's easier to pay someone and tell them how you want the bike to feel.
