    Suspension Setup for '12 CBR1000

    (Tried to PM Chad but his box is full)

    Hey Chad,

    Not sure if you're accepting work, but you come highly recommended so I figured I'd give it a shot.

    I just picked up a 2012 CBR1000rr (no ABS) and I love it. Ultimately I'm wanting to start taking it to the track on a regular basis. That being said, the suspension is bone stock and has not been messed with since I bought it new. Just seeing if you're available to help with a quick suspension setup for my demensions (6'2" 195lbs)..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your time,

    Alton

    Set your suspension sag with all of your gear with you on the bike, track gear preferably since it's heavier than street gear.

    beep we can set up your sag and preload in my garage, and try to get ur rebound and compression better set up for you. we will keep adjusting it every time we ride, dialing it in. till you find a pro to help out.

    i got one guy we can take our bikes to he said it will be under 100 bucks to tune the suspension.

    i set my sag my self and been adjusting the other dials as i ride. its been getting better and better with each ride.

    text me im off today if want to set it up

    If you can change your oil you can set your sag. I dont understand why people spend 80 bucks to turn 6 screws and 3 preload rings. it takes like 20 minutes. 10 if you have someone help you
    I will do today what you won't So I can do tomorrow what you can't

    understanding how suspension works is beyond some people, me possible being one of them.

    setting preload & low speed/high speed compression/rebound per a riders riding style isn't as easy as changing oil


    on my bwm i need way more front preload then the manual calls for, i think it has to compensate for the shitty compression the bike comes stock with. i wish it was as simple as changing my oil.

    I had no idea how to do it either and I figured if Eric Gray at GMD makes a living doing it there has to be some skill and special in it at least to do it correctly

    plenty of information online that breaks it down barney stile. just read up on it first. and alwase right down the settings that were already on the bike incase you muff it up, reset it and start over.

    Setting adjustments is not rocket science if you are revalving and going that extra mile then yes but sag and clickers anyone can do if you have the want or willingness to turn some wrenches
