Rear suspension setting
The rear suspension setting should be made
depending on the rider's feeling of an actual
run and the circuit conditions.
The rear suspension setting includes the fol-
lowing two factors:
1. Setting of spring preload
Change the set length of the spring.
Change the spring.
2. Setting of damping force
Change the rebound damping.
Change the compression damping.
Choosing set length
1. Place a stand or block under the engine
to put the rear wheel above the floor, and
measure the length a between the rear
wheel axle center and the rear fender
2. Remove the stand or block from the
engine and with a rider astride the seat,
measure the sunken length b between
the rear wheel axle center and the rear
fender holding bolt.
3. Loosen the locknut 1 and make adjust-
ment by turning the spring adjuster 2 to
achieve the standard figure from the sub-
traction of the length b from the length
90 ~ 100 mm (3.5 ~ 3.9 in)
