[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Suspension feels too hard, ride is harsh and travel not being used[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]SOLUTION[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Rear – reduce compression damping, reduce spring preload or change spring /spring rate.[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Front – reduce compression damping and change springs / spring rate.[/font]
[font=Poppins, sans-serif]–[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]PROBLEM[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Suspension feels too soft, bike is unstable and bike bottoms out[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]SOLUTION[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Rear – increase the compression damping, increase spring preload or change spring / spring rate[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Front – Increase compression damping or change springs /spring rate[/font]
CORNERING
[font=Abel, sans-serif]PROBLEM[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Bike loses traction and breaks away[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]SOLUTION  [/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Rear – back off the rebound, reduce spring rate[/font]
[font=Abel, sans-serif]Front – back off rebound, raise forks through the clamps to reduce steering angle[/font]
