TV 800 suspension settings.

Folks, does anyone have the base settings for the front and rear suspension on the TV. I couldn't find them anywhere in the manual and even the dealer hasn't been able to confirm with MV yet. I have taken them from a new bike in their show room for the moment. The manual seems to give you the adjustment from the base but not the base! Unless I am reading it wrong.

Also I wouldn't mind knowing what sort of settings you guys find works best for you? I am 210 lbs and find the rear needs 10 -12 clicks of preload to get to a better place. Other than that I haven't tried anything on the front or anything else from base.

Cheers for the input

Dave

Well you mean the rear suspension I guess...

That's easy :-)

1 Person = Standard
1 Person + 1 luggage = +5
2 Person = +15
2 Person + 2 luggage = +25

so 1 Person is = 15
1 luggage is = 5

turn the knob counter clockwise to the end and then 15 klicks will be the "Standard".

the "Standard is defined with a Person of 75 KG or 165 lbs.
if you are a bit heavier so maybe 18-20 klicks is "YOUR" Standard. You have to test it for your own convenience.

Gero that covers the preloaded adjustment, it does not relate to the compression and rebound damping. I am a bit reluctant to tell people what works for Jen my wife who mainly rides solo with luggage. She does tend to use the bike in a rather more sporty mode than most, suffice to say the rear shock needed a bit more compression and rebound dialed in to suit.

Hi jimboF4,
yes you are absolutely right. vfrbhoy was asking for the standard settings, for the front it says in the manual what are the standard is. But for the rear it doesn't say clearly what the standard is. You just have to calculate. And from there you can go where ever you like. I've done it this way and it seems perfectly for me.
I've got the Lusso so I don't need to set up the front

The standard is in the manual for the front and for the rear rebound/compression as well. The only thing missing is the spring preload for the rear. I have mine midway between soft/hard and am paying around with it to see if I notice any differences.

I also tuned my front for the sport setting and it handles much better!!

It becomes fairly difficult to do the correct settings. In my case, I wonder sporty settings but I have'nt reached for the time being. Front forks are quite good but rear suspension is disapointing, too soft. Also is noticeable that the compression is really complicated to adjust, its access is almost impossible.

Thanks for the input guys. I kind of follow the logic. It seems to me that the "standard" on preload of the rear might have had some table based on rider weights or something. That's also the view of my dealer and they have been in contact with MV but no joy. All of the new TVs they have received from the factory at "standard" setting for preload were 7.5 lines (6 clicks) from fully wound out. D

I've done my "preload" of 17 klicks, with all my gear my weight is 78KG (172 lb)
and it is perfect for me...
after that, just do the klicks I've said before for more weight .....
If you got the Lusso as well, just change the settings on the dash and it will make a big change!!

cheers from Hamburg ... :-)

By no means have I concluded making adjustments (as if we ever would...) but found the rear of my TVL to softly sprung as it came from the showroom. Wound it all the way out then 15 clicks in and it improved a lot. Was previously on something like 7 clicks in.

As Gero says the TVL doesn't have physical damping and rebound adjustment, only different suspension modes. The front does have preload on the top of the right leg but I'm reasonably happy with that. Forthcoming tour will give time for experimentation for further tuning.

For the first time ever I'm tempted to get an iSomething just to be able to fiddle further with the suspension and set some of the custom modes (would go back in the drawer afterwards though). However, it seems that the app has now been withdrawn from the app store.
