Had my bike professionally setup

By TW suspension in Preston.

Best 40 I've spent on a bike. I thought my setup was good already. He's turned my butter knife into a scalpel. Ride in/out service.

If you're in the North West of England I can recommend without reservation.

It would be useful to other owners if you could share what was done to your bike? I assume it was a case of setting up the standard components rather than fitting different units?

Yes, standard kit - however I'm not sure that suspension settings are transferable between people - as weight and position on bike where all measured.

I will check out what settings mine are on tomorrow and post here - however, the fact that mine has been lowered and the forks dropped through the yoke also will change things.

Bear in mind that my bike has been lowered by a suspension linkage.
All units are in 180degree turns
Front:

Compression out: 4
Rebound out: 3 1/2
Preload (in) Left fork 15, right fork 15 1/4
21mm of fork showing above the yoke - measured at where the clamp has its join

Rear:
Compression out (top) 3 1/4
Rebound out 4 1/2
Preload 31mm

21mm drop? Wow. What do you weigh? Sorry to be personal.

What does that have to do with rider weight?

Rider weight is compensated for by spring rate and preload...not how much the fork tube is protruding from the yoke.

Manic,

Thanks for sharing your set up very interesting, can i ask did you specifically ask for the bike to be lowered? Front fork pulled up by that amount is a fair amount, how is clearance on front mudguard when hard-on the brakes, also has the leading edge of the fairing grounded?

All good info for owners, and gives others some ideas, not being cheeky but a rough idea of inside leg measurements and you height will be useful as well, and yes I am a short arse before you ask.
