preload settings on TVL

Hi ALL,

I still have troubles with my front suspension ...

The fork starts "bouncing/weaving" from 170kms/h with the windshild up ! less when it's down actually ...

I checked for the front & back preload settings in TVL Owners Handbook but I did not find them.
Not sure how the previous owner adjusted them so, I just want to put them back to default, just to try ..

Who can help me to set them back to default ?

FYI, tires are new and pressures are fine.

THX

front & back preload settings in TVL Owners Handbook

Looks perfectly clear to me.

I'm just back from BCN
the TV is a month old and over 6 000 km
apart from wind buffeting near van, crate-shaped SUV or camper it doesn't float or anything.

The front shocks are even surprisingly good.
OK the Stradale was much better.

The road to Castellar de n'Hug being a test for suspension, chassis and tires.

Grilled probably from a few second, as my first upload did not worked. I'm not sure why the front shocks got so bad press as well on the TV. Have no complains on it. I have no clue for the TVL, but I made the comment earlier that preload is what is not set electronically on the TVL, and it may be worth considering adjustment... Sport mode rules, maybe

On the topic of the front forks, has anyone attempted to adjust the forks in the triple clamps to an alternative position (either up down)?

I just looked at my TVL and noticed that my forks are positioned in the triple clamps lower or slid down (only 1 line showing above the top triple clamp) than the photo posted above showing the front pre-load location on the bike.

I've used fork position on my enduro for offroad use to accommodate the ride environment (ie lower forks for the sand dunes to chopper it out) and raise the forks for single track to improve steering quickness and precision.

My forks on the TVL have not been adjusted by me but they appear to be in a different position than the photo indicates for preload setting location.

Guess I need to dig into the shop manual and see what I can find about fork height and to determine what stock position should be.

follow up from the shop manual..

Appears that the fork height differs between the TV and TVL. I copied the page in the shop manual for positioning the forks in the triple clamps after servicing.





Took a quick measure and my TVL is set at 237 MM however at this position they differ from what the owners manual shows for position in the photo when referencing the preload location.

THX for ALL the replies Guys !

Well, it seems that I've got TV/TV-ED1 handbook, that's why.

Just to be sure ... I think I have to start from "open" position and turn clockwize for both, right ?

Back from a 2700kms trip in Sardinia, apart from the GPS fault I was always in trouble with my suspensions, Fully loaded or not I never managed to get them as I like, always too soft for me, especially the front.

There is really room for improvement on that topic in my opinion !
