I have a 2015 F4RRwhich has adjustable suspension front and rear.

I’m new to electronic suspension and wanted to get some advice on what settings it should be set to. I weight about 75kg / 165pound.

Set up would be for everyday riding with some spirited twisties.

I can adjust both the compression and rebound on both front and rear between 0 - 26.

What settings do you recommend.

My recommendation - ask MV what the factory setting are and start at that.


Then set the sag (I assume you can do this with the electrickery?)


If you don't understand that or know what to do .... find someone who does.


I have lost count of how many bikes I have ridden that handled terribly because owners don't know how to adjust suspension or think that setting it up like a race bike is the way to go.


A word of advice / caution ..... if you want to do this properly, be prepared to send money. As I am slightly larger than the average Italian / Japanese jockey, I find that factory springs etc. are not up to the job and often invest in new springs or internals. But good suspension is money well spent and will make you faster and smoother.


Spend money on suspension first and then performance parts.

Thanks Hawk,

As I’m only a little guy 75kg I dont think I’ll have any issue sticking with the factory Ohilns set up.

It’s just what settings I should have and dialing it in.

Agree, Can't go wrong with that.

An alternative is to attend one of the many suspension specialists (preferably on a recommendation) and have it set PRECISELY for YOUR weight and riding style.

Look in your owner's manual for standard settings. Get the static spring pre-load or "sag" set. That part is not usually electronically controlled and should not require any changes for proper ride.

Then pick a stretch of your favorite road and ride it multiple times. First with standard settings, and then making big changes in either direction from standard, one component at a time (rebound or compression damping), paying attention to how each of the changes affect the ride.

Then go back to standard and make small changes to fine tune for your preference based on your new knowledge of how changes affect the handling.

So just realised that to change the suspension settings bike has to be in the “custom” riding mode.

I have a MY13 F4RR and am roughly the same weight as you and I find the standard sag is OK. I have played around with the electronics settings A LOT, and I think you'll find it'd be fun to do so when you have a morning free to try different settings. The one thing that I found most agreeable was to drop the rear suspension height by about 5mm (may be a little less) because it gives the front a bit more feedback/resistance/feel. The stock rear suspension height makes the front quite quick to turn in.
