i have been noticing that i seam to really feel every lil bump on my bike i have the suspension set as per service manual specs and it seams like my bike is really jolted by every lil bump that the suspension should be absorbing according to racetechs calculators it says that my weight should be running a 8.88 n/mm and stock fork springs are 9.25 n/mm according to kawasaki performance catalog they have a 8.75 spring set available and a racetech says to use the spring closest to the 8.88. was wondering your guys input i was thinking bout going with that spring set from kawasaki as then it will allow me to set some preload in the front end

In this order...

1. Ensure you have correct air pressure.

2. Ensure sag is set. If you can't reach the sag numbers, or if you have to add every bit of preload to get close, get springs.

3. Set baseline compression and rebound and dial it in from there.

well i had set up my suspension and set sag but as i recently found out i had too lil preload in the rear so my rear was too soft and causing my front to stiffen up when the rear would cycle. i added preload back into the rear and softened up the compresion on the front just a half turn and that did the trick now my sag is about 90% right and it is handling a lot better as soon as i get it to the track i will have my buddie dial it in 100% thanks
