Hey everyone, I just got a 01 9R and have been riding it around for a few weeks and am not too thrilled with the way it handles. How do I go about seeting up the suspension? What order do I change adjustments in? I have never set up the suspension on a bike before.
Does anyone one out there have a good setup they can recomend? I am 5'10", 170lbs.

Hey man, I am in the same boat. The suspension on my 03 9r is much stiffer than the it was on my 99 6e. I feel every little bump in the road and my ass almost flies out of the seat. I can't really complain about it, because the bike is newer and does have a better suspension. I am 5'11" and about 185 lbs or so and I need to have my suspension adjusted as well.

whatever you guys do dont go out and buy a new rear shock or new forks youd just be spendin big bucks.sport rider magazine has a website and they answer question like that, about adjusting damping and rebound on forks and shocks
