Suspension setup F4i

Hey guys, I recently picked up my '06 F4i and wanted to see if anybody who's really good with suspension setup would help dial-in mine in. I'm willing to pay for it just need it setup good, (not a track bike, but I want it tailored to my weight + the bike when wet). Thanks!

if you want it set for your weight, as in the sag, you can easily measure it yourself with a tape measure and a buddy. You may need to change spring rates depending on your size though.

If you're looking for a full baseline (sag + clickers) most places do it for $40-50, but IMO if you're just riding on the street there isn't much point in trying to dial in your suspension perfectly, your trip to starbucks wont suffer much...

Id beg to differ while you can survive on the street without a baseline done the feel of a bike set up properly vs a bike out of wack is 2 diffrent worlds even on the street.


As to where you are go....im out of luck. Maybe CP Chicago performance can help ya out. Support your local Dealer buddy

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

I'm a huge fan of suspension geometry and would've picked up an RR bike, but I wanted the comfort of a banana seat F4i . I came from a road-race setup Evolution IX so I prefer to have a good solid feel under my throttle regardless of where I drive I want it setup good. Thanks for the input guys! Keep the options for baseline setups coming!

Yeah, F4i's are poop, everyone knows that.

Safetyfirstracing.com can do your suspension too. Kevin is around pretty regularly.
