Putnam 5/4 - need a little help

For anyone going to Putnam on Sunday, I need some help getting my sag reset after rebuilding my forks. I would like to do this as early as possible after registration.

I'll also be at the Cloverdale campground Saturday night, so it could be done then if I take the bike off the trailer.

Thanks

I'm sure if you find the right person they will help you out.

Sorry, I'm not the right person, but a CR set mine earlier this year. Remember, sag is just a baseline, after that, you still need to adjust it a little bit to get what you want.

Turn One Racing is the trackside vendor and support for NESBA's midwest region. They would be happy to help you with your setup. Talk to Tom or Marshall and they will hook you up. Turn One is a great group of guys

Keep in mind, that it will be better to get the fork oil nice and warm before you set the sag. MAybe do a few sessions first, then get it setup.

Good point Ron

I have the settings back to what they were before I rebuilt the forks, so they're at least close. I'll get with Marshall when I go to get my new tires mounted.
