Suspension Seminar at Durty Nellies

Hey Kids,

Just letting everyone know Turn One Racing will be having a Suspension Seminar on Saturday, Jan. 30th at 3pm at Durty Nellies, before the NESBA Bash.

Durty Nellies is kind enough to let us use their space before the Bash starts to host a seminar for anyone who would like to attend.

The Seminar will start at 3pm, and the Bash starts at 4:30.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

Fundamental Principals of Suspension
How the adjustments work and why
Sag Setting and its importance
Interpreting what the bike is trying to tell you
Communicating what you're feeling to a suspension tuner
Aftermarket components front, rear, and why they work better than stock

There will of course be plenty of Q and A.

Depending on the time available and the people who show up, we may add a Body Position portion to the seminar, as body position fundamentals are more important to suspension than you might think.

For directions: http://www.durtynellies.com

3:00 Durty Nellies. The same place as the bash! Sweet! Spread the word and make sure everyone knows. Your welcome to come for the seminar even if you can't stay for the evening. It's open to everyone! You don't have to be a Nesba member to come out. Best of all....... IT'S FREE!

Thanks Turn One! You rock.

Just a reminder about the Suspension Seminar tomorrow at 3:00 at Durty Nellies. Joe Denowh, regional middleweight champ and certified motorcyle mechanic, and I will be covering the following topics:

Fundamental Principals of Suspension
•Shock Absorption
•Force Damping
•Rider Feedback

How the adjustments work and why
•Compression
•Rebound
•Preload

Sag setting and its importance
•Rider Sag
•Bike Sag
•Total Sag

Interpreting what the bike is trying to tell you
•Visual Cues
•Physical Cues
•Lap Times vs Effort

Communicating what’s happening to a tuner
•What you’re feeling
•Where it’s happening
•When it’s happening

Why we use aftermarket components
•Proper Spring Rates
•Increased Flow and Feel
•Increased Adjustability

Should be a good time, at least for anyone who's idea of a good time is geeking out about motorcycle suspension theory and application.

See you there.

but you would spend less money having him do it if you could do these two things Marshall mentioned.

1. Interpreting what the bike is trying to tell you
2. Communicating what you're feeling to a suspension tuner


Thanks to Turn One for volunteering to put on a great seminar.

It's our pleasure, Brian. I remember all too well what it was like when I was starting out trying to learn about the bike, especially suspension.

Looking forward to it. I just wish we could ride afterwards!

Yes, being able to ride in January is the only thing that has been sweet about working in LA this winter.

Yesterday was in the low 60's when I finally had a chance to get out for a ride at sunset. Grooved freeway pavement along with cold pavement and tires leads to a lot of slippage. Nothing like taking a curve at LA highway speeds and slowly sliding to the outside of the curve in my lane while at lean. Kinda cool once you get used to it.

See you guys tomorrow!

Craig
