Suspension baseline

Ive been thinking, and a little bored lately

I want to do a baseline suspension sag setup on my bike.

The other day I changed over to the galfer superbike frontbrake lines and was testing in front of the house them to what the difference in feel was. Anyways, id get up to about 35-40 and roll into the brakes. at the third try I was getting into it hard enough to barely lift the rear but it felt like the front end was either bottomed and actually was pogoing a bit, that is a sign that the front end s right on the ragged edge of locking completely right?

I was looking at the wiper line on the fork tube and Im definately using up the vast majority if not all of the available travel doing this.

Could someone help me out with doing a baseline on my bike at some point.

Make sure your knees and elbows are on level surfaces

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Talk to Marshall at Turn One Racing they charge $45 and can give ALOT of information to you.

Sklossmonster I believe is his screen name on here


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

for the rear they recommend 7.61kg/mm and stock is 8.6kg/mm

for the front im about as close as possible but the back is a full kg off
