Title: UPDATE:Africa Twin CRF1000l Suspension Settings Help
Post by: plabusch on August 10, 2016, 05:32:29 am
Hi Guys.
Took my new Africa Twin for its maiden trip of 100 km yesterday.
Amazing bike, but will have to adjust the suspension as I'm 6ft2 and weigh 115kg without kit.
Anyone in the same ballpark ,weight wise ,that can give me their suspension settings?
(Some of you guys weigh this much with your pillion)

Thanks!
Pieter.

Yes, I agree I have to lose some more weight!
I'm down from 128kg to 115kg in 6 months.

Ok, sofar I turned the preload on the rear suspension up/harder/clockwise by 5 clicks and it made a big difference.
I also turned the front preload up/harder/clockwise by 1 rotation.
Still fine tuning the front....will keep posting updates.

Baie geluk en heppie km's !! :biggrin: >:D

From what I have read, adding 6 or 7 clicks to the rear pre-load gives a good feed back.
