Thanks for the good video. Suspension is something I need to look at on my bike and this will help me a lot. I also liked the guy's calander in the background.

good video just a word of warning on seting up your suspension always write down any adjustments made incase the bike is worse you will know how to reset it back to the way it was.bought an r1 once went out for the first ride on it and it was tank slapping bar to bar over the smallist bump went home and checked the suspention and everything was wound up to the max.i could have be killed.:headshake

i am really surprised dealerships do not offer this type of service at the time of purchase. seems like it would be safer
