Free guide to sort your suspension

Published: 26 August 2002

In the latest issue of MCN, out August 28, there’s a FREE 16-page guide to sorting your bike’s suspension.

There’s barely a rider on the planet who couldn’t benefit from a custom fit set-up. What suits a 10-stone test rider on a smooth circuit won’t be ideal for a 15-stone owner on o bumpy British backroad.

In the first week of this special feature we look at sorting the: Aprilia RSV-R, Ducati 998 and ST4, Honda SP-2, Blackbird, CBR600F-S, Kawasaki ZX-6R, Suzuki GSX-R600, Triumph T9551, Sprint ST and TT600 and the Yamaha R6 and FJR1300.

The guide will help you to understand suspension terms and adjustments and help you understand what your bike is telling you every time you brake, corner and accelerate.
