What is the ideal load setting for a bike?

The rear sag setting is the most important measurement for preload. You should aim for 30mm for street use and 25mm for the track.

What amount of preload should I use?

Preload in the front and rear is a good starting point for most applications. We check other factors to make sure you have an ideal spring rate.

I don't know if I want more or less preload

The compression of the internal spring in the fork is what causes it. The fork will feel stiff if it is compressed more. Lighter riders should use less preload and heavier riders should use bigger preload.

How much preload is too much?

It is a good sign that you are relying on preload too much if the bike is not under its own weight. If you don't ride the bike for 5% or so, you can reach the desired 25% sag with the bike in normal riding position.

What does preload do?

Preload is used to adjust the shock or spring to the correct range of operation within the suspension's travel, keeping you near the top of its travel. The bike sits closer to the bottom of its suspension travel with less preload.

Does preload affect the ride?

The myth is that preload affects spring rates. The short answer is that preload won't make a spring any stiffer, and it won't make it any softer, but all you want to know is why you've been told the opposite.

Does adding preload increase?

When you tighten up/add more preload to the spring, it not only decreases rider sag, but it also decreases static sag as well. The more you load the spring, the more you push the seat upwards. The smaller the numbers, the higher the seat is.

How does Preload work?

As soon as possible, link rel=”preload”> tells the browser to download and cache a resource. You want to speed it up when you need that resource a few seconds after you load the page. After you download the resource, the browser doesn't do anything.

How can I modify my suspension?

Softening the suspension with shock absorbers that are made for comfort is an easy way to do it. Air Suspension can be installed on your vehicle if it has a suspension system.

What is the difference between static and sag?

If the bike weight is less than the rider's weight, the suspension does not compress under the bikes weight, which is called static, or free sag.

How does preload affect you?

Preload affects your suspension. Preload causes the end of the motorcycle to rise. It doesn't adjust the suspension's rigidity. When you crank up the preload, it's due to the reduced sag.

Reducing preload means what?

The Frank-Starling mechanism affects ventricular stroke volume by changes in ventricular preload. Increased preload increases stroke volume while decreased preload decreases it.

How do bump springs work?

A stacked spring is not a bump spring. It acts like the inner spring in a dual valve spring set. The main spring rate from this point on is added by the bump spring rate. You will travel the suspension again.

What should my rider do?

Depending on the bike you intend to use it can range from 25mm to 40mm. Aim for 30mm for street use and 25mm for track use. 9 Adding or removing spring preload front and rear is how the amount is adjusted.

Does preload affect the rate?

Preload and high preload dramatically reduce shock performance over smaller bumps and make for a more harsh ride and worse traction.

The front and rear should be the same

The back should be 25% of travel, while the front should be about 30%. For most bikes, that works out to be 30-40mm at the front and 25-35mm at the back.

Is the ride height affected by rear preload?

The motorcycle's ride height is determined by adjusting preload. The ride height is too high. If you are vertically challenged you may have trouble reaching the ground because the bike rides near the top of its suspension travel.

Does preload affect travel?

Preload doesn't affect spring rate at all. In most cases, it serves to reduce travel.
