Ive never done so before but I'd like to fuddle with it. I don't know the previous owner nor the current settings as it came from a dealership. I'm 6'2 and weight in at 220 without clothing or motorcycle gear so I'm probably heavier then what the dealership adjusted the suspension to after its last owner (if they even bothered?) but im not too familiar with how to do it, nor where to start and feel for.
i mountiain bike so i am familiar with travel and preload to a degree, but all that means to me is how mushy or how firm (how far the handbars dip) when recovering from a jump or root/rocks.
im sure its far more important on a motorcycle for control and feel, but i dont have any other experience on a motorcycle to compare it except for my BMW R850R which I owned to long ago to have a by feel comparisson to this zzrbikes.
right now it seems ok, alittle firm on bumps but not unconfortable... very smooth otherwise on the highway but it feels lose around corners in the rear sometimes, just not stable track its going to hold feeling the beemer had. the roads are horrible in NJ, expecially in my area but its rather unerving (more so then i remember on the bmw) on corners... just raises the hairs on my arms. might just be age catching upto me, but i was wondering if it could just be a suspension adjustment issue. ive read alot online from people that just swear by proper suspension setup causing night/day changes in overall feel.
