That should get you in the ball park for baseline settings. Then adjust from there.

Re: 08 R6 180-190 Adjustment

So I took that whole suspension setup guide to heart and tried to set the sag on my bike. It didn't work out....

I now have Íhlins 30mm carts and a TTX rear shock and I'm running 42mm front & 28mm rear sag and it rides like a dream.

I just wish I had tried setting the sag of the oem stuff like I did my Íhlins... 🤷🏼*♂️

I always thought it was supposed to be the same sag front and back, I was wrong....

Well I adjusted the trail. I ended up with about 523mm. It was a big adjustment for me. The bike felt like it was steering like a boat for the first two sessions until I got used to it. Running 30mm F & R Rider Sag. Stock suspension. With the adjustments I needed to take out some low speed compression on the front and a click softer on the rear rebound on my home track. It is quite bumpy and tight (2.2km).

Once adjusted I felt alot more stable in the corners and had more clearance. Good feel too. First time on the 190 Dunlops and ended up running about 3 seconds a lap quicker.

I think this setup will work well on the bigger tracks like Phillip Island and Eastern Creek.

Re: 08 R6 180-190 Adjustment

After another day on the new fork height I feel it still understeers more than I would like. The bike is very stable, so it is just about finding that happy medium for me. I have backed off the fork height to 520mm (-3mm) for the next day to see how that goes. Preload and rebound is fine.

Re: 08 R6 180-190 Adjustment

So I got to test 520mm fork height at the track and it was pretty much perfect. I lost the steering like a boat feeling it had at 523mm, but kept the stability.

I'm pretty happy with the stock front fork performance generally, but no matter what I do the rear doesn't seem to work well.

If your running 30mm front and rear, try running 20-25mm in the rear and 30mm front.

Re: 08 R6 180-190 Adjustment

Yeh, I'm not real keen on that idea. The sag on the rear is about right. The compliance is not. Stiffening up the rear would make the problem worse. I haven no problem with turn in or stability now so am not chasing geometry changes, just rear compliance.
