I realize theres many different types and bikes but even just an average or most common picture would help. Thanks!
Anyone have pics?

Re: Definition of preload, rebound and compression

Need some help guys.

So I've lowered my bike and my front tire is rubbing against my radiator cage. If I stiffen my preload will that help avoid the problem?

It's currently showing 5 lines. I was going to adjust it to 2 visible lines.

Most likely it's because even though the take is pretty vertical on the R6 it's probably drawing the front tire to rearward into the radiator.

Unless it's only hitting when the forks are compressed which preload would help but would ruin both rideability and traction of the front tire.

Yes, only during compression. I'm rolling stoppies. When the tire hits the rad cage it causes me to wash out. Pretty scary at 30-40 mph.

It potentially could help but the tire may not follow the contour of the road being made so stiff. Which would also effect braking traction to initiate the stoppie.

I'll make some adjustments tonight and see what works.

Re: THis is for your rear shock

Thanks a lot, this really helped me dial in suspension settings. It's great how you fully explained everything so well and the precise location of each setup. Thanks again.
