Some useful advice in advance

  1. Different dirtbikes have different suspensions. First, you should inform yourself about your bike and check which type of suspension (air spring / steel spring) is installed on your bike. The manual will definitely help you.
  2. Whether your suspension works well doesn't only depend on the right adjustment, but especially on the maintenance condition of your suspension. Check when the last suspension service of your bike was done. Dry fork seals and old damping oil can be reasons your suspension doesn't work as desired.
  3. Use the right tools so that your adjusting screws don't get worn unnecessarily.
  4. It is advisable to take notes of the fine tuning of your suspension. This way you can start from your basic setting and adapt your bike to different track conditions (hard ground, sand, mud, etc.) without losing track.
