Im having problems with my suspension. I've been reading 3 different variations of how to properly set up suspension. Some say, from the topped out fork to riders weight on bike, should be 10mm and some say 30mm. what do you guys think. BUT what i really dont understand is why bother doing the static sag (no rider, just bike under its own weight)?? After you make sure the bike is within spec, you just add your weight into the equation and change the setting on the bike and get rid of the setting with bike under its own weight. Why not just skip that section? the only reason i can conjure up to do static sag is to see if the springs are up to par holding the bikes weight. Then we add the riders weight and get rid of the static sags settings.
From the reading i got my front fork it at max preload.
A- front topped out
B- bike under its own weight (front)
C- back topped out
D- bike under its own weight (rear)
E- Riders weight on bike (front)
F- Riders weight on bike (rear)
A-E = 20-35mm
C-F = 20-30mm
why the hell is B and D in this equation??
