Iím new to the forum, I purchased my 2014 899 back in December, and Iíve been lurking around here reading posts and trying to learn as much as I can.
I purchased the bike from a track enthusiast, so please ignore the fairings itís an 899. The previous owner used the knockoff 1199 fairings strictly for the track. Iím in the process of servicing the bike and switching back to the original fairings.
Iím trying to set up the suspension so it can suit my weight (140 pounds/ 64 KG), the previous owner was around 180 pounds/ 82 KG and had the bike in track settings.
I read the manual but Iím a bit unclear about some of the instructions, I would really appreciate some feedback on this,
1. When turning the adjusters (1) rebound and (2) compression fully clockwise and obtaining ď0Ē position, is that ďPosition 0Ē considered the ďfully closedĒ position
2. Preload setting; does fully turning the hex clockwise achieve the fully open position?
3. The rear shock, does turning the settings fully clockwise achieve the closed position?
Final question, to appropriately adjust the Sag and before doing all the measuring, in what suspension settings do I need to have the bike?
