Suspension setup

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what suggestions I would get for clicker settings on my 4rt 2016 (non repsol). I’m 160lbs of average but aged rider. Sag is set.

As a side note to Oni Nou's advise above:  

After various testing and re-testing of the rear shock rebound adjustment on the Montesa R16V it affects around 90% rebound and approx 10% compression.

Even though it is mainly a rebound adjustment it seems to affect compression also all be it at a much lower rate/effect.

I don't realy believe it was designed to be that way it just is.  

Turn the rebound adjuster to full slow rebound adjustment and see how it affects (slower) compression as well, back it off to a quicker rebound and see how the compression gets quicker also, seems to be somewhat linear.  

Skeptical ???  Run some tests of you own.....

One persons suspension set up is another persons unridable set up. An awful lot depends upon the individuals preferences and the condition of that persons suspension and bike maintenance. As billyt suggests experiment, but do this making small adjustments at a time, ride over the same test area and decide what is best for you, thats why there is provision for adjustment. If we all had the same settings the manufacturere could revert to what the road bike manufactureres do....give you bugger all adjustment and like it. You may even revert to a number of settings for different types of section....a click here..... click there!

There is no one way check valve on the main shim stack so what your adjuster is doing is opening a Bleed hole which happens to Bleed in both directions.  Once the Bleed is clogged up the shims take over, there are way more shims on the rebound side than the compression side so that's why it seems to affect one more than the other. It's a normal arrangement in an adjustable shock.  Race cars have tried check valves to isolate the forces with very little success.  It becomes noisy and friction ridden.  Being aware of it is your best defense.
