kcgixflix Posted September 17, 2005 Report Share Posted September 17, 2005 Need help. Unable to set sag on RRs. We have a 900 and a 954RR. When we try to set the sag, the numbers never come out correctly. Over the last couple weeks, I?ve been trying to figure out this problem; I?ve tried online references, contacted dealers and consulted a couple track guys. Nobody has an answer. I?ve only been messing with suspension for a couple years so I?m kinda green, but this shouldn?t be this hard. I got four bikes together to set sag: my gixxer, an R6 and the two RRs mentioned earlier ? all stock. The numbers came out perfectly on my bike and the Yamaha. Going by the numbers (for calculating sag) on the two Hondas, I ended up with maximum preload on front and minimum preload on rear and the numbers were still off. I found it strange that both Hondas reacted the same way. For now, suspension settings are back to stock. Anyone have any ideas? A little background: 1998 900RR and 2003 954RR. Both bikes are stock and in very good condition with stock suspension. Geometry is good for both bikes. Stiction is good for both bikes. Factory suspension settings for a 180lb rider feel way off. Baselines that I?ve acquired from other riders give funky sag numbers. I just don?t get it. I?m relatively certain that I?m using proper procedure for setting sag: backing off damping, taking and calculating the numbers. I did after all, have no problems with the numbers on the non-Honda bikes. Additionally, had the numbers been wrong for only one bike, I?d suspect there were something weird with the bike. This issue although occurs on both bikes and in the exact same way. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
