Setting Rider Sag

FRONT SAG

1. Place a ty-wrap around your fork tube just above the dust cap (or just below depending on what type of forks you have). Make it snug but not too tight so it can move freely but stay in place.

2. Sit on the bike (in full gear for exact measurement) with someone holding it up in the riding position. This will move the ty-wrap up (or down) to its most compressed position.

3. Get off the bike (easy), put down sidestand, pull the bike towards you and back so the front wheel is off the ground (you can do this with a little practice) and have someone measure the distance between the ty-wrap and the dust cover.

4. This measurement is your front sag based upon your weight. It should be ~34mm-38mm (34-track 38-street).

5. Adjust your front preload as needed to make this correct (see owner's manual).

REAR SAG

1. Place a small piece of tape on the side of your tail section (sprocket side) straight up from your rear axle. This will be your reference point so make sure it is as straight up/down from the axle as possible and maybe mark a dot or something with a pen for accuracy.

2. Sit on the bike (in full gear for exact measurement) with someone holding it up in the riding position. (or a Baxley Sport Chock )

3. Have someone measure the distance from the marker down to the rear axle.

4. Get off the bike (easy), put down the sidestand, pull the bike towards you and forward so the rear wheel is off the ground (you can do this with a little practice) and have someone measure the distance from the marker down to the rear axle.

5. Subtract the first measurement from the second measurement and that is your rear sag based upon your weight. It should be ~25mm-32mm (25-track 32-street).

6. Adjust your rear preload as needed to make this correct (see owner's manual).

If you are unable to attain these numbers with preload, you need either a softer spring if you cannot achieve enough sag or a stiffer spring if you have too much.
