Why Your Sportsbike Suspension Set-Up Is Key

The 2013 Honda CBR1000RR comes with the highest-quality, most-adjustable suspension of any Japanese sportsbike right now. A perfect basis for a discussion on individual sportbike suspension set-up with guru Andy Palmer.

    Wish I could find a suspension specialist in New England that could help tune my bike for pothole dodging and tourist avoidance.

        Thanks, I am only about two hours from Boston. Might be worth the trip.

    I really like the advice to get it set up right with a stock suspension before buying GoFastParts.
    Most riders miss that.

      Too true. The very first thing I would now do on a new bike is to get the suspension setup and get it dyno tuned. Massive difference between stock and a good tune.

    The great thing about this kind of setup is that it’s very inexpensive – Metric Method in so cal charges just 20 bux for it.

    The other day I got passed on the outside around a freeway on-ramp near where this was shot by a guy on a new CBR 1000 wearing bright red leathers. Hmmm.

      That sounds dangerous and dickish. There’s no way it could have been Adey.
