Motorcycle Suspension: Spring Basics

Getting your motorcycle spring setup tuned correctly depends on many factors like rider weight and experience level, the weight of a passenger, or varying terrains such as potholes and railroad track crossings.

As a result, choosing the best motorcycle spring setup can be a lesson in compromise. For example, while a soft spring could provide maximum grip levels for the tires to maintain traction, a stiffer spring may provide better support to keep the chassis geometry in the sweet spot where turning capabilities are at their best.

In this on-demand webinar, we will do a live demonstration with a bike and rider and take you through some of the basics of managing your spring setup. This webinar will help you make sense of each adjustment, and how they will affect the feel and performance of your suspension.
