Triple clamp bolts torque...
Doing minor adjustments on fork height and wondering if possible to bend fork tubes by too tight on fork clamps or is there a block or something in fork tube to reinforce in area. Is it possible to torque the bolts without taking all surroundings off?
Not overly concerned but I just did and has been my third time for fine tuning suspension character. All the little adjusting makes a world of a difference. My first bike I've been able to fiddle with adjustable suspension so took me a while to get a feel for it. I think I'm going to have to fiddle a little more with front end height. Would love to have more ease of rear preload, rather than knocking at the lock ring.
Anyone have a lot of suspension tuning experience have any characters of the 14 that could be shared also?
I just went back to stock bar height (had genmars on) and get a little more tiredness (not really soreness) in arms and back but very well worth the handling improvement. Bike just plain handles better with more weight on front. In some ways, it is more comfortable because it feels more like a sportbike so it's easier to ride it that way.
