Hey all, I was just curious what the optimal suspension preload is for the motorcycle at my weight.

I weigh approximately 60kg or 132 pound. with no gear on, I believe I'm about 68 or 69kg (149-152 pounds) with all my gear equipped.

The bike is currently set at the standard setting in the 3rd position I believe.

Is the 3rd setting about correct for this weight? Or should I dial it up or down as bit?

The reason I ask is that being very short at 5"3, if it turns out the suspension is too stiff, it means I can potentially make the seat sag a little more and have a better reach to the ground. If not, oh well no big deal.

Thanks guys!

Don't know what setting you need, but I am 207 pounds and I ride with the middle setting, so you could probably back off a bit. Raising the rear wheel off the ground makes turning the adjustment much easier, and you can change the setting around and experiment until you find the right one for you.
