K-TECH SUS­PEN­SION WIS­DOM K-Tech’s James Harpham reck­ons:

Performance Bikes (UK) - - RACE LEGEND -

“It a bit soft at the rear for such a pow­er­ful bike, but with an ex­cess of damp­ing. With some preload added to the rear, I backed off the com­pres­sion. No clicks or turns here: just num­bers on a dis­play, where 0 is fully closed – or, in sim­pler terms, max­i­mum damp­ing. Stan­dard rear sag was 18mm, which I re­duced to 13mm with two turns of preload. I backed the com­pres­sion off from eight to 18, and in­creased the re­bound from set­ting six to four.

“The forks came with 30mm of sag, and were left alone. Com­pres­sion was changed from six to 12, and re­bound was left at eight.”
