K-TECH SUSPENSION WISDOM
K-Tech’s James Harpham reckons:
“Sag on the R1M is set well to begin with – 30mm at the front and 14mm back doesn’t warrant a change at all for the track. After trying the semi-active settings, we switched to the Manual ‘T1’ mode, which is softly damped at both ends for the track, and even adjusted it might become an issue when it gets hot and the oil thins out – Michael didn’t have any grief today but it’s something to keep an eye on.
“Front compression was closed from 16 to eight, and rebound from 16 to 10. Compression at the back was better, and we only reduced it to 10, from 13 as standard. The rebound was quite open at 17, and I closed that to 10. They’re a very responsive set of adjusters – you can feel each increment, as well as hearing the servos turning inside.”
James was gratified to feel – and hear – his changes
