MARTIN HAGON’S THREE TOP TIPS

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - On The Bench -

01

When re­plac­ing your shock, pay at­ten­tion to the link­ages and their bear­ings as well as the swingarm bear­ings. Aside from get­ting the best from your new shock there’s the safety is­sue too.

02

Air gap is the most re­li­able way of get­ting the cor­rect amount of oil in your forks, es­pe­cially as get­ting all the old oil out oth­er­wise means a com­plete strip­down. Man­u­fac­tur­ers rarely fit oil drain screws on forks these days.

03

When mak­ing ad­just­ments, work in small in­cre­ments and ride around a bit on the new set­tings as things al­ways take a lit­tle time to set­tle down.
