Been riding the 9'er as set up by the dealer. I decided to increase the setting on the shock to 3 instead of 2. I went with a firmer setting on both the front suspension adjustments. Haven't ridden it yet to know what changed.
Anyone who rides a 919 who weighs around 185 lb that wanted to tighten up their handling over the "stock" recommended settings, without inducing overt harshness, care to comment on how they have their suspensions set up?
I'm interested in unmodified 919's and your settings, with your comments about results.
04+? 3-4 sounds about right. crank your front preload all the way in though, rebound: start with 1 1/2-1 3/4 turns out of fully closed (close the rebound until stop clockwise, open 1 1/2 turns). do not force the rebound needle, once it stops - it's closed.
This is as good as you can get with stock setup for 185-190lbs
