Setting the sag
The race sag is set to insure that the suspension works at its most effective and to keep a good chassis weight balance, front to rear.
Setting your race sag is also the most important set up in affecting your bike’s overall handling traits.
The first step toward determining correct suspension adjustment is to set the rear spring preload, so that the correct rider height, or race sag dimension,
is achieved. You should check this crucial adjustment each time you ride to insure it remains at your determined setting.
For this adjustment procedure, the bike should be brought to normal racing weight – correct fuel, transmission oil and coolant levels. The shock should be cool to the touch, as heat build up will
directly affect your sag.
