The importance of suspension broken down so even the non-mechanically minded can understand – K-Tech

A highly under valued element of the motorcycle is the suspension but there is so much jargon and tech that it can seem overwhelming. Here I chat through why suspension is so important but in a way that hopefully every motorcycle rider can understand, even those less mechanically minded. Consider it the suspension for dummy’s, breaking down the importance of suspension:

  1. Correct weight spring
  2. Compression and rebound damping
  3. Inner suspension functions
  4. Sag

I spent the day with Michael from K-Tech talking about the importance of suspension and getting my Honda CRF 450 RX set up ready for my new rally riding adventures.
