Bouncy rear suspension after adjusting front suspension and rebound damping
Hell, this is not nice
My bike: V-650 2018.
My weight: 110kg/240lb.
My usage: mainly commuting but sole vehicle so allround transport.
At around 800km, before the 1000km service, my mechanic helped me adjust
+14 clicks clockwise.
I attempted several settings of the front with final setting feeling good.
Had the settings at:
+16 turns (towards H) (out of total 24 IIRC)
Front Rebound damping:
+3.25 (clockwise) (out of total 4 IIRC)
Although the rear suspension started to feel awfully bouncy also over bumps
but mostly during cornering up/down road interchanges (at 30-60 km/h).
I reduced the rear preload by 2 to +12 - no improvement.
Then suddenly I had a lightbulb moment - reduce front damping to factory
My reasoning: if the front shock doesn't re-extend quick enough, the down
movement in the front is putting my weight towards the front and reducing at
the back, thus letting the back shock and spring extend but then the spring
wants to return after extending and visa versa - bouncy effect.
My reasoning may be wrong and I may be talking total crap, though.
Preload: +16 turns (towards H) (out of total 24 IIRC)
Rebound damping: +2.5 (clockwise)
Preload: +13 clicks clockwise.
Feels a lot better now. Need to further test. Later today.
I'll be back...
