Set up 09 FE570?

i am looking for what some of you other guys are set up at with stock suspension on this bike. i just got it and am looking for some sort of clicker adjustment reference point... settings to try and start with. If you are similar in size 5'11 and 195lbs) and ride roots, dry rocky single track- let me know what you got your clickers set at.

Re: Set up 09 FE570?

If you have the owners manual, that is the best place to start. Once I got the right springs in the bike for my weight and set the sag to mfg specs it worked good. I can also tell you that I went with the recommendations in the manual for what the clicker settings should be. That got me to within 2 clicks.

i do believe the manual has 3 settings in there, soft standard and sport. Soft is good for what? and sport- well, what kind of sport are they talking about there? MX? Singletrack?

I went off the comfort/soft I believe. I ride Az. desert and CO. single track C/B usually at a "C" pace. I also use the bike for limited dual sport. 270lbs in gear .48 front springs 8.8 rear.
Not a lot of roots, but more than my share of rocks

Re: Set up 09 FE570?

I am just over 200 lbs at 6'2". I put .48 springs in the front and 8.4 on the rear. Last Saturday I took my first ride in the dirt with all of the clickers set to standard. I was very happy with the suspension - the best I have ever ridden. The ride was very plush on rocky roads and the bike handled pretty well through the whoops. Once I get the suspension broken in I will try tweaking things and try to find the sweet spot, but I think the standard setting will do for now. But the first step is to get the correct spring rates.
