need help with suspension
ok, I'm a complete newb when it comes to bike suspensions, so I would like some imput on this:
I have a 07 DL650 with only 7K miles that rides like a forklift. you feel even the slightest bump or ridge in the road. I have added a fork brace and that seemed to help a little, but other than that the bike is totally stock. What I am looking for is a plush ride, if thats even possible with these bikes. The majority of my riding is done on rough country back roads, some gravel and dirt access roads. I have read about putting heavier sonic springs and ricor intiminators, but I don't know enough about them to really know if they would help in my situation. I'm thinking adding heavier springs would make it even harsher.
how about the preload adjusters on the forks? right now they are about halfway from the bottom, but thats as far as they can go as they are hitting the bars. would screwing them all the way in help?
I am also clueless as what to do with the preload on the rear shock.
I weigh 210 @ 5'11" anybody got any ideas?
07 DL 650 "the blue deuce"
