Hey all

Just got my suspension dialed in and it’s a whole new bike. The stock set up was so bouncy and soft. I found this chart and used it as a guide: completely transformed the bike for me. One of the big selling points for the cb1000r over the 650 was the adjustable suspension and I’m pretty damn happy with my choice. How’s your experience been with the suspension setups?

I need to go see if there is more front spring preload to take out and if there is more rebound for the shock. Otherwise, it's pretty close.

I'm a big guy and a spirited rider. Rear suspension wasn't cutting it for me.

I fitted Ohlins shock and Matris fork cartridges. Handles like a champ now, even 2 up.

I adjusted mine to match above. Definitely better afterwards. Suspension in on the list for upgrades, but not at the top yet.
