Performance Tips

Suspension

  • The most important performance enhancement that should be done to your motorcycle is to get the suspension (front forks & rear shock) upgraded and adjusted properly to your weight, with full gear, and riding style.
    • More horsepower won’t help you ride better, especially if the motorcyle isn’t handling optimally.
    • Suspension tuning is not easy. Ask around to find an experienced suspension professional that really knows what they’re doing.

Tire Pressure

  • Check and set, if necessary, your front and rear tire pressures everytime before you ride.
    • Too much or too little pressure is dangerous and will affect the handling of the motorcycle.
      • Too much pressure may cause the tires to not warm up enough to give you optimal traction.
      • Too little pressure may cause the tires to get too hot, causing them to get greasy, also reducing traction.
