    TW suspension setup.

    Suspension is a big topic as I'm sure you will know.

    So I have my bike booked in for checkup and setup for road and track use with;
    https://www.twsuspensiontech.co.uk/
    who I believe is an excellent specialist in the topic.
    I booked it in because I believe I'm too light for the standard suspension settings and think there can be improvements made, even if new fork springs are required it'll be worth it.
    Having ridden other sports bikes set up by Teut, there are noticeable improvements
    I will let you know how it goes.

    Has anyone else had their S1000RR done by TW suspsenion?

    Springs should be changed. You will want about 9.5-10.0 for 80kgs

    I had the springs changed on my Gen 3 and it really improved the feel from the front end - MCT carried out the work and he also changed the air gap. I'm 74kg and I think he fitted 10's but that was after telling him it would be used quite a bit on track - I'll check when I get home.

    MCT carried out the following:

    10nm springs
    7.5w fork oil
    100mm air gap
    modified preload spacer (no idea what he did)

    That was for a 74kg rider (normal clothes) using the bike on road and track.(fast group)
