When it comes to a proper handling and performing motorcycle one of the single most important aspects is the suspension. Too stiff, you'll break your back and it'll handle like a truck. Too soft, you'll end up washing out in a corner when it unloads. There's so many variables to understand in order to properly select the right type of suspension for your bike. And we're here to help you understand them all!

SUSPENSION X 101

When it comes to a proper handling and performing motorcycle one of the single most important aspects is the suspension. Too stiff, you'll break your back and it'll handle like a truck. Too soft, you'll end up washing out in a corner when it unloads. There are so many variables to understand in order to properly select the right type of suspension for your bike.

In SUSPENSION X 101 we demystify as much of it as we can and help give you a solid understanding of what you bike really needs based on your requirements from it. Do you need $1500 Ohlins shocks on your 1973 CB450? Probably not. Is the right way to lower a bike putting the forks up through the triple trees? Nope. Don't stress though, we'll cover this an a wealth of other knowledge to give you the basics!
