Top 10 Misconceptions about Motorcycle Suspension

All motorcycles come with suspension, and some of those components have settings that the riders themselves can adjust. That’s great if you know what you’re doing. Some bikes have a wide variety of settings for the rider to fiddle with. Again, if you know what you’re doing, the extra adjustments are a huge benefit. However, with the increase in adjustments available, the number of wrong combinations of settings also increases.

Now, suppose you add misinformation into the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for a foul-tasting suspension stew. In search of clarity, we turned to Ed Sorbo, owner and chief bottle washer of Lindemann Engineering – and the person who single-handedly saved MO’s 24 hour Grom race effort – to determine the biggest misconceptions concerning the suspenders on our favorite two-wheeled vehicles. So, let us take a look at, according to the vast knowledge base of Ed Sorbo, the Top 10 Misconceptions about Motorcycle Suspension.
