Default 675r susension how to

I know this suspension has the clicks and etc. But has anyone made their own setup where its a soft suspension less bumpy.

There is not much you can do with the rebound and compression to make it feel softer. Most likely you need to put a new rear spring on it. You can try taking some preload out of it too.

I have a 2012 D675R. I adjusted the compression and rebound according to the recommended specs in the manual for "street riding". It is more street friendly. Just be careful turning them in to full clockwise too much on forks. Toward the end it still clicks, but feels like you're over turning them. I stopped where I felt comfortable that I wasn't overturning, and backed off to get my "0" click. Then made a few minor adjustments later to where I was happy, after going for a ride.

As previous poster mentioned, the "sag" or spring preload is essential with proper suspension tuning. If needed, this should be the first change you make with proper suspension tuning. I'm at 188, and with my initial sag measurements, I see too much preload on the rear and too little up front. I'll need to revisit the compression/rebound settings after I set my sag up properly.

Adjusting spring preload can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. If unsure, seek a professional's assistance :)

Its a sportbike, there are other bikes (couches) for a nice cushy ride. But you can play with your compression some or softer springs.

Watch videos on suspension setup by Dave Moss. You'll learn a lot. I did.
