How To Setup Motorcycle Suspension Sag Rebound Compression Damping FZ09 MT09 – Here’s a complete walkthrough on how to best setup the suspension on your FZ09 MT09 or any other street bike.  The controls you have available will depend on your specific model and year but the premise is the same.  It is such a huge myth that bikes are setup ‘right’ from the factory.  In fact they are setup completely inappropriately for a huge percentage of riders.  The preload, compression and rebound damping controls on your bike are there TO BE USED.  You are missing out on ride comfort, control, handling and added safety by not running the best settings possible for your situation.  It costs nothing and there is no risk in changing your settings as long as you write everything down.
