Hey im trying to get my SWB zx14 suspension dialed in. And besides lowering it I really have no idea where to go with the settings and sag.
I havent touched any settings front or rear, the front forks have been dropped through the tripples as far as they will go, which was about 1.75". A strap and I have adjustable lowering links on the rear. Im not sure how much I lowered the rear.
But I took a few measurements tonight. I have 12.75" from floor to center of swingarm pivot, 12.25" from floor to center of rear axle. My rear race sag is 3/4". And I have 3" from my tire to the undertail and on launch it is rubbing the undertail a little. So the bike is squating at least another 2.25" on the launch.
Im still on the stock shock, but I can play with the compression, rebound, and prelaod. Would it help if I went lower and stiffened up the shock?
So far my best 60' is 1.56 and 330' of a 3.98
If I can cut a tenth of my 330' I think I have a chance of getting closer to my 8.99-9.0 goal.
And im 235lbs suited
Here is a vid of a run, not the best but its the only one I have. Looks like the bike is squating quite a bit on the launch
The best thing you can do as far as suspension is have that shock revalved to slow the compression and rebound. Most people think tighting down the spring collar and maxing out the rebound and compression screws is the fix for the bike squatting to much in the rear,but that is not the fix. A stock shock was not valved from the factory for drag racing,so the valving is too quick. Once you get the shock valved for your weight and wheelbase it will start working better for you. But your numbers are pretty impressive considering your weight!
