Turning out of the inside of a rutted corner.

Recommended Posts

Thai year my pace has seemed to pick up on the mx track. I have been struggling with rutted corners though. I have found that I have been having a hard time locking into the rut and staying engaged. The bike seems to want to turn out of the rut to the inside of the ruts. This is annoying and has resulted in a few tips overs. What do you suggest I check first for adjustments? Thanks in advance.

From a suspension tuning guide I use as a reference (http://dirtbikeresources.com/dirtbikeresources/Suspension/SuspensionTuningGuide)

Oversteer: Means that a motorcycle turns too quickly. In this case, the bike may tends to turn too sharply (or dart to the inside) which can disrupt a smooth, controlled arc.

·         Forks spring rate too soft
·         Shock spring rate too stiff
·         Incorrect rear sag
·         Forks compression damping too fast (soft)
·         Forks rebound damping too slow (stiff)
·         Rear shock compression damping too slow (stiff)
·         Rear shock rebound damping too fast (soft)
·         Triple clamps position too low on forks

 

The challenge is figure which one(s) is(are) the culprit.

Thanks. I tried a couple of things and found it to be the spring rate in the forks was too soft. Thanks for the tip
