scott steering damper

Recommended Posts

I haven't done anything yet. Is that a prerequisite or just something that generally needs to be done on the bike. I have put gas in it and hit the trails. Just now trying to figure out how to make it a better ride. Input welcome.

I must admit this is new territory for me. I weigh in at 190 without gear. Ride mostly enduro style trails. Not sure what I need to focus on with suspension. I know I can spend a lot of money, just want it to go to improvements. Any suggestions on references? I have read the suspension forum and picked up some things but still not certain what changes to focus on.

Opinions and suggestions please.

If you have the cash and go over 35 get a Dampener. The biggies are Scott's and GPR, and I suggest you try to ride both. The trail and desert rider vets seem to favor the GPR.

I'll never ride another bike without one. Ever.

I've had a Scotts for about 10 years and it's still going strong - some of the best money I've ever spent. :cry:

Just get out there and ride for a while. If you spend much time on these boards you will end up changing everything on your bike.

You just bought the best stock trail bike ever made. Ride it like you stole it.

Get your suspension dialed in for the type of ridding you like and later on if you need more then start changing things.

click on this link, http://www.off-road.com/dirtbike/tootech.html print it and take it on the trail with you. Along with a small screw driver. Find a section of trail you like for testing. Keep riding back and forth over the same section so you can tell if the adjustments are to your liking. It won't do much good to make a change and then cover new ground allthough many claimed experts here will tell you different.

Thanks for the reply. I agree on all accounts, don't want to do things unnecessarily at this point. The link is the type of info I am looking for. If I can learn to set up my own bike I will better know what I am looking for.
