Starting to understand how to adjust showa suspension on a Ducati 916

Suspension has to be right and if you follow moto gp then you will understand that a lot of money and time is spent at each track fine tuning. Ohlins fitted on the majority of race bikes.

On the road then this is the same.

I started by moving all the pre load settings to standard as a benchmark. You could make a note of yours and then return back to the settings if you feel you have made a error.

so what are you looking for

me a soft ride that the bike rides over the bumps not skips or jumps.

accelerate and the back end should not sag or drop under acceleration

this will also help with any posture as I felt the suspension was too hard and my back was jolting on the bumps.
