Suspension setup, Forks, and Handling Issues / Suspension Refresh
« Last post by Skids on Today at 10:03:02 AM »
Brought my 2015 to MCT Suspension in Stowmarket for a much needed 40,000 mile refresh.

Focus on the front so new front springs, oil and a service, and a service of the rear.

She's my commuter so will never go on a track day hence limiting this to a service and refresh.

That's very strange. My 2015 had the best day I've ever had. It's bright, and goes extra visible when the sun shines on it. Have you checked the brightness setting?

VFR800X Crossrunner - General Chat / Dashboard contrast / readability
« Last post by XomUK on Today at 09:56:57 AM »
Morning all,

Has anyone come across anything to help with the readability of the dashboard? I have just bought a 2016 model and it seems to have poor contrast in terms of the readability of the display and I wondered if anyone has come across a 'sun shade' or similar to help with this?

Thanks in advance, Paul....

Sorry, mixed them up. Yes, the screw on the bottom of the shock is set to the hardest setting and the preload is set to the highest setting as well.

Took it to the guy that has been fixing up all my previous bikes, he took one look at it. "Yep, it's gone". Luckily enough the bike is still within the limited warranty from the dealer I bought it second hand, so they're going to replace it for me.

Thanks for the advice. Tried to adjust the compression damping knob and it too appears to be in the highest setting possible. I guess it's either busted or a rebuild/regassing is required?
The damping knob? On the OEM shock, it's screw at the bottom of the shock that you turn.. not so much a knob. But either way, if it's fully turned clockwise, it's at the maximum setting. I doubt very much that it's busted, unless you cannot turn it anti-clockwise either?

Rebuild may help, but the best advice is to speak to a suspension specialist. If you're on the west side of London, I highly recommend PDQ in Taplow (near Maidenhead).. they know their shit! They also re-valved my OEM rear shock and forks, re-gassed the shock and replaced the springs in the forks. It came back a different bike, for the better! But, even after that the shock still didn't cope too well with the demands of myself + pillion + luggage, hence me buying the Nitron.

08L51-MGE-800R1 is the correct item I believe. This is a set of two rubbers, washers and retaining screws.
