*Front spring preload is set by loosening adjuster counterclockwise until it stops at minimum, then counting the number of turns in to get to the desired setting.


**All damping adjuster settings are done by tightening adjuster clockwise until it stops at maximum setting, then counting the turns counterclockwise to the desired setting.


***Load includes rider, passenger, cargo, accessories and riding gear.




Ride Quality Enhancement


The stock settings are designed to offer sufficient chassis control, but some may choose to enhance ride comfort over rougher road conditions or for long rides. Adjusting the compression setting will reduce both high and low speed damping.


         1.   Adjust suspension for rider weight. See Factory Suspension Settings: Buell 1125R Models.
         2.   Increase ride quality by reducing front and rear compression damping by turning adjuster counterclockwise 1/4-1 turn.
         3.   If additional ride quality is desired, reduce front preload by turning adjuster counterclockwise one turn.
         4.   If maximum ride quality is desired, decrease front and rear rebound damping by turning adjusters counterclockwise by 1/4-1/2 turn.




Cold Weather Riding Less Than 65° F (18° C)


The viscosity of the suspension fluid increases as the temperature decreases. As the fluid viscosity increases so does the damping. It is recommended to compensate for the varying fluid viscosity by readjusting the damping adjuster positions when operating outside the
normal ambient temperature range of 65-95° F (18-35° C).


         1.   Adjust suspension for rider weight. See Factory Suspension Settings: Buell 1125R Models.
         2.   Reduce front and rear compression damping and rebound damping by turning adjuster counterclockwise 1/4-1/2 turn.
