Hi all I have just been for a short but solid off-road ride on the twin and found 2 things blatantly obvious.
1. The suspension bottoms far too quickly never harsh but still to easily.
2. When it rebounds it feels like a pogo stick I will add that i have the rebound set to a fairly fast setting on the shock so that the shock doesn't pack and then spit me off. So possibly more a result of not enough compression damping and trying to compensate by speeding up rebound. Still less than ideal.
For a 230kg bike it does handle off-road sufficiently well if it's mostly dirt roads and fire trails but when the terrain gets more uneven the suspension gets quickly out of its depth.
What have you other Aussie riders done with your suspension to make it more suitable off-road? I have read some stuff on Tekniks website about what they do to the Africa Twin has anyone used them for upgrades and ridden fairly solid off-road before and after and have a good comparison of the effectiveness of the work?
