Sportbike suspension systems offer an unmatched variety of adjustments, but understanding how those adjustments work, and how to combine them to tailor your motorcycle to your riding style can be as challenging as riding well. That's why many riders never try to make the most of their bike's high-tech suspension simply because they don't know where to start or are afraid of making their bike handle worse rather than better.
Now, in the first book that specifically addresses sportbike suspension systems, Andrew Trevitt, senior editor of Sport Rider magazine and a former roadracer, guides you through the process of setting up your bike's suspension to suit your riding style. This book covers the basics setting static sag for your weight as well as more subtle and advanced adjustments, such as how to optimize rear-end squat. A comprehensive discussion on chassis geometry, suspension technology, and the many interactions among adjustments helps demystify suspension tuning. Andrew also explains how to analyze various handling symptoms and make adjustments to correct them. Plus, he offers specific setup techniques for both the street and the track.
You will be amazed by how much better your bike will feel after its suspension is correctly set up, and by how much more confident your riding will be with the improved handling. Sportbike Suspension Tuning will give you the necessary skills to experience the difference.

About the Author:

Andrew Trevitt is the senior editor of Sport Rider magazine and has raced both in his native Canada and in the United States. His rigorous testing, clear analysis, and easy-to-follow approach has made Trevitt's technical articles the most highly read in the publication. This is his first book.

Review:

"Highly recommended."

Sportbike Suspension Tuning is an outstanding primer on a complex subject, and Trevitt leads us logically from ignorance to wisdom . . . The basic question for the reader: can this material be used effectively in the real world of riding on the road and on track. Answer: definitely. Trevitt has produced a manual of high quality and daily usefulness, written in direct and accessible language.
As usual with David Bull books, this is a beautifully produced offering with photographs of exceptional clarity (mostly by the author, the various sport-bike manufacturers, Marc Cook, and Riles & Nelson) that along with the diagrams illustrate the text beautifully. Highly recommended.
--Roadracing World

"A bargain."

Trevitt's book neither insults the intelligence nor baffles us with arcane terminology or concepts. He starts with the basics and ends up explaining anti-squat via all points in between, all helped with copious color photos and a few diagrams. For the life of me I can't think of another book in English that covers the same sort of terrain, so I suspect that there's an audience for the information in this 128-page softback. It's published by David Bull Publishing for $24.95, which given the state of the dollar on the international exchange markets, makes it a bit of a bargain.
