Suspension sag settings for jennings? ('03rr)

I am going to set up my suspension for the track soon and I was wondering what any of you veteran jennings guys have to say.

I watched the video on setting it up, and have a decent understanding of what i am doing and what i want. But not sure what I should use as a base line for sag and damping since i am setting it up for the track and on a different bike.

also after looking at the pictures on this site and looking at my tires I am pretty sure my rebound damping is wrong (i figured it was wrong before hand, but this makes me even more curious)

I am aware this would also be appropriate in the "tires and suspension" section.

Have you also watched onthethrottle.com's sag video? That is very good. It won't help you with Jennings, but a good baseline on any bike is the sag that is appropriate for you weight. After that, you can tinker it to get the best performance.



www.LMGTFY.com --> give it a try before you ask

Thanks for driving that hybrid...and saving all the gas for me!

yup, I hyperlinked the word "video" I guess it got lost among all the in the text ads.

I was wondering if the numbers he was using for sag on that bike (i think it was 1-1/2") are right for my bike and application.

On those videos the sag is pretty standard. Did you watch the one with Dave Moss? If not, he gives percentages. Your owners manual might outline the specific sag settings. Everything else comes down to personal preferance.

What I mean is:

How much feedback do you want from your suspension?
How much dive do you want the front end doing?
How quickly do you want the bike to reset after a bump or braking/ acceleration?

This is how I understand it anyway.
