You raise a good point, this has been asked previously in this forum but no one has been able to provide an answer. Also, average weight varies from country to country, but if it even mentioned 80kg's we would at least have a base to work from. Force=mass*acceleration & Torque=force*distance. Or simply try and test until you find the happy medium.After digesting the War and Peace-length novel that is the Ducati Supersport Owners Manual, I have a question.
For what weight rider are the "stock" spring preload settings mentioned in the manual? In previous Ducati manuals, they have specified that the spring preload is set for an "average weight rider" of X weight (I recall it being about 160 lbs). Is that the case on the SS? If so, what is that weight?
I ask because I imagine I am not an average weight rider and that I should adjust the preload in accordance with my weight. I would also surmise that I should adjust the preload further when I have someone riding on the back? Am I correct? If so, should I also adjust the front suspension preload when I have a 2nd rider?
I'd appreciate any feedback.
