    I have a question.

    My bike is Svartpilen 401(2018),

    WP lowering kit is installed.

    And my weight is 65 kg.

    I enjoy ordinary city driving.

    In this case, which one is the best setting for preloading the rear suspension: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10?

    Have a nice day.


    I’d set it to the softest/longest.


    My bike has the Husqvarna optional accessory lowering kit fitted.

    I weigh less than you and I set the suspension to 3 and it’s fine. My riding is mostly city commuting.


    If your drive is similar each day why not try them all.

    Start low and each day/ride increase it. Keep track of handling, braking and cornering characteristics until you find the one that fits your riding style.

    There is no universal setting for this. Everyone rides differently, has different roads to ride on and experiences the bike differently. Find what works for you.

    My inseam is short so I’m on the second lowest so I can touch the ground. I do notice it reduces my traction on bumps and corners compared to my 300 Ninja which is on the stiffest setting.
