Here, users will be able to adjust nine different settings of the bike. These settings include changes to the preload, springs, compression damping, and extension damping. Here’s a look at the settings that can be changed:

  • Front Preload: Lowering it increases the bike’s agility and handling. Raising it increases the bike’s stability.
  • Rear Preload: Low values make the bike easier to control. Higher values make the bike more precise.
  • Front Spring: Low makes the bike easier to control, while higher values make the bike more precise.
  • Rear Spring: Low values make the bike easier to control, while higher values make the bike more responsive.
  • Front Compression damping: Lowering it increases the bike’s stability, while raising it increases the bike’s response.
  • Rear Compression damping: Lowering it increases the bike’s stability, while raising it increases the bike’s response.
  • Front Extension damping: Lowering it increases the bike’s stability, while raising it increases the bike’s response.
  • Rear Extension damping: Lowering it increases the bike’s stability, while raising it increases the bike’s response.
  • Gear Ratio: Shortening it allows you to get greater acceleration, while increasing it lets you get a higher top speed.

Each of the above settings, aside from Gear Ratio, run in increments of one, with a minimum of zero and a maximum. For Gear Ratio, there are three different types: Short, Medium, and Long.
