Trophy Suspension settings
« on: August 18, 2013, 05:54:06 PM »
Have had my Trophy SE 8 months now and it's great :028:. I went out on it today and rode about a 100 miles with setting for the suspension set at sport. :034: I have been leaving it set at normal until now unless I'm imagining it the ride seems so much better! Has any one ridden in comfort mode and can till that it is actually is more comfortable! Or does any one prefer sport mode over normal mode ?  Would like to hear what other members think about these settings . Cheers

Hi Marcus

I have set mine on comfort with two up as mostly I have my lady on the back. Having been riding it on normal you do notice a difference on comfort, I havnt noticed a problem with the handling but then I don't ride too fast. Have a play I'm sure you will notice a difference.

I can certainly feel the difference in the suspension settings. In sport mode things become much more rewarding for a fast run.

Currently have the TES set for one up plus luggage in comfort mode as I am doing 3,000 miles in 2 weeks. It feels great for the mile munching. Also steady as a rock fully laden doing 120 on the autobahn! :008: :008:

I use all the settings. Because, I can. Not sure if the bike setting affects my ride "enthusiasm" or my enthusiasm affects how I set the ride. Oh well, its all good. I love it.

My observations after 6000 miles of mostly very spirited sport riding (This is my first non sport bike), and I weigh 175 lbs.  First, I would like to say the Trophy handles amazing for a bike this big.  It's the offspring of a Goldwing mating with a Ducati.  And the Ducati genes were stronger.  :001:

Comfort mode is worthless, not enough damping (compression or rebound).
Sport mode is fine if the road is like a billiard table (smooth).  If any bumps, sport has too much damping.  And/or sport mode was meant for track days.
Normal mode actually works pretty good for all kinds of riding.
For my weight, the spring rates seem a little too stiff.
With a passenger weighing 125 lbs, I find the best setting is Normal and rider plus luggage.
I would love to see a firmware update that allows us to fine tune the damping settings.
I am guessing someone who weighs more than me, can use all the settings and likes them.

After experimentation on the ratty backroads of Texas I find Normal to be optimal.  Handles very well and I get to keep my kidneys.

I don't have the SE so all my settings are done by hand. I have set them all to the firmest. It saves messing around when Sarah is on the back and is fine for fast riding. The only thing I will adjust is the steering damper which I wind down one or two clicks when riding solo.

I've come from comfort, two up with luggage to sport, one up. Big change.  It brought out the hoon in me.  Think I will be safer if I ease it off to normal for the same reason as W8d4it.
