The motorcycle industry is constantly evolving, which brings exciting new features to the bikes we know and love. Today’s bicycles are more complex than ever, and understanding how the motorcycle’s suspension works seems to be a daunting task at first. However, understanding how your suspension is set up, how it affects your riding, and how to make adjustments is an important first step to fully understanding your bike and how to keep it in its original condition.

The main goal of a motorcycle suspension is to keep the vehicle tires in contact with the ground. Without proper suspension, tires will lose traction in bumps, tilts, or other ground defects. We also must not forget braking, acceleration, or turning force. Motorcycle suspensions use a combination of springs and dampers to isolate the chassis and rider from road defects. The role of the road motorcycle suspension system is to minimize the effects of potholes, bumps, corners, and acceleration/deceleration forces. The off-road motorcycle suspension system can handle roots, rocks, jumps, ledges, etc. Without the suspension, any collision between the vehicle’s tires and ground defects would be uncomfortable at best, and at worst would result in a dangerous collision.

The shock absorber includes a front shock absorber and a rear shock absorber. The rear shock absorber has a simple structure and consists of a shock absorber spring and a shock absorber. It has a good jumping ability and is always impossible to remove. Some rear shock absorbers have adjustment items for adjusting spring elasticity. The front shock absorber is a bit complicated and has a great influence on the motorcycle. The front shock absorber not only absorbs the vibration of the front wheels but also transmits driving power. So it needs great flexibility. And the flexibility of the two shock absorbers should be the same to keep the motorcycle driving straight. The front shock absorber of a motorcycle vibrates 80 times per minute, and the spring and the front fork core are required to have good toughness. It also requires higher production accuracy and toughness.
