Hi

Just change to bitubo suspension for my vespa sprint 150cc (year 2020)

I want to know, for front suspension, how many click can turn to (H) hard setting? Refer attached image with red circle.

Mine can turn to (H) hard setting more than 20 click. Ist it abnormal? What is the maximum click can turn the know to hard setting?


Thanks

It shouldn't matter. What matters if you can adjust the rebound to your liking. How many clicks does that take? I never counted on my Bitubos, but I do know that handling improved much after installing the Bitubo front shock absorber on my GTS.

Well it does matter, but it is a personal choice based on your riding style...

Start with ten (half way) and see if you like it.. The higher the number of click (clockwise) the slower the rebound will be. The lower the number of clicks (counterclockwise) the quicker the rebound will be...

The theory behind is to try to keep the tyre in contact with the road as much as possible..

You are going to have to try and find your best settings... There is no right or wrong, but if you get the right setting, you will enjoy your ride a lot more...


PS

Make sure you adjust the bump (red spring first), then you can work on the rebound..
