Spring rate

Post  piston 197 on Mon Jun 25, 2018 11:53 am

The spring rate will be a combination of the weight at the rear end of the machine and your own weight, put the front and back wheels on 2 pairs of bathroom scales to get the weights at front and back and give the supplier the rear machine weight and your weight and if they know what they are doing should be able to supply the correct spring rate ? You then have the 3 positions of adjustment for when you are carrying a passenger
