Only so many times I could ask my wife and daughter to come out into a cold garage and look at rulers and tape measures......
So i have devised a hack to allow me to check sag and repeat the readings without hearing the words "what! again!!"
120cm (4') of light coloured ribbon
2 x light weights e.g 22mm nut or 8mm ring spanner
5cm (2") of masking tape
3 different colour felt tip pens
a supporting wall close enough you can balance sitting on the bike
i put a 2.5cm piece of masking tape along the spindle of the front and rear indicators (on the side away from the wall) and marked a clear line along the top.
I then cut the ribbon in half and knotted a small weight onto each 60cm (2') length. At the front i knotted the other end of the ribbon to the brake caliper so that the ribbon hung over my mark on the indicator with the weight keeping tension. At the rear i knotted the other end to the brake pipe into the caliper and then over the indicator same as the front.
1) jack it up and mark where the ribbon crosses the line on each indicator front and back with one colour = fully extended
2a) off the jacks - support the bike vertical on its wheels, push the front down and let it rise then (with your free hand) mark where the ribbon crosses the line on the front indicator with 2nd colour = bike only maximum sag, then lift the bike and let it fall and mark the ribbon again = bike only minmum sag,
2b) repeat at the rear.
3a) Sit on the bike feet on the rests
balancing against the wall stand suddenly (to push the bike down) and let it rise and (with your free hand) mark where the ribbon crosses the line on the front indicator with 3rd colour = bike & rider sag maximum, then put your feet on the ground, lift them back on the rests. let the bike settle and mark the ribbon again = bike & rider minmum sag,
3b) Sit on the bike backwards and repeat the above marking the rear ribbon.
take the ribbons off and measure the differences from fully extended to the average bike only sag and the average bike & rider sag
Then use adjustments, springs and spacers to correct your GRiSO's sag to the figures given by your favorite guru
the difference between minimum and maximum at each pair of readings shows stiction in that suspension system - if the shock bearings are good it should be minimal at the rear but i can't get mine less than 12mm at the front
Hope that helps someone
