Dear Dave,

My name is Rishi Agarwal. I attended your seminar in Bangalore and the session in Chennai. I was riding the Aprilia RSV4 RR. I just wanted to write to you and say thank you for your time and effort!

I had a truly eye opening experience understanding how so many different components work. Motorcycling culture is in its infancy in India and not too many of us understand the how’s and why’s of the way things work. When I heard that you were coming to India my jaw dropped because we don’t get too many opportunities like this here.

My bike is fully stock and has just turned one year old. I’m super excited to have my suspension serviced after putting in 1.05 rating springs in the front along with 10W oil. I will try and find some way of servicing the rear as well. I just hope I am able to achieve the same settings again.

If there’s one thing you’ve taught me, its “why they heck wont you just try and see what works”. I think I’ve been afraid to work with suspension thus far for lack of knowledge (or more honestly for being too lazy to learn).

Thanks for helping me with that PB lap (I know there was at least another second in those laps)!!!!!

Hi Dave,

It definitely improved the handling on the bike.  I really like how, even when doing in-person tuning, you don't just do some magic and then send the person back out.  You provide insight into what the changes should do, and what the rider should be paying attention to.
Specifically with this test plan it was great to feel each step by step change, and how it changed the characteristics of the bike.
I was recently out at Streets of Willows, which has to be the roughest track I've ever ridden.  The bike dealt with it well and I felt stable which really improved my confidence.
I didn't end up buying my on-track pictures from that weekend out at Thunderhill when I was running your test plan, but here is a picture of me at Thill a different weekend.
Thanks!

Thank you Dave for tuning my suspension, it handles like a dream.

A lot of feed back from the front ends trail brakes like no other just have to point my head and it goes. I really enjoy my bike now!! cheers

Thanks to Dave Moss and his 'Tuning' website with instructional videos I have graduated from setting preload, compression and rebound dampening to breaking down my first fork.
Dave's video's are informative, educational and are produced with professional quality and move at an excellent pace.
With the assistance of Dave's video I have disassembled the forks on my SV650S and replaced the seals, spring, and oil all with confidence!   I am now one of those guys who can do 'fork work' now...can't wait to broaden my knowledge.
Thank-you!

Hi Dave,

I wanted to thank you for the settings that you gave me. I had Sport Rider magazine's settings before,and your settings were far better! I felt the better balance right away. Also, normal tire wear.

First time in racer practice at Loudon since 1990.🙂  Held my own in expert class,faster all day.

I come from a long family history of racers. My dad was a very good classic racer and even has high lights of racing in the first world super bike races.  You would think I was a natural racer. Well I wasn’t. I did not come naturally to me. I had to work hard on my self and my riding.

I’ve been racing now 6 years. Hitting lines and apex’s was fine. It was that I was quite sensitive to the bike.  I could feel things weren’t right with the handling of the bike and I couldn’t push to go faster. I didn’t have the knowledge of what to do so I would just go out and try things write every change down to get a feeling of how does that feel if I go hard all the way then softer the other way.  My friends laugh at me as I have a suit case full of 6 yrs of data wrote down.

My dad found Dave this year on YouTube told me to sit and watch him.  So I did. I wasn’t too far out on my sag suspension as I always had my shock and suspension serviced every year and they helped me with a good base setting. But....

Watching Dave’s rebound videos and his tyres wear ones too - they helped so much. So much so I went out and bought new tyre gauge, tyre probe and new tyre warmers.

Watch the videos - you will be amazed to the fact "Are your tyres actually being heated up to the right temp?"

Breaking down corners in to the 3 parts was a big help.

Well, going out in practice gave  me points to think about and then when I came in I made the changes I needed to make and in practice I was normally only 2 secs of my race PB. So come qualifying I could get even closer to my PB and by first race I would smashed my PB.

Enough said really. Watch the videos and if you are lucky to live close to Dave, get some one on one.

Thanks again Dave.

Meeting with and expert or a boss “Dave Moss”...

As I decided to buy my first bike (NC750X) in 2015  i had no idea about motorbikes and the mechanic about them. After I have changed my bike to 2017 Africa Twin,explored that there are lots of options needs tuning for suspension. I had no idea about any of them and there aren’t any service or mechanic that I know to get help.

Incidentally, I met guys in a shop (Rapi Online Motorcycle Garage) who are also RoSPA examiners:- Sertan Karamollaoğlu and Tugrul Sozeri. Great guys,they are not only businessmen, they are mechanic, salesman and also teachers. After few visits we have been good friends.

Last year in August, Sertan announced that there will be a seminar about suspension and a guy will come from U.S called Dave Moss. I had no idea about suspension and tuning boss Dave Moss. But I thought that I have to join this seminar, because I am 250lbs and 6’6” and I was feeling that my bike’s springs are so soft on the pavement. Also when I was riding with my pillion the geometry of bike was like front is up and rear was down. The feeling was very light on handlebar.

The seminar was very  useful.

First of all we have learned that ever bike must be tuned according to the rider.And every time you must change the preload and tyre pressure according to the weight on the bike because Factories fix the bikes according to a regular rider who is 150lbs and 6’ tall. Also the tyres are the same.

After the seminar Dave checked all the bikes and there were really interesting results. For example my bikes stock forks were tuned completely different than each other and my stock rear spring was softer than it must be.

Dave tuned my bike and advised me to change the spring sets (front&rear) with hard heavy duty ones. After he tuned my preload,comp. and rebounds

The bike changed character. I was more confident in the corners and on brakes.

Sertan ordered me new spring set from Hyperpro +20mm and Tugrul replaced them and also tuned up.

This August 2018 Dave Moss came to Istanbul for another seminar and also this year there was an option that he will make fine tuning several times according to riders wish on the road conditions during a ride. After every ride which is 25-30 km long, Dave asked us how we feel and what we wish or need. It was 3-4 hours for each rider to find the correct tuning for him.

It was an awesome day to discover yourself and your bikes limits.

The bike’s character is changed like Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde before and after the tuning. I feel more confident and have more fun of my bike now.

Thanks to Dave Moss “the Boss” and also thanks to Sertan Karamollaoğlu and Tugrul Sozeri,RAPI GARAGE...

The seminar was very useful. Personally I recommend that seminar to all motorcycle users, and especially the Africa Twin owners. I understand that setting up our bike for ourselves is one of the most important details that we neglect.

After my bike is set up most of the problems that I and other Adventure Touring (AT) riders has been solved. One of our friends is preparing summary notes for that seminar to be published in our 6.000 people AT group.

Thanks to everyone that contributed to that seminar.

After Dave’s seminars and suspension tuning sessions on local roads, all of us are much more confident on our bikes and also happier with its performance, grip and comfort.

There is too much to learn for a biker and the time we’ve spent with Dave was very helpful for understanding that. Within one weekend we understood how ergonomics and geometry changes our riding, and how to adjust our suspension according to changing environment and riding style. There are still lots of things to understand so we are looking forward to see Dave again in Turkey.

Until then I’ll follow the DMT channel and will make few Skype sessions to learn more and more.

Thanks again Dave for all your contributions to our rides.

Before I met Dave Moss and started to study his content, my motorcycle had a poor set up. Rebound, compression and preload  was way off. The ride experience was poor and unsafe. My bike was always trying to run wide on corners. Tire wear was pretty bad too.

Now, after a proper setup provided remotely by Dave, the ride experience is excellent. Its like having a new bike. Now I have confidence enough to improve my riding skills.

Thank you!

Dave!

Thanks for the suspension tune!

She is handling great. Put in some work on a set of Q3s yesterday. Thanks to you bike is holding a way tighter line.

Daniel Kupfer, Mexico City, MexicoDaniel Kupfer, Mexico City, Mexico

Hello Dave!

I did the adjustments and the bike feels MUCH better!!

 

So, in the front. I'm at 4 in in preload instead of 10 (stock 5) that left me with 35mm of SAG:
- 4 out rebound

- 5 out compression

 

For more front feel I will be trying in a progressive way   4-3-2-1 with the rebound setting.

In the rear I'm at min preload and 3 out compression which gives me 40mm of SAG.

Thank you very much Dave! Please send the PayPal invoice.

Stefan Heindl, Bavaria, GermanyStefan Heindl, Bavaria, Germany

Hello Dave, how are you ?

 

My name is Stefan. I am 37 years old and I live in Germany (Bavaria).

I have been riding a Suzuki Gsxr 1000 K6  for almost 12 years now and in the past 3 years I started to learn more about suspension setup and settings and tyre wear.

I have experimented with different setups to see how it works and to get a better feeling for my bike. I watched some Youtube Videos from Dave Moss as well to learn more about it !

This year I have replaced both tyres with a Conti Sport Attack 3 which is a really great street tyre. After riding a couple of kilometres I could see that something was strange with my rear tyre wear.

It seemed to be too rough, too much rubber balls and later cracks on the surface and it looked for me like a hot or cold tear (I thought first).

So I tried different pressure- and shock setups but nothing really worked !! I only ride on the street and I have never had the problem before with different street tyres!

I don´t really have the experience to decide what caused this wear. That´s the reason why I got in contact with Dave. I told him about my problem and sent him a few pictures of my tyre wear!

 

Anyway, Dave replied very quickly and told me that this wear is caused by a wrong geometry where the surface of the tyre is overheating because I changed my tyre size from standard 190/50 to 190/55.

It was really interesting for me because I rode different tyres before with size 190/55 and I couldn`t see that problem on the rear tyre but the compound of the Sport Attack 3 showed me that!

So on my bike it’s a bit difficult to change shock preload (not enough space to work on it) so I changed back to standard tyre size 190/50!

 

After a few hundreds of  kilometres and lots of throttle outside corners the tyre wear looked great in my opinion and Dave also confirmed me that!!

So after all, Dave did an awesome job and gave me such amazing and useful information, I couldn`t believe that only a slightly bigger tyre could cause a wrong geometry and a poor wear!

And without Dave`s help, surely I would have experimented into the wrong direction!

 

Thanks a lot Dave for your support and your professional help!!

Dave Moss – Remote Suspension Tuning Summary in Austria/EU

  1. and 19.09.2018 – Brno Curcuit Czech Republic

Arnold from Austria, Bike: 2017 Aprilia Tuono V4 RR

Track: Brno  - CZ (MotoGP Track):

My expectations:

  • Getting help in finding good suspension setting for my bike and riding style
  • Improving the handling of the bike / getting more confidence in riding
  • Tire wear / duration of the tire was a big issue as well
  • Maybe some hints, tips and tricks about setting up the suspension

 

 

About the setup of the remote tuning:

I got in contact with Dave via email and asked for a remote tuning session for my Aprilia. I got within a couple of hours a feedback (mind the time shift of 9 hours to my local time). It was very uncomplicated to arrange the tuning, no up front payments needed – the topic was in focus not financials. Dave really took time to understand what I need and I expect from the tuning.

All current settings I have sent to Dave in front of the track day at Automotodrom Brno in Czech Republic with some pictures of the tire from my last track day at Slovakia Circuit in Slovakia.

He advised a set of adjustments I should try out and give feedback – that was a good way to overcome the time shift, because morning in US was already afternoon in EU, so most of the training sessions were already done.

After running all the settings I have sent to Dave for each setting my personal feedback and pictures of the tires via WhatsApp.

 

 

 

WhatsApp is the preferred way because phone calls are not that easy to do in such a noisy environment like sitting in the pit with a lot of track action ongoing. He proposed some adjustments to my favorite settings to improve tire wear and get me confident in the suspension.

For example:

  • being hard on gas my backhand was pumping especially at the uphill section at Brno before the start/finish line chicane.
  • after tighten/slowing up the rebound of the shock step by step it got better each time until it was perfect for me – not suffering in other sections.
  • after the tuning the tire wear pattern looked very good.

Front: after tuning

 

 

 

 

Back: after tuning

 

What did I learn?:

  • Don’t bet too much on the opinion of your pit colleagues because
    • They may have a different bike
    • The suspension may be different
    • They are using different tires
    • They may have a different weight as you have
    • Different riding style and skills

What is good for them does not mean its good for you as well!

  • Note everything you know, all settings, temperatures, measurements you are doing, more information leads to better understanding what’s ongoing and how to treat it. Just having a feeling and turning screws wild leads to nothing good.
  • Make also huge adjustment changes to really feel what’s the effect on it, getting better, getting worse – note directly after you hop off the bike what your thoughts are, the first impression is gone after a couple of minutes if you do not write it down.
  • Be careful with setting up the suspension, take time for it, adjust according the plan, no guessing and adjustments on feelings and believes, stay on the plan what you make before for not losing track and focus what you want to achieve.
  • Take the suspension as soft as possible which fits to your riding style – improvements in lap time needs to have some slight adjustments as well, also ambient and track temperatures are effecting suspension much more than expected.

 

Output what you can get from the remote tuning.

  • I gained great understanding of how to set up the suspension – knowledge transfer – Dave is very kind to share. All asked questions are answered sufficiently and as questions can be random verses well organized.
  • Also try “out of scope looking” settings – trust the great experience of Dave, maybe that’s a setting which fits you better than you expect – at least you learn a lot about your individual suspension and how it performs.
  • You will find well tuned suspension settings for your riding style and skills which you can gain trust in because you have a better understanding.
  • The tire wear was improving significantly in two directions – the wear pattern was improving much in the front and back (means grip) as well as the duration/life of the tire improved a lot (abrasion). Even when getting faster on the track the tire lasts longer. Just to illustrate what that means. Before the adjustments, a fresh – brand new tire was gone to 1/3 after 3 Stints (20min). After the tuning the tire looks pretty much new after 3 training sessions and a race at the end – I’m sure this tire lasts for at least 3-4 days now which is an increase of about 250-300% in duration with same or faster lap times!
  • At last a base setting you can start working on for each individual track you are at – with asking a lot of questions I gained a know-how of what to do next track day if something feels strange – only small adjustments are needed.

 

I can highly recommend having a session with Dave – best would be face to face but the remote tuning session worked better than my expectations. That’s because of the huge experience Dave has in this area.

As much information you can give to Dave, he can advise how to get you and the tires to be better. Making pictures, sending the settings you have done with the comment how it felt to you… what is getting better, what is getting worse etc…

One thing which could be improved is that Dave is asking more questions about the feeling of the bike – maybe that was not needed due to the notes I have written down.

Many thanks!

Arnold

Dave,

First I want to thank you for your effort to make all the videos. I watch them since about a year. Thanks for your recommended settings. My lap times and tires were now much better and smoother.

I was again on track last weekend. That was my absolute reference track. I smashed my time about to 2,5 Seconds

Hey Dave!

Just wanted to share this with you. I’ve sent a lot of time on your site and watching your premium content. And would just like to say thank you. I’ve been dropping time like crazy and finally have the bike setup near perfect.

As I’ve gained speed I’ve been able to add or remove clicks with confidence. As well moving from Track to Track being able to change my setup and still keep the bike happy.

I was able to do a personal best at Buttonwillow this weekend. 1:55 with traffic.

Again just a thank you for sharing great content your knowledge to the world. I’ve attached some pics of my nice beach looking tires 🙌🏼.

Hi Dave,

So as I hoped, I had my track day this last Thursday, and I took a few notes and photos, which I’m hoping you can have a look and give me some pointers. The day was a bi shorter than I expected as there were fair few crashes and track time got reduced a bit (I ended up not having time for the last session of the day).

From the day, I can say that the bike turns in better and easier, I’d say that this is a result of dropping the front as discussed. Also the Michelin Power RS is much better that what I had before, and I never had any issues. Naturally I took my time getting up to speed to make sure that the tyres warmed up, especially considering that they were brand new and I don’t use warmers.

As for suspension I wanted to poke your brain a bit more as to if it is possible, but more importantly worthwhile (or just a waste of money) to upgrade my suspension, either by changing some, or all the internals of the forks, or changing the whole front end altogether. I suppose what I’m not sure about is “how bad” the forks are, and if the fork body (the black outer tube and the shinny inner tube) could work with different components, and (and this is a big and) if someone like me would really tell the difference?

Thank you so much for your comments and patience. You’ve really given me great help and guidance (seriously)!

Thank you Dave!!!

Hey Dave,

Hope your race weekend went well, and thank you for the test plan.
I followed it to the letter, reinstalling the 11nm springs in the forks. I went with my plan for the shock and increased the spring rate to a 10.5 from a 9.5. It was a gamble, but I'm pleased to say it worked. By the third session I settled with 5mm of preload, 12 clicks out rebound and 9 clicks out on the forks which were flush. I added the 2mm of ride height to the shock (299mm) 12 out on rebound, 11 out on compression with 12mm of preload.
Lap times with a full tank were 1.37's / 38's with a lot less rider fatigue. For qualifying I went out for 15mins with 8 liters of fuel and did a 1.35.028 which put our team second in class, and was my personal best!!!!! Happy days!! Tyre wear on the rear was perfect, but I think I missed on the front by a one psi as it showed signs of slight overheating.
The race the next day we ended up finishing the race in 4th place with 1 round to go and a close 3rd in the championship. Thanks again!!!

Hi Dave.

Thanks so much for your help today, the bike felt amazing by the afternoon!

I didn't get a chance to connect with you before I had to leave, so I rode home on the track settings - lots of "feedback"!

These are the settings we ended up at, would you be able to give me some street settings based on these?

Front: REB: 14 clicks from hard COMP: 7 clocks from hard

Rear; REB: 11 clicks from hard COMP: 10 clicks from hard

Troy Cook AustraliaTroy Cook Australia

I entered settings you gave me, including tyre pressure up to required psi.

As so as I started out of my main street onto the straightaway I knew it was different, as in softer and the bumps I usually felt were kinda no drama!

I headed for the place I usually ride, and to be honest I was looking for something to be not quite right etc lol considering what is was like before a stiff as a board in the front I felt everything in my wrists.

From where it was its a totally new bike to ride.

The zip tie was 30mm from the bottom casting so I just left it alone because it was so enjoyable to ride with let me tell you, like 99% full confidence in the front end which I never had (it was always twitchy and if you hit a bump mid corner you would **** your pants) but now it soaked it up no trouble so I'm really stoked Dave, truely.👌

Is it perfect, prob not but from where it was its 100% better. I'm a realist so I know it could prob be tweaked on more but for the moment with the roads iIride and my riding ability I'm calling it good for the next few rides until i get familiar with the new settings👌.

Once again Dave i thank you sincerely as your help is invaluable once again.

Thanks again mate, I'm one happy kangaroo 👌

Dave,

Just wanted to say thanks for working with me at Sears. I had a great time and the bike worked well (save for some for some issues with these basket case electrical systems).
My friend Ron (Hypermotard with the tired front forks) and I actually packed up and drove all night to Miller to get him racing with AHRMA on Saturday. One of his friends was complaining about a hard steering, chattering front end on his Buell. I put a zip tie on his fork and noticed that he was only using about 1/2 the travel. I backed out on the preload considerably and sped up rebound a touch. After his next session he came in with a big smile. "It's night and day! Feels like an SV! Much more confidence inspiring on corner entry".
Armed with the great knowledge you've provided, I was able to make his day much more enjoyable. Thanks again!
Cheers,
AJ

In two weekends with these tires I've got a set up that I'm comfortable and safe with. Best money I've spent on this bike along with the revalve and adding a tuned ECU that has sorted the awful low speed fueling these bikes have been known for.
I now have the "best streetbike in the world" that is actually the best. Comfortable, almost plush on the street and a laser on the track. With fueling control to match.
Thanks so much Dave.

Hello Dave,
I wanted to thank you for your setup/suspension settings for my 07' R6.
i had Sport Rider magazine's settings before, and yours were far better! I felt the difference straight away with the bike feeling much more balanced that gave me more confidence to push hard. Also, my tire wear was much improved.
So glad I reached out to you!

AS A ROADRACE MOTORCYCLE NEWBIE..

I started at California Superbike School. First track day, bought a 2013 salvage Daytona 675 within weeks and completed 8 full trackdays on Nov 19th.

I learned more from a half day private lesson from Dave Moss at $350 than from  2 days with CSS (this included his complete suspension set up of your bike).

I liked the fact that Moss's personalized teaching is derived from his lead follow video interpretation of your style. He adapts your particular "idiom" to the necessary series of events that MUST occur during your laps to increase speed and safety, while NOT enticing you to adopt difficult to attain body positions, lean angles, or "too fast too soon" issues.

This guy knows more about going fast than most, but tailors concepts of attaining speed to you and how you ride. I continue to reexamine that day's voice over video from Moss...when I feel as if I've cleared most of my beginner hurdles, I will repeat.

Hi Dave

No track days booked in the near future so...
  • Static sag hot - unknown will run hard on the road and report back.
  • Fork travel - unknown will run on road and replicate braking to best of abilities and report back. (Zip tie on the fork leg?)
  • Fork oil and fork height are factory.
As I'm in the UK and you're in California I guess a consultation session is tricky to arrange.
However, happy to pay for advice so far, as it is handling MUCH better than before using your fixed settings. I will try and get another day in this summer, and then maybe Almeria in the autumn.
Tom Gitto, San Francisco, USATom Gitto, San Francisco, USA

Hi Dave,

It was nice to finally meet you at Sonoma this past weekend.  I appreciate the time you took to make the tweaks to my R6's suspension, but more importantly the education on WHY you made the changes you did and HOW to eyeball for what's going on with the tires and how that connects to my riding.  It helped me get a bit deeper understanding of the bike/rider as an interconnected "system" being applied in the track environment.

Also, it's nice to have an experienced, accomplished racer give some tips and encouragement to a newbie like me.  You obviously had plenty to do so I really appreciate that you gave a few minutes of focused attention to offer patient explanations to my novice questions. Thanks again!

Dave,

You have no idea the tremendous amount of help you have been to me and
the amount of knowledge I have gained from a few simple emails and watching
a couple hours of videos on your site. I can't say thank you enough!

If there is anything I can do to help promote your business/services or even
on a personal level please don't hesitate to ask. You are what every
vendor/supplier/ and instructor should be rolled into one very
knowledgeable man.

I'm sure I will be bugging you again with some simple nonsense I cant
figure out or don't yet understand but I have a base knowledge enough to
discuss, understand, and start the tuning process on my own.

Thank you again Dave,

 

Simon Quick, UK
I quit racing at club level some 16 years ago after a few big accidents and to be fair I had lost my bottle. I never really paid much attention to bike set and the approach had always been "brake later, accelerate harder and lean it over more..." Which is probably the reason I fell off quite a lot. I decided I wanted another crack at it at the ripe old age of 52, but this time I'm going to concentrate on set up.
I Googled it and came across Dave Moss, this was some 2 years ago now. There was SO MUCH free advice and videos offered and he's known by almost everybody I talk to about it. I must have watched every video 10 times now and read every article even more. I plagued him with questions on Messenger and ALWAYS got a helpful response. I recently had my first out on track again at Donington Park on my road bike which I've now race prepared using Dave's recommended improvements as well as a few toys of my own choosing. It'll only ever be a track bike now.
The first session there were quite a few things that needed attention and during the 6 sessions of the day using his methodical approach I cured or massively improved the bike. It now has no geometry tears, the damping only needed a few tweeks from the base setting I put on it and the tyre wear is almost spot on.
During the course of the day I dropped 15.2 seconds off my lap times, the final session saw every lap consistently within 0.4 seconds of each other and my confidence has gone through the roof... I know there are still loads of improvements to be had, but thanks to Dave I have the confidence and understanding to have a go and I can't thank him enough for sharing his years of experience.
If you're looking to improve your bike be it on the road or on the track, I can definitely recommend Dave's approach and method of setting it up. It won't turn you into Rossi, but it'll give your bike the potential to amaze you, give you tons of confidence and feeling, and the opportunity to show what you can do.

The man is a legend in my book... top bloke 🙂

Thanks Dave, for all your help and guidance.

Hi Dave!

I didn’t get a chance to return to ProItalia to thank you again for the tune! I enjoyed the ride so much that I kept going. My Blue R6 actually turns now.

It was a little funny how shocked you looked when I told you I ran it at Buttonwillow with the previous setup. I feel a lot more stable on the bike and my confidence approaching the corners has significantly increased.

Thanks for saving my life. Thanks for doing what you do. And thanks for being the best at it.

From here on out, I only trust Dave Moss with my suspension tuning! Cheers!

Damien BannonDamien BannonThe Set Up...

Dave set up my bike the improvement is unbelievable, I’d recommend anyone who rides get it set up by dave.

Scott PetersonScott PetersonProcessing...

Thanks for showing me the process of how to learn; having a ‘map’ of how to approach it. I understand it is a process and a dynamic one over time and changing conditions but now feel I have a better understanding of what/how and why each setting should be approached. I like starting with one thing and changing it 25% and then another +25%, making notes and arriving at too much one way or the other and then working back and forth in smaller increments to find the right setting. As my understanding grows and the fear of unknown goes away with experience I am now confident I will soon have a setup that both works and gets the bike geometry with me on it to work in balance. Today’s ride after two days worth of stop/settings change/start/stop was fantastic, best the bike has ever felt.

Amazing! He’s a great coach, straight forward and honest. Even though my time with him was short, not one second of the whole hour was wasted. He gauges where you are skill wise and adjusts as needed. Got my list to work on. The videos are great!!! He is truly dedicated to helping riders in this industry.

Dave sorted my 09’ Aprilia’s suspension quite well! It was a terribly rough ride- like a bull ride! Now it’s feeling like a bike should and I can go through bumpy corners without getting airborne!

I was attending my first Carter@TheTrack at Thunderhill. I was introduced to Dave and he recommended I bring my bike over so he could take a look at it. He quickly assessed and then adjusted my rear suspension looked at my tires made some notes and told me to come back after a few sessions.

First thing in the morning I brought bike back he then adjusted the front asked how the bike was feeling? And asked if at the end of the day if I would swing by.

End of a long 2 first time track days and really the first time on this bike Dave went over how different my tires were wearing just by me improving on my front braking, turns, and acceleration.

Very informative it terms anyone (even a rookie) could understand. I would recommend Dave Moss tuning to everyone no matter the bike you ride. We never stop learning.

Thank you again and hope to see you soon,

Robin

I have had 2 of my bikes tuned by Dave and all I can say is WOW! It's like riding a completely new bike when he is done. If you let him know what's bothering you he will most likely have a solution and he will also fix things you didn't even know you were stuggling with. All around great service and great guy full of knowledge that is hard to find. 10/10 would recommend to anybody I know.... See MoreSee Less

Dave, Thank you so much for making my first track day the best it could be. I've seen motorcycle tuners at bike events before and wondered if it was just snake oil. Attending my first track day I was willing to give everything a shot to get the most out of my investment for the day. You worked with me after each session to tune my bike to me. After the first tune, I could not believe how much different the bike felt. I cannot believe I rode it for 4-5 years incorrectly set up. Balancing the suspension and fine tuning it throughout the day gave me such a more comfortable and relaxing ride, not to mention a safer vehicle. Thanks again from me and my four kids, who you taught and entertained. #49... See MoreSee Less

I only recently began riding motorcycles two years ago with a local minimoto league. Having an automotive background I was familiar with a lot of suspension related concepts, however, motorcycle geometry and suspension was foreign.

I raced the large part of two years fumbling through different modifications on my bike to help behaviors on the bike I didn't prefer, admittedly, without really knowing what I was doing. Once I discovered the Dave Moss Master Class video on youtube, I then began to get an idea of what I was doing vs. what the bike was doing and how to correct those behaviors of the bike I didn't like. I pretty much took the time to read and study every DM video and resource I could get my hands on.

Only after discovering these principles did I discover how bad my bike was. Greatly oversprung forks, hydraulic lock, under dampened, etc.. New springs, correct oil levels, correct dampening, sag set, I now had a bike that rode COMPLETELY different... literal night and day. I went from fighting the bike around the entire track that was unstable over fast corners, to the compliant, neutral, and predictable bike I had been after.

I dropped a full seconds of my previous personal best lap time, and I'm still re-learning the bike. It was apparently noticeable to others because I had two people mention how "planted" I looked the since properly setting up the bike with no mention of it to anyone prior.

I owe it to you, Dave, for putting your wealth of knowledge out there. I genuinely enjoy the tinkering aspect of motorcycles and this gives me a great foundation to see what's possible. Although I'll never have the experience you do, I'll be sure to speak highly of your services and knowledge and lend it to others any chance possible.

Thank you!

I was really surprised by Dave's mentality in the sense that the isn't running this as a business but as a person who genuinely cares and has a passion for what he does. I've been struggling for a few decades on suspension but he nails it in a few moments in terms of how a layman / woman can understand. He really makes me feel knowledgeable but in a contextual way.

Thank you.

Dave is simply awesome, I redid my forks on my bike and nearly regretted having done it as it was very harsh and heavy feeling. It was bad enough that I didn't enjoy riding the bike on the street very much. Dave made a few adjustments and explained each one, what he was changing why and what it affected and really went through why the bike felt like it did before he changed the setting. All I can say is I will gladly bring him any bike I own from here on out. It was an absolute night and day difference, I never thought a sport bike could ride so nice. The bike feels so much more planted in every situation. I could not be happier, and can't recommend Dave's work shops and setups enough.... See MoreSee Less

He also adjusted my suspension, apparently, it was not adjusted to me even though I paid a bit of money to the previous guy. Disappointed, but that's a different story. After the adjusting, I was able to go into corners carrying a higher speed.

Like he says, pay it forward! Thanks Dave, I will seek you out soon!

Dave is known primarily for his race pedigree and setups and rightfully so. I've watched his videos trying to glean information for my strictly street bike ('13 Triumph Street Triple R) and tried to adjust the suspension the best I could but as Dave says, "You don't know what you don't know." Ignorance, however, is not always bliss. My bike was harsh, skittish and rattled my teeth across bumps and required me to muscle it through turns. A half hour Skype with Dave, lots of his listening to me, sharing his knowledge and then an email from him (on a race weekend no less) on a process of dialing in my bike, for me, which made it a process and dialed it in for the way I ride and the rides I make... made all the difference. The bike is smooth, settled, balanced and confidence inspiring. At speed in turns over uneven roads, it stays planted and easy to lean allowing for a lot more nuance and subtle inputs to have a better experience on the bike. His process for me was systematic, one thing at a time and in doing what he said to the letter teaches you to learn the bike and dial it by macro then micro adjustments to find the best balance of a lot of variables. The bike is just a delight to ride. Dave also teaches that nothing is static, so things change over time and in different conditions; but now I have a basic understanding of at least my bike and the kernel of shared knowledge to adjust it as needed moving forward. Rather than just give you settings and being done with it, he taught me the process to do it myself. Priceless. Learning never stops so to quote my email to Dave: "What I plan on doing now is riding and then redoing each setting, one at a time and again 'listening' to what the bike suspension tells me over a well known stretch of road to check myself and keep the learning curve going.

Thanks for showing me the process of how to learn; having a 'map' of how to approach it. I understand it is a process and a dynamic one over time and changing conditions but now feel I have a better understanding of what/how and why each setting should be approached. I like starting with one thing and changing it 25% and then another +25%, making notes and arriving at too much one way or the other and then working back and forth in smaller increments to find the right setting. As my understanding grows and the fear of unknown goes away with experience I am now confident I will soon have a setup that both works and gets the bike geometry with me on it to work in balance. Today's ride after two days worth of stop/settings change/start/stop was fantastic, best the bike has ever felt."

I've been following Dave's online material for a while now, and recently my Ninja 1000 needed a new set of tires and I wanted to try a new brand but stay in the same size tires. So thanks to Dave I knew to measure the old tires vs the new tires and found out the rear was 1/2" taller. I rode the bike with the new tires and the bike was essentially un-rideable for me, the bike wanted to fall over in an uncontrollable manner. But since I knew the rear was a 1/2" taller I simply raised the front by 1/2" and the bike was fixed. So if I didn't know to check tire diameter between tires, I would have wasted money on a new set of tires that would have made my bike un-rideable. A lot of Dave's knowledge is preventative, so it seems like a lot of work till something happens to you and then it saves you hundreds of dollars, and makes the bike safer and more fun....

Met Dave at Thunderhill West last weekend. He made some changes to the setup on my bike which helped tremendously. On day two I stopped in to tell him I shaved seconds off my lap times.

I can't wait to get back and learn more!

I can't thank Dave enough for all the help he gave me .
I bought a graves Yamaha r6, two weeks before race season started and only had one track day to test the bike, so I went down to NJMP and with a few laps my front tire was destroyed, not a cold tear not a hot tear, it was one of those tire wear difficult to identify.
So now I got a bike that need serious work and I only have a week before race, so I got in touch with Dave knowing that he was at the BSB helping a team . Dave shortly got back to me even on a busy schedule. I gave him all the info I had about the bike and we set up an apt to talk on the phone . So Dave took his time to look at all the pics I had sent him ( fork position, rear axle , shock length etc..) and pretty much knowing it was GEOMETRY problem he send me a detailed step by step chassis set up.
So after making the changes I go to my race weekend at CMP, after doing my fist practice session I already see my front tire is looking great no problem, so from that point on it was time to race and push hard .
With the hep of Dave we were able to win 2 races take tree 2nd place and 2 3rd place finish, I was very happy with the results ��...
Thanks again Dave �

All the limitations I've had with the bike and with tyres that were holding me back disappeared after he set the bike up for me.
I thought suspension was only something racers had to worry about, but that myth is well and truly gone and I'm now a huge advocate for what Dave can do, which is setting your bike up correctly for your weight and riding style.
Having my bike set up properly has given me loads more confidence on the track, and has also made my road riding more comfortable (and prob safer) too!

I am not yet even a track day rider. I went to the California super bike school level one and then began my search for knowledge. I stumbled upon Dave Moss on YouTube and became enthralled. I have messages him countless times and always received a response and recommendation. I went from being afraid to mess with my suspension settings to eager to learn the "what happens if...". I now have not only a better understanding of what happens if I do this to the tuning but a better understanding of my suspension and my riding. He has made my 2014 gsxr 750 an extension of my riding, or more accurately a tool that I trust to do what I want. He has given me the time and advice that one could expect from a paid suspension supervisor on a factory team, and yet I am only someone at the ground floor.

I had my first track day in August of 2015. While in the pits, I heard the name Dave Moss mentioned by at least three people. I asked who Dave Moss was, and they steered me towards his Facebook and YouTube channel.

I ended up asking him for his thoughts on where my Daytona should be set to suspension wise. His recommendation was spot on. The bike felt amazing and took bumps in corners better than it ever has.

His video on servicing R6 forks gave me the confidence to attempt my own. It was as easy as he makes it look. He also gave me some pointers about a rear shock swap I was doing.

Thanks to Dave, I can get my suspension dialed in quickly and easily every single track day. Saves a fortune in tires and makes my bike a lot safer to ride. I can't praise the guy enough. He's the real deal.

Dave is the most amazing coach. This year is the end of my 2nd year of attending track days at my home track (thunder hills). Last year I had 1 coaching session with Dave and this year also. Reflecting back on the experiences I’ve definitely seen a huge improvement from last year. This year my lap times are slower overall but Dave has done an amazing job coaching and mentoring me helping my to overcome my fears and emotions. As a man deep into my 40’s, I have an awesome career, very supportive wife and wonderful family. The days have long past when I was fearless and never gave a thought in regard to personal safety and heaven forbid if I was to get in a serious enough crash to affect my ability to work and provide for my family. This apprehension to personal injury has definitely slowed my progress and hampers my confidence. These emotions are best described as fear, self preservation, survival instinct etc.

With Dave’s amazing ability to assess you skills and custom tailor a coaching plan for you, I made this video from my last track day at thunder hills on 10.17.15 that I hope will inspire someone with the same hesitations to enjoy there passion, let go and turn off those little voices inside your head.

Dave….Thanks again we are all so blessed to have such an inspiration and leader as you in our lives and what you give and represent to the motorcycle riding community.

I hope one of you out there get something out of this video:

I attended a suspension night with Dave in Wellington New Zealand a couple of years ago, he set my suspension up on my CBR600RR properly and it still feels good, but better than the set up was what he taught me that night. My Dad has just gotten a bike after not having had one for many many years, it's a 2007 Suzuki GS500F which I went to look at for him and I found the suspension to be hugely lacking, the front was oscillating badly and probably had the original fork oil in it still. I did some research and found they are known for their front suspension being soft and bottoming out, apparently they were set up for a 60kg rider from the factory, of which my Dad is just a touch bigger than that. The front was off the bike within 20 minutes of picking it up and out with the old 10w oil, I replaced it with a heavier weight and once it was all back together the difference was huge, I also adjusted the rear to the correct amount of pre sag. Thanks to what he taught me I have been able to maintain my own suspension and that of my Dads new bike as well, there are now 2 better handling bikes on the road with 2 much happier riders thanks to Dave!...

Recently participated in an afternoon coaching session out on the track at Laguna Seca. WOW, what an eye opening experience! We all know Dave is a wizard with suspension, tires, etc., and now I add to that list - "rider refurb". Dave's ability to watch me on the track, review the video, and make the adjustments in my technique made instant differences in my confidence and ability. While you may expect that, he also gave me huge insights into how a professional "rides the track" - flowing from turn to turn, setting up well in advance, subtle differences in turn points, and the list goes on. I felt like he was working my mental game every bit as much as the mechanics of me riding the machine. That one session got me past a plateau I've been stuck with for months. The best recommendation I can give....I've signed up for another session and plan to make it a habit! Thank you very much Dave for helping me become faster/safer!... See MoreSee Less

Regardless if you need help with suspension, ergonomics or coaching, Dave is the THE person to go to. Not only does he possess a vast amount of knowledge, he also freely shares it with straight up no-bullshit answers.

Before the last AFM weekend I had the pleasure of doing an afternoon of coaching with Dave. With the knowledge and skills gained from that session, I dropped almost 10 seconds throughout the weekend. How much would you pay for a performance part that allows you to drop 10 seconds? The answer is - you can't buy such a thing!

Dave also previously set up the suspension on my Daytona 675R. Despite already being set up by another "specialist", he managed to make the bike much more responsive going into corners, and more stable when settled in them.

I've been privileged enough to have several opportunities of having Dave as my private coach. Each time I've been impressed by his precise method of teaching. But I've been even more impressed by what a true gentleman Dave is. It is hard not to love Dave both as a coach and as a person.... See MoreSee Less

Set up my RC51 years ago at Thunderhill. Made a night and day difference. Very accomodating and takes the time to hear you out to understand your suspension goals in an effort to set you up for success. Can't wait to have him set up my current bike! Now, if only I knew when he was going to be close by.... See MoreSee Less

Breaks it down simple, easy to understand. Gives enough detail to be relevant to each topic. Always concerned with any questions that come up. Helps riders of all levels to adjust and become more in control of what they do on their motorcycles.... See MoreSee Less

I feel like I got a totally new bike today thanks to Dave! I really appreciated his time, knowledge and ability to talk to me in a manner that I can understand (realize I don't know much about suspension set up - BUT that changed to knowing a lot more today). My bike rides and responds as it never had before. Thanks Dave!... See MoreSee Less

A fair dinkum suspension Guru and Master of all things Motorcycle. Happily sharing a wealth of knowledge, which in turn minimises time spent in the long drawn out process of trial and error.... See MoreSee Less

I have followed Dave's online videos via U Stream and On The Throttle also feel the track and i can only say i have learned loads. He is a great charismatic Guy who will spend as much time with you as you need to understand. Even from the other side of the pond he will devote time to aiding other riders. In my eyes a real gem in the biking world who cuts the B/S to give you the results you need. Cheers for all your time Dave... See MoreSee Less

It usually takes me all weekend to get back up to speed. After morning warm up and approaching Dave for advise, within 8 min of the next session and his pit wall tweaks, the bike felt better than ever and 0.5s of a PB. Thanks for being so approachable and sharing your knowledge. ZX10 #125.... See MoreSee Less
