CTW takes many calls and more e-mails on what machine is the best for motorcycle fork and damper testing. We tried to answer all the questions with a PDF explanation.
For motorcycle testing, we sell several machines. It always comes down to the customer’s budget. I will detail as much information as I can and send pictures of forks in the machine.
First, we need to understand if this is a motorcycle for the street, a track circuit that is smooth (GP) or what is called moto-cross (on dirt, lots of jumps) here in the USA. Each of these involve a front fork but they see very different velocities in the fork.
