MUPO Suspension Settings - advice needed

Hi, I have had the front and rear MUPO suspension kit installed in my rebuilt 2015 Panigale 1299. Btw, I have the OEM Sachs shock for sale if anyone wants it.

I plan to use my Panigale this year for both street and track (and likely convert it 100% to a track bike next year). I am 5'8" tall and 170 lbs. I will have for sure the suspension professionally tuned in a couple of months at the track, but for now I would like some advice on which settings (front and rear) would be a good starting point.

And hear from anyone else with experience with MUPO suspensions.

Gianni

I have the simplified race version on my race bike front and rear on my base 1299 . I dont have the adjustable spring rate kit(K119) , was a bit skeptical on it. The clicks on the cartridge totally depends where the nut on the rod is wound to. one advice I could offer up is, get the correct spring rate. They will supply way to stiff for your weight. I have had issues getting feel with the spring rate supplied to me . I have just had the cartridges revalved and the preload threads repaired . There was a fault from the factory with the machining of a needle to seat in one leg . All fixed but the springs were way to firm with the revalving maybe having an effect. 80kg 1.1 rate in the front, but the 90 in the shock was ok . I have just put 95 Ohlins springs in the front and will test at Phillip Island this week . I have played to MUCH with geometry settings and have put everything back to std ride heights. I was told not to touch the HS Comp on the shock just the LSpeed setting.

"There was a fault from the factory with the machining of a needle to seat in one leg ."
We had the same Issue

"I don't have the adjustable spring rate kit(K119) , was a bit skeptical on it. The clicks on the cartridge totally depends where the nut on the rod is wound to."
Not sure if I understand you right... Setting the spring rate does not affect the ride height more than changing springs.

If you have the K911 system: the anti rotation screw is exactly that. Don't screw it to bottom. The pieces must be able to slide up and down.
