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.

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.

My bike is still with my mechanic, I have some records I'll pass on if youd like. I'm 80kg + gear.

I'm getting close to nailing the optimum base settings , (after so many mistakes , I should be)!

Are you running Mupo cartridges too?

Should compare swingarm length too with those cog changes.

My mechanic is Ben of Desmo Sport , Troy Bayliss's team so i've had geometry set up to match. Pity the my pace wont match

Cool thanks and yes please. Iím also 80+ with gear. Probably around 87 or so.

Iím only running the rear at the moment. Have not ridden her yet. Just put the shock on yesterday.

I it currently set to 20 clicks out on rebound and 9 on the LS comp. Have not touched the HS.

I had the geometry etc set my Motouno here in SA. He does many on the 1299 race bikes of the guys here in to different classes and series. From what point to what point do you measure on the swing arm.

Measure from swing arm axle centre to wheel axle centre. The extra link I have done probably hasnt changed that much. I have seen the wsbk extended swing arm by 40mm . They are expensive .
What spring did they put in? I have a 90 but have it on full preload , will be putting the 95 back in . I was told not to adjust the HS comp setting .
What tires are you running?

Rebound 25 clicks out
LS Compression 2 clicks out
HS leave alone
Preload fully wound
90kg spring
20mm sag

* I really need to go up a spring rate and I could get back to 20 rebound, 6-8 comp, less preload and still have 20mm sag.

Even so, with Sc1's the wear is perfect coming off the track hot at 28-29 psi
29-30psi wear is good but the tire isn't working enough.
Getting slight raising of the sipe on the middle wear marker but i'm not chasing that.
This is on Phillip Island , which has a very agressive surface and always on the left side.
Thanks from Mafiaboy

Cool thanks bud �������� Once I have done a few track days I’ll let you know what I end up with.

I have the 90 spring too. Swing arm looks like 54.7cm. Does that sound correct ?

I’m running the super corsa v3 200/60
Thanks from Calderara di Reno
