Dirt Biking Alone Is It Any Fun? (Plus Is It Safe to Dirt Bike On Your Own?)

Dirt biking alone is fun but dangerous too, especially if you go trail riding alone. It’s not always easy to find a dirt bike riding buddy who is free at the same time as you, but if you ride alone there are safety risks as you may have an off-road accident with no one to help if you have a crash.

How to set dirt bike sag by yourself to your weight using a Slacker V3 (The dirt bike sag 101 series)

How to set dirt bike sag by yourself to your weight can be done using the Motool Slacker V3 digital suspension tuner. Firstly, you need to measure your bike’s free sag, static sag and then rider sag (race sag). What if your weight is heavier than average? You will probably need to shorten sag (i.e. tighten the shock lock nut and turn it clockwise). But what if your weight is less than average? You’ll probably need to lengthen sag (i.e. loosen the shock lock nut and turn it anticlockwise)

What is free sag on a dirt bike (Article in the dirt bike sag 101 series)

Free sag on a dirt bike is the suspension measurement with the wheel of your dirt bike off the ground. This means the suspension has no weight on it whatsoever. When we talk about sag, we are talking about how much your dirt bike “sags”. Or put this another way, and in particular with reference to “free sag” it’s how much your shock absorber drops when there’s no weight pushing through the suspension from the wheel.
