Tested: Motoklik – set your suspension up perfectly!
Excellent suspension is one of the most vital components of speed around a motocross circuit whatever the level. A fast bike with bad suspension won’t help as much as a slower bike with great suspension.
Suspension is crucial for trust, speed and safety but setting it up is complicated for most riders. For many, it’s a bit of a guessing game but that guesswork is now redundant thanks to Motoklik, a revolutionary company making great suspension set-up available everyone.
Motoklik is an easy to use, easy to fit, robust suspension setup and lap-timing system for use in motocross.
In short, once the sensors are on, everything can be done on your smartphone and gives you, to the very last click, how your suspension should be set up from hard pack to sand, the sensors on the bike are tracking everything from lap times, and gives information as detailed as relative speed based on track roughness to earlier in the day as well as when and where the bike bottoms out.
It’s impressive and could revolutionise how the weekend warrior is able to set up their bike.
So, does it really work? We tested with club rider Richard Greer to get feel of how the product really can benefit the average rider, and spoke to Stuart Edmonds , who currently uses the technology at the Pro level, we also caught up with MotoKlick CEO Jens Koepke to learn more about the product that’s available here.
From club rider to pro, the reflections were positive.
Stuart Edmonds: “I don’t think anyone who gets it shouldn’t get a benefit out of it. If they don’t they are doing something wrong. Straight away you stick ot on your bike and you get your laptimes and suspension combined. It gives you a massive input on increasing speed, increasing stability on the bike and being able to ride faster for longer and being comfortable.
“Sometimes in myself you get a bit caught up with is it too hard or soft. To be able to go and look at the date and be able to tell straight away, ‘yeah, it’s actually too hard.’ It’s an asset for me to have.”
Richard Greer: “It is going to help. It gives you the ideal set-up for you and that track. You would become a better rider and better test rider just by using the system and making the changes it recommends and go from there.”
“I could feel the improvement, I could feel the suspension moving more. We took five clicks off the front and a few clicks off the back. When I made the adjustments I could go through the bumps, there wasn’t as much fighting with the suspension.”
