Just watch how fast the whole rear shock assembly or fork cartridges can get swapped! These techs can probably do all of this in their sleep I'm sure.....

Anyway, I got a kick out of this...enjoy...

Yeah that's pretty interesting. I remember someone talking about suspension adjustments on modern sport bikes. "you've got 100 different combinations you can set on your bike. 99 of them are wrong." With a GP bike it's probably more like "you've go 1000 different settings. 900 of them are wrong and 99 are tantalizingly close."
For any body who's turned a wrench it's interesting to see how well thought out and easy they've made it to make adjustments on the bikes.
