Suspension settings on 07 Model

I read somewhere that the comfort setting on ESA suspension is softer on the 07 models? Is this right? Is there any difference in suspension settings between 06 and 07 models?

i certainly haven't read that
i'm pretty sure that NO changes were made to the ESA/suspension for the GT in '07, compared to '06... there just wouldn't have been time to do that

The suspension is all computer control...

BMW should put in a few more settings...

Take a look at some of the posts regarding the V 7 upgrade.

I'm sure that a mention is made of ESA settings being changed.

I do know that my bike is very soft on comfort, almost makes me seasick on the wrong roads so I hardly use it.

Normal is fine for most riding, if still a little soft on compression but Sport is very sharp and a real useful setting for faster riding. Compression and rebound are spot on for me at 17stone on most roads.

Is it just me or does the GT get a real attitude when on sport setting, it seems to want to go faster as well.

Wadham, you might be right ,it could have been the V7.0 software ,not the 07 year model they were talking about which changed the comfort suspension setting. I suppose that the 07 models coming out will all have the 7.0 version ,and hence soft comfort setting as standard.

The ESA settings (Sport, Normal, Comfort) are a mechanical function of the shock absorbers. The preload settings are also built into the rear shock. The CIP update will not affect the suspension. As far as I know the shock part numbers have not changed between the two years.
