Motorcycle Geometry

The foundation of a well handling bike is motorcycle geometry.  Professional race teams have known this for years, and now we bring this same technology to you at a affordable price.  At Velocity Calibrations, we use the Scheibner CMS to not only measure your geometry, but also properly optimize your bike’s handling.  Together with your riding style and the Scheibner, we will create a formidable race bike to get you on the podium!


Scheibner CMS (Chassis Optimization System) – $300

The Scheibner CMS offers an excellent option to evaluate geometry for both racing and track day purposes.  Based off an infrared camera system, the CMS provides a highly repeatable platform to retrieve key frame and geometric values to evaluate your bikes handling characteristics.  These measurements are given in tenths of a millimeter and tenths of a degree and include:

Key Frame Measurement Points Scheibner CMS geometry optimization

Rake

Trail

Yoke Offset

Swingarm Angle

Swingarm Length

Squat/Anti-Squat Values

Wheelbase

 

Once measured, we verify your frame to the system’s database of over 1500 chassis.  This allows us to consider any anomalies in your frame during the setup process.  Only then do we have a complete “snapshot” of your bike’s stance and are ready to start optimizing your geometry.

Using the system, we are able to simulate changes to the bike to see how they affect the geometry stance.  These changes are then applied to the motorcycle giving you the proper geometry setup based on your riding skill/style, frame anomalies, tire manufacture and size, suspension components etc.

On average, riders will see a drop of 2 to 4 seconds after setup.
