MotoGP 23 San Marino Setup: San Marino Grand Prix setup guide - Misano guide

The MotoGP San Marino round is hosted by the technical and tricky Misano Circuit in Italy, and we're walking you through our best setup for it in MotoGP 23!

We're so impressed by MotoGP 23 and we showed exactly why in our full review right here. MotoGP 23 is probably our pick for the best motorbike game of the year so far, but it's difficult to master.

In MotoGP 23's Single Player Career Mode, Round 13 of your first full season takes place at Misano. The San Marino GP is the thirteenth race on the full calendar, but isn't featured on the short calendar.

Here's our setup guide for Misano in MotoGP 23!

MotoGP 23 San Marino setup

Misano has hosted the San Marino Grand Prix since the event was revived in 2007. The San Marino GP was on the MotoGP calendar in brief stints in the 1980s and 90s, with Misano sharing hosting duties with Mugello.

This is the second of the two Italian MotoGP rounds, as despite being named the San Marino Grand Prix, Misano is located in Italy. Misano has a great mix of medium-length straights and both slow and medium-speed corners.

MotoGP 23 San Marino Setup Tyres

Starting with the tyres, we recommend going for a Hard on the front and a Medium on the rear axle. This will give you good and consistent levels of grip through the race without having to conserve your tyres.

A Medium tyre on the front would mean that you need to tyre save going into the final laps of the race, so we don't recommend it.

Front pre-load needs to be low at 1 to allow for more consistent steering through the high-speed corners in Barcelona. Oil quality should be slightly higher at 3, with the front spring hardness at 4.

The front fork compression is best at 4, with the fork extension down at 2.

On the rear, the rear pre-load should be down at 1, with the Swingarm connector around 3. Spring hardness should also be at 5, with shock absorber compression at 2 and the extension also at 4 to help the bike's overall grip.

Vehicle geometry

For your Vehicle Geometry, the steering head inclination should be up at 1 to allow for more responsive steering.

The trail should be down at 1 but the steering plate needs to be up at 5. Lastly, the rear swingarm length needs to be around 5.

Your gears should be at the default settings for Misano, with the exception of top gear, which should be up at 5. This will strike the ideal balance between top speed and acceleration.

The slipper clutch should be at 3 to help the bike's steering responsiveness.

Brake System

In Misano, there aren't many big braking zones, so you could go with smaller brakes for a change.

However, we think that a 340mm high mass brake on the front and a 220mm on the rear is the best way to go here.

As usual, electronic aids definitely come in handy here. You'll need to turn all of them up quite high to keep your bike on the road. Traction Control is best at 4, as there are numerous big traction zones around here.

Engine Braking should be cranked up to 4 in order to shave speed around the long corners. Anti-wheelie should also be at 4.

Power mapping is best at 3 for a flying lap, but you'll need to turn this around during some points in the race. This is to save the engine and fuel.

All of these can be adjusted out on track using the HUD in the bottom-right of the screen.
