Good info! Couple of things. . . . . .Consider upgrading your front fork's internals to a "modern" setup with a cartridge emulator kit. Properly set up front forks with springs, fork oil level / weight and an emulator will transform both the handling and comfort performance of our dinosaur front forks. Racetech (www.racetech.com) can provide the emulator kit, single rate springs and oil recommendations. SNIP
ya i know emulators will make a big difference... but you guys are missing the point i did these mods on the CHEAP! not with some race budget... and the average joe is not goign to know how to setup his suspension "right" i was just pointing them in the right direction to get things "happy"
well i havent used a stearing dampner for mine yet .....
In my opinion I think if your stock springs are within spec, get the emulators, and fresh springs when you need them.real budget improvement would be new seals, dust caps and oil.
So, concerning the front springs, how do you check them to see if they are "in spec"?
Well, thats cool, the one guy had the emulators listed at 59.99, and springs were more than that. Does anyone know if the XS650 emulators would work in a CB650? It also talks about drilling the damper rod, can anyone shed some light on that? I'll have to measure my springs, already got the kit to do the seals as one side is leaking.Thanks,Brandon
Thank you sir. Guess I should measure the old ones before I buy new ones.
Fair enough. So, according to what you are saying, if going the emulator route, which I am, the Progressive springs are not ideal?
