Tom, what was done to change the forks to their present configuration?
As I remember, you're kind'a an average size guy. Check the Sonic Springs web site for the right springs for your weight, then get them from Rich at Sonic. (Or ride up to Blaine and get a pair from Blair.) If there has been no change to the damping mechanism inside the forks, get a liter of 10 wt fork oil. Set your spacer length and preload to give you a sag of close to 40 mm. There is a lot more that can be done to tame the front damping with either RaceTech cartridge emulators or Ricor Intiminators damping valves.
(Is Blair actually in Blaine, or does he just have a U. S. shipping point there? Speaking with him on the phone kind of gave me the impression that he was Canadian, eh?)
