Finally, the temps got up to 20 F today, so, I was able to try out my .90 Sonic springs with the Intiminators. I have no extra pre-load screwed in the adjustable caps at the moment....just the little bit of preload that equals everything I could do to get the spacers/springs pushed down enough to get the fork caps back on.
It's too cold to do a really good evaluation, but, I couldn't believe how well the bike took hits! I honestly think it's smoother than with the stock springs. I was expecting it to be a bit more "jiggly", especially with the cold temps, or, at least stiffer-feeling over the smaller bumps...but, it was a smooth as could be! I'm glad I went with the .90 after all.
The Sonic Guru really knows his stuff. Can hardly wait for warmer weather to really give them a work-out. In April, I have a big ride to Goldpoint, Nevada, where we usually do an off-road "death-ride" (it's not as hard as LA-Barstow-Vegas desert ride, but, we did have someone almost die on it a few years back...hence, the name). Having experience on that ride on my KLR650, I bet this 2012 Adventure will do just fine with this setup.
Now, to get the Intertia valve on the rear!
