Vaporware. The Gold Valve kit for the V2 is listed on Race Tech's web page, but it isn't actually available. Not even Race Tech tech support can get one. Some day....
I checked with Rich at Sonic Springs. He's examined the springs and found that they're rated 0.75 kg/mm for the first three
inches, 0.95 for the last 3, with an inch of transition zone in between. He said that would work well for my weight. I've bought springs from Rich before, and I'd buy them again if he recommended a change. (We often talk of Suzuki springs as being progressive, but I think they're all dual-rate.)
The local indie shop owner has been to the Race Tech school, and he can do the job for much less than Race Tech charges, except we can't get the parts. Maybe next winter....
