Gold Valve Emulator "adapter"
SO, I can't seem to get an answer that I find acceptable. Some say you need an adaptor for the gold valve emulators. My local Racetech certified shop says you do. he also wants all new seals and wipes if he does my bike...Oh and 4 hours shop time.
Racetech's web page says that the '09 needs adaptors.
all how to's I have seen shows nothing about adaptors and after contacting Blair at SVRP he says I can order them but don't need them.
does anyone have an answer. yes, no, what's the difference? is it safety, productliability, do they make for an easier installation?
I want to get these ordered but want to make sure I have everything in one pocket before I grab a wrench.
I'm not racing, I'm just looking to tame the dive when I have to brake. My preload is set at 41mm right now but I hit the brakes in an emergency and I come close to bottoming out the suspension.
I hit a pretty good bump on a one lane bridge last weekend on 42/skyline from timothy lake while two up that slid my travel indicator (ziptie) within about 20 mm of the lower triple.
'09 Wee, Orange. Uh, Er...White, No, Wait, ORANGE!
