DL1000 Spring rates for a big fellow?
I've been reading for hours, lots of good info on here.
I need to go through a 2006 front fork, looks like its on original oil and the seals are leaking. Cleaned the seals but, still pretty wet.
On a DL1000 with a 6 footer at around 260 pounds it seems the going recommendation is 1.0 front and like a 13.4 rear for aggressive twisty riding with camping gear?
Or would the rear be too stiff while solo unloaded? Feed back is appreciated. I think Sonic is the best deal for the front. What about the rear, go straight to RaceTech? Any other vendors?
Is there a stock diameter rear spring? Like on my DR650, you can get a direct replacement heavy spring from Procycle with no need for any adapters. I don't have the money for a shock rebuild yet, but I'll probably go with a Cogent rebuild when I can.
