Fork Spring Stiffness Question
Have a line on some used Race Tech 1.0 springs off a 05 Wee for a good price. For my weight (~200 lbs), these will be stiff according to their spring rate calculator. Couple of questions: I have a 2012 model and will these springs still fit (i.e. are fork diameters the same)? Also, I ride primarily on gravel forest service roads and have not noticed much of an issue with the current suspension set up other than a tendency for occasionally bottoming out on hard hits. Could I expect to achieve a better set up than stock if I installed these springs with a lower weight oil or other "tuning"?
