considering lighter fork springs. anyone wanna trade .85 for my .95?
Looking for some advice as well as a potential trade.
Just got my bike. PO weighed about 35 lbs more than me (230 vs. 195) and had a set of racetech gold springs .95 installed. He recommended that I step down to .85.
I'm wondering if anyone here might be interested in a straight trade.
I'm also wondering if anyone weighing 195 has replaced their springs, and what spring rate they went with and how it feels.
i haven't yet checked my sag, which i know i ought to, but i couldswear just from eyeballing it when i relax onto the saddle that the front end of the bike doesn't budge... which doesn't seem likely.
If not for it's 500 lb. weight, limited ground clearance, spindly handlebars, close fender fit, short suspention travel, exposed oil filter and forward weigh bias, it would make a great dirt bike.
