I have the +1” Burkhart Cycle AL7075 raising links and added a 27mm long preload spacer to the stock fork springs. I have a stock shock with the preload adjuster maxed out. I have removed the Intiminators for now, and have changed the fork oil to Mobil 1 synthetic ATF 75% mixed with Rotella 5w40 synthetic motor oil 25%. My main reason for adding the raisers was to gain some ground clearance for off-road. I didn’t expect much in the way of improved ride quality nor handling. Yesterday I rode about 75 miles of poorly maintained gravel roads, 20 miles of two track (atv) trails, and another 50 miles of pavement. I have to say I am a very happy camper.:thumbup: It just floats over the little stuff but without the bottoming on the bigger hits that was so prevalent with the stock setup. I may play around with more tuning using the Intiminators, but then again maybe not. Like I did for the forks, I think I’ll make up a spring preload spacer for the rear shock so that I can have some adjustment. BTW – I’m 250lbs with gear and the bike has a tankbag, and three 1500 Pelicans cases. While I was at it I removed and greased the shock linkage bearings; there wasn’t much grease in there. When I replace the chain I will do the swingarm bearings.
