Well I have these R T Emulators.I'd like to know what you guys have come up with for settings.Here's mine 10wt amzoil 150mm blue spring started at 3 turns now at 1 turn.Called R T he said go to one turn and said I could go down to a 1/4 turn.But my thinking is less turns less damping. I'm there and have been for a month.To tell the truth I can't tell the difference over stock.What I'm unhappy with is the sharp edges on the road.Theyr'e are just out of control.And I feel NO damper benfit from RT Emulator.As anybody switched from RT to Ricor and what was the results.I put Ricor system in my friends KLR and U could feel the damping right out of the box, no adjustments.
TIA Bob

I have been riuding with the RT emulators since April. I have the .95kg spring, running 15wt oil, and 1.5 turns on the emulator. I love them. The front end tracks so much better, and I can attack a corner with a much steeper angle coming in than before. I also find that the front end does not dive as readily as it used to under hard braking, and it handles stutter bumps a lot better as well.

I found that harshness on my setup was reduced by increasing the damping. I switched to the gold springs from blue and I think two turns. 10 weight oil along with .95 springs, I was around 245 at the time (down about 10 lbs since.)

Tom that what I was thinking I need more damping not less.So U went too the yellow spring.That's interesting.I also have .95 spring up front.I went back & forth between stock & sonic's.I think the damping was better with stock because it allows the travel nessary for proper damping.Too stiff of a spring and U get down no action from the fork which means less damping is happening.Just my 2cent.I'm just a diesel mechanic very well vis in hyd not a supsenion expext. Or spelling..lol

I don't want my words to sound rude; they are not intended to be. I would like you to be aware of this resource, "Google": 'site stromtrooper, emulator'

Here you go. Lots of information has already be offered and written. And, there is more. I just copied, from my own Google search for you, two examples below.

The first article is fairly thorough.

Hello Bob,

Here is a link that explains how: http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-v-strom-discussion/23427-***how-search-site***.html

Here is another link that has more discussion on the topic: http://www.stromtrooper.com/stromtrooper-com-support-help-information/57035-failed-search.html

It works nearly everytime. However, some "smaller" things do slip throught the cracks.

BTW, I have emulators installed on my bike as well. Be patient with yourself in figuring out what settings work best for you. You WILL need to experiment a bit to get them dialed in just right for you. But, in the end, you will discover it will be worth it!!!!

Good Luck!

B.L.
