New fork springs w/o changing the fork oil?
I know there are a lot of threads concerning suspension upgrades, progressive springs, etc, but I haven't been able to get an answer to the question I have.
I weight, er um, considerably more than what the stock suspension on my Wee was designed to handle. I have been looking at getting a set of Sonic Springs are they are the most reasonably priced offering that has different spring rates available. I'd love to be able to spring for springs and some cartridge emulators, but both my budget and patience are limited. What interests me most is an easy and quick installation.
Between myself and my father, there is no problem being able to pull the front end apart and draining the old fork oil to replace with something a bit thicker. My question is if I would be doing myself any favors by just dropping in some new, heavier springs without changing the fork oil? Is the stock damper unit and fork oil at all up to the task of handling the heavier spring rates, or must I put in heavier oil?
