PSF2 Air To Spring Conversion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have firsthand experience with this on the 16/17 250?  If so, were you pleased with the conversion?

Almost a year later and about to send my fork to MX- Tech for the Lucky system spring conversion. Anyone use this yet??

I haven’t experienced the conversion on that fork. But I did convert my Showa TAC on my 450 to a Race tech Spring system and love it! I hated that air fork, now it feels normal and consistent. I would imagine the results would be similar for your forks too

Is the conversion something the average do-it-yourselfer' familiar with basic suspension work (springs, bushings, seals, valving)

can do at home (bolt-on stuff) or, is there some machining involved?

 

As a recreational MX rider I think the '17-'18 RMZ250 would really fit my type of usage,

but despite some of it's shortcomings versus the other updated 250F's, it's those air forks which are THE turn off to me.

I had my local Race Tech Suspension guy do the work for me.  I believe the spring conversion is pretty simple, but I don't know for sure.  You could probably get a better idea by searching the suspension section of this forum, or calling Racetech

I’ve used RT specs before doing my own work. I’ve had good results except for the 4CS. I decided to go with MX-Tech as their conversion has gotten good reviews. I’m going to pull the fork and shock this weekend and get them sent off. I can’t deal with crappy forks anymore.
