Add oil or stiffer springs???

Recommended Posts

What are the different effects of adding more oil vs. stiffer springs? I weigh 245 and have .49's with 400 cc of oil. It's pretty good but a bit to soft I think. I don't just want to add oil becuase it's the easiest or cheapest. I want to do what's right. I would like to keep the plushness of where it is right now in the begining of the stroke.

adding oil prevents bottoming out.perhaps you should try a thicker oil this should make it stiffer you may loose a bit of you plushness.stiffer springs would proberly make it much stiffer futher in the stroke.I am no expert but the yamaha manual explains the efects reasonably well.there may be something in the honda manual
