150 pound rider: need to change fork springs?

Recommended Posts

Racetech says I need .45 springs...am I going to feel a difference from the .44 stock springs or should I just worry about revalving?

Also, what's the stock oil weight on the forks and what should I change it to?

btw, its an SM and I'll be riding mostly street/track with a little trail stuff.

You may or may not want to do the springs. OEM should be about right for you. Stock oil weight is 5w, some prefer 7w or 7.5w. Revalving is not a bad idea as the OEM valves leave a little to be desired.
