Hey Roland, I cant remember if it was you who recommended adding stiffer fork springs, but.. I got some .440 springs, and had a buddy do some work for me. He added a touch of oil, removed the mid valve and installed those new springs.. The front end carries SO much better it is almost a different bike.. By removing the mid valve and adding the stiff springs, the forks ride high in the stroke but stay extremely gentle on abrupt hits without sacrificing bottoming.. With the added oil and springs, they are a stiffer set up but actually feel much softer.. That is until I need em to be stiff, like when you drop the front in the bottom of a whoop?? Still soaks it up So, in short.. The fork rides high, but right in the "sweet spot" and performs very well.. Now, Im gonna have to tune to get the shock to compliment the forks..
