Hey all- I am about to get into my buddies' 08 CRF 450, and wondered if anyone had read the MXA summary of these forks. According to them, these are pretty much terrible forks, and their solution was to remove the midvalve spring completely, and switch to the next lightest ICS spring- they also lowered the stock oil height from 408 to 388 to help with midstroke harshness. Now, all I have done in the past with the mid is take 2 20x.10's out and replace them with a 20x .15 (thanks, Terry!!), and my other thought is to change the ICS spring to one of the new progressive ones by Merge....does anyone have any other suggestions????? John?? Dave J?? Adam P.S. this is for a local pro level racer, MX only- any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
