Thanks, I'll check them out. I probably should mention that i'm 225lbs. I read on 4stroke.com/honda that the eibach springs are about 20percent less. Anyone know about this? 160.00 vs. 200 for the race tech set up?

I run Race Tech fork springs and the stock rear. I am 250lbs w/o gear and have finally adjusted (after numerous attempts) the rear so that I don't bottom out except in the hardest landings/ditches. I bet you can spend the $80 on the fork springs, adjust the rear sag and play with the compression/rebound adjustments until you are pretty happy. Good luck.

Stock shock on the rear????? how did you set the sag w/o going under the recommended Length???? i adjusted down 7 turns about half an inch, and I'm close to the minimum length and still ended up with 4.5" sag.

I replied to your PM. I am essentially 1/16 inch beyond minimum which may be unecessary, and am at about 4.25 sag. I am happy with the way it works. I am running .46 fork springs and gold valves. Perfect...probably not but it seemed to work well on the last 2 rides.
