05 400S seals, driver size?, and spring opinions...

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to start making some major upgrades to my 05 400S. First thing is to spring it for a 225 pounder and replace the fork seals that have been leaking for a year.

- What size seal driver do I get? I think 39mm but I cant find anywhere to confirm that.

- Any recomendation on seal brands?

- Any springs really better than others?

I also read somewhere that another bigger guy was recommended to get springs even a little stiffer than the racetech chart says... any current opinions on that?

I'm finding the TT store a little frustrating to browse... I'm new and this is my first of many orders. Any tips?

Next steps...

FCR - MRD SSW (sounds like I should order that sooner than later...)

go with racetech, if you order their gold valves they will send you a very informative dvd on doing a full rebuild on showa forks, and if your having problems browsing the store online call thumpertalk and they will set you up with everything, they are very helpful
