89 xr600 fork pressure?


Recommended Posts

Standard air pressure is 0 psi. You can up the pressure to compensate for soft springs, but I wouldn't go over 10 psi. might cause the fork seals to leak. Best way to fix the soft front end is to install heavier springs. You can also install longer preload spacers cut from PVC pipe to up the spring rate.

You can also adjust the viscosity of the oil in the forks. Not all is created equally, I saw an oil list posted before that showed the actual measured viscosity of the oils, and also the "claimed" viscosity. I've been meaning to change out my oil and try one of the heavier oils myself.

Maybe someone can post that list.
