sub tanks or no subtanks?

Recommended Posts

The other day I wrecked my bike and it broke one on the hose fittings for my sub tanks. I tried to identify what type of sub tanks they were but I could not find what kind they were. So I just ordered some bleeders to plug the holes where the sub tank holes were. Am I going to notice a in performance from my forks? I have a 2004 CRF450 just got fresh 5W oil in my forks with factory connection springs, I am thinking I will little to no change at all.

Well the oil level setting when using subtanks is higher then without them so you will need to re-set the oil level accordingly. The subtanks do make a noticable difference on the bikes I have tested with. The idea is that they give you a low oil level feel (plush) over the low speed stuff but act like high oil levels on the big hits.
