Tuning S forks for street only or sumo

Recommended Posts

Can't afford a front end swap for quite a while and have heard of plenty of folks doing fine riding and racing with non usd forks. Whats a short list of what I would need to make these respectable forks for aggressive street riding? I weight 180 with gear, Thx

Springs, springs, springs. Get the proper spring rate for your weight and riding style, and then some valving might be in order next.

Send them to Eddie and tell him what you weigh and what kind of riding you intend to do. He will spring them properly and work his magic on the valves and you will really like the outcome.

set comp & rebound stiff, test

set comp & rebound soft, test

set comp & rebound in middle (stock setting), test

compare and figure what you like, then make minor adjustments. For SM you should be on the stiffer side of the settings.

Don't forget the rear shock also.
