At this time I don't think I'm even gonna mess with springs or anything. Being sprung for a 180lb rider but a bike that is 25lbs lighter, I'm thinking the springs might be about right for a 205lb rider. Close enough for now. The one thing that is a concern is the plastic ics free piston. I've heard they are a weak spot. There's some billet ones out there that I might get and have installs when I do a oil change. I understood that there is no plastic in the YZ forks past 2005.
