My new Race Tech springs came in the other day. While swapping
the shock spring, I noticed the shock spring was quite a bit shorter
than the stock spring.... spoke to a buddy and said that's normal. Oh
Today I was installing the Race Tech front fork springs and again, they
are noticeably shorter than the stockers. I called the Race Tech guy
and said I need to user the 2 provided washers as spacers. WTF?
First of all, the washers have to go behind the plastic cone thing, and
I can't pop the C -clip off without feeling like something is going to snap
or gouge. Secondly, do I really want to be using washers in the fork?
Shouldn't the spring be the same height as the stock spring?
I'm thinking about returning this and going with another brand. Does
anyone have any experience with Factory Connection, MX Tech, etc..?
Any help is appreciated.
