A while back I asked about heavier spring without a total re-valve. Well I had my rebound increased and put in the heaviest springs I could get in the front. Money being tight I pulled apart the forks and did everything my self except the re valve, I took it to Friend the does this on the side and had him just do the rebound in the cartridge. Put in new Moose Racing fork seals, 5 wt Bell Ray fork oil and put back together.

Went out in practice, 50 yards from the gate and hit the dirt. :ride: Got up and rode about 2 laps came in and backed every thing out about 4 clicks. The bike handled just great. Did not do anything to the rear but backed off the compression about 1 click. :ride:
I run about 240#. I'll get more info later.
