Springs with no Re-valving
Posted November 26, 2002 - 01:13 PM
What is the ramifications if I simply respring my bike without getting new valves put in? Am I upgrading my suspension or not? If I have to re-valve I will (Considering BBR, as they have a shop in Kent, Wa, which is about 120 miles away) but if I can save the cash I would like to. Any insight will be appreciated.

The short answer is to go ahead and put the springs in. Many people are completely happy with the stock valving and springs appropriate for their weight. You can also play with the oil height and weight to improve the feel over stock.
Before I had mine revalved, I ended up at 115 mm height with Enzo 01 oil. Now I have stiffer springs, a revalve, and oil height still at 115 mm.

Definately, put the correct springs in. You cant truely evaluate the suspension until you have the correct springs in anyway.

While on the RaceTech website, I applied for their rider support program, and they offered me a 20% discount on all parts and work, so I will be sending them all of my stuff, and I'll let them sort it out.
Looks like you have a nice ride, Mr Toyz. We should ride here in the near future. Going to have to twist my arm fairly hard to get me to ride Reiter Pit again!
