Motocross forks are sprung much heavier and tuned to take big impacts.
Mine are fabulous for my 240lbs with stock springs. Work so well I haven't even played with the adjustments yet. And take potholes like they aren't even there. And did I mention they don't dive like a submarine
when you hit the brakes?
its a common myth I might add THAT YOU HAVE TO RESPRING AND REVALVE
look at what the donor bike is designed to do first and use your judgment AND testing after installing and see what you would like to change
like mindblower my usds are a perfect match, yes they could be better, I thought I needed stuiffer springs but my sag specs are what cr250r specs recommend, and I have not bottomed out yet, despite some really hard hits, NOT JUMPS, hits
i have added oil t slow down the rebound a bit, I hae also adjusted my clickers from cr250r specs a bit too...
I agree that getting maybe 990 adventure wp forks on an xr600 then hell yeah, respring and revalve imediately
I think people get confused and assume because others have said so that you HAVE to do something
my usds swap cost me(even without selling my stock wheel or forks) $250. If I would sell those 2 things Id come out clean...
another myth is how expensice the swaps are...
