Well I finally got the new tires ( pilot powers 190/55 rear )on my bike and have been fooling with the suspension a little. One of my buddies has been ridding and racing bikes since he was a teen. All off road racing but he has been ridding the road since he was old enough. We put the rear spring on full soft and backed all the rebound and comp settings all the way off and back up one turn. It feels pretty good but still I only got 23 to 25 mm of sag. This bike has had a shim put under the top of the rear shock mount. 2 or 3 mm or so. I am 5'8" and 140 lbs and don't plan on tracking but I live in the Allegheny, and Blue Ridge Mtns. So all the ridding I do is in pretty twisty stuff. I am an intermediate rider at best and I am really enjoying the feel and power of the RC a lot!! :rockon Other than the shim the suspension was stock and untouched when I bought it and the bike had the original tires and only 3467 miles. You pros what do you think and what advise would you give me. I am thinking of changing the rear spring but would like to know how big of a job it is to do? THANKS Hoovy

Another ????

I guess I should also ask what the OEM spring is rated at and what should I change too, if I do? :confused: HOOVY

One of my buddies had them do some work and he was very satisfied. They have done his forks and rear also and he said it was like night and day. I am going to check into that. Thanks again to all for their help, this site has been more than helpful. :rockon:notworthy:notworthy:rockon HOOVY
