a while back i went with hagons progressively wound springs and they reccomended their 10wt fork oil.
night and day difference! very little dive under braking and a smoother ride.
safer under hard braking too
stuck with the standard rear shock as i only weigh 210lbs and ride solo. on max preload it works fine.
I thought mine was fine with oem tweeked riding solo too...until I installed progressive 465..even at 2 it is a smoother ride and I feel the road better..imo
Have to agree. I can't believe what a difference the rear made!
It's hard for me to tell how much better my fronts are now that I did this same switch, because they were just shot before this. All my wobble on the highway is gone, even behind trucks (ok just a little, but before it was scary.
) Still dives just a little, but not like it used to.
Oh, and I don't have to pull up on the bars after I've come to a stop to get the forks to raise up again.
My tires are still kinda shot from the bad suspension before, pretty badly cupped, but the ride has smoothed right out, which is amazing.
