let me add to this...I was chasing around air gap while assuming it was the issue with my front end being so harsh.
present setup: .90 kg racetech springs with 5 wt. oil.
After a bit of experimenting, my friend and suspension tuner determined that the spring is way too heavy for my weight (210 lbs.) and the fluid was too light.
We ended up using 20 wt. (fluid weights are relative because there aren't consistent ratings from brand to brand) to help the damping keep up with the heavy spring.
I will be calling Ed soon enough. I would love to have this done before a track day weekend at the end of the month. We will see if I can make that happen or not.
...Bologna music, there is nothing, and I mean nothing, sounding like an aircooled 2V Ducati engine pumping out the music through a full and open exhaust system. Knees buckle, conversations cease, and time stands still when such a thing passes by. -stolen from a random post from an anonymous member on esportbike.com
