Just had my 03 ST4s front forks done.
re sprung, re valved & serviced - 16.8k on em.
Amazing.
Before the compression over a sharp bump was
like getting kicked in the front wheel.

Now, its like being pushed back, gently.
can you say happier contact patch?

It was apparent, leaving the drive way, then once in the
mountains, oh yea, now we're talking!

Good to hear that, Andrew. My springs and valves are supposedly on order (that reminds me that I need to call the suspension guy today), and I also can't wait to have the upgrade done. Last week I was in San Francisco and went riding with a buddy of mine. I borrowed his VFR (Showa forks) that had the exact same spring rate as I getting put into my forks, and also had the Racetec gold valves, again just like what mine will be. The front end was beautiful! The best compliment was that it felt like the front wasn't there. It was so compliant, yet gave me a very good feel for the road. If mine turns out like that, I'll be thrilled.

I've got an appointment next week to get my forks done at BCM. I already did the rear spring, just didn't have the coin for the fronts. I can't wait to get it done!

[email protected] showed me the valves that they make,
its quite different, in theroy and function.
He runs the piston holes like twice as big with a compression stack
behind it.
The oem showa's are just fixed small holes with no compression stack to speak of.
It truly shorted the frt out!
Haven't been two up yet, but the weather getting better!
