Dave Moss March 1, 2022 at 7:51 pmLog in to Reply 12n/mm is the standard measurement. agubser07 January 28, 2022 at 1:50 pmLog in to Reply Also why use 10w oil in the forks? Why not re-valve it to work with 5w so you would have less viscosity change from cold to hot? Dave Moss March 1, 2022 at 7:50 pmLog in to Reply If you had the budget for a full revalve, that is 100% the way to go. For many, that is not an option. In that case, fork oil swap is an considerable improvement over stock. faffi January 30, 2022 at 1:22 pmLog in to Reply Excited to learn how the test ride goes! Leonard Chevalier February 13, 2022 at 6:26 pmLog in to Reply Well, THIS is a real curve ball! Been thinking since I joined up “watch Dave closely! When he does his own suspension it’ll certainly be some exotic, government project!”. NO! A Pinwall project! End of this season I picked up a 2017 R nineT Pure….only 30 miles on it! Got it cheap too due to it being factory lowered and they just don’t make factory lowered riders anymore. Hadn’t even sat on it when I was doing the paperwork since it came from out of state but that day I was able to sit on a Racer and I discovered I could have been comfortable on standard height! Swell! So you’re saying it’d be cool to go with a rebuilt? I’d probably like about 10 mm off standard just to feel involved with the project. 238 lbs. out of the shower. What do you think Dave? Dave Moss March 1, 2022 at 7:46 pmLog in to Reply Hello Leonard. Sorry for the tardy reply. I did not know comments could be left here until my webmaster pointed it out. If the lowered version is now too low, can you simply acquire the parts needed to put it to standard height or is the suspension lowered internally? If just rear shock link(s) and fork reposition, then links would be easy to replace. The dealer should be able to tell you what is involved. Settings spring tension and rebound correctly in the rear shock plus fork reposition would easily get you the 10mm you are looking for.
