    I used the lightest spring supplied at 2 turns and thought it was too stiff. So after speaking face to face with a Racetech guy at a show, he sent me a set of even lighter springs (I think they were silver) for free.

    Part of my problem, too, is that my fork seals seem to have too much stiction.

    Yeah I kept the stock spacer so I got an extra 1/2 preload. You can always go back and cut it with out even having to drop the forks. I did Blue springs, 2 Turns...? It's hard to actually determine that... and 15 wt Maxima oil.

    You can just take the rubber out of a Sparkplug socket and put it on an extension backwards for a 17mm hex for the axle.

    Sounds good. I completed today but still need to mount. I went blue, 4 turns, 4 holes in the emulator, 6 in the damper and 10wt oil. About 530ml each fork. Kept the space the same as well. Figured it would be good with my additional weight. (240lbs)

    Good to know. I'll have to test a little and see what I think. I'm hoping the blue, with 4 holes in the emulator and 10wt oil will work. Otherwise I'll pull it and decrease emulator preload to 1 or 2 turns before looking to get the silver spring.

    Per the Racetech guy, don’t bother going below 2 turns. At that point get the lighter spring.
