    I’m sure the need for an accurate speedometer outweighs an accurate odometer but it’s worth mentioning an electronic calibrator will change the odometer reading by the same correction factor and the...

    In my opinion for performance riding the stock springs are inadequate for any rider over ~160 lbs. Preload does not affect spring rate, or "stiffen" the forks. It only affects ride height. I can't...
