Re: 954 fork info/bottoming
You can't normally get the full travel of the front wheel when the springs are on even when the bike is lifted up and you pull the front wheel down. On the 1000RR topout springs prevents that. That is why it is measured separetly and the one on my forks is really measured where they mechically bottom but they have ktech pistons and valves so stock forks can bottom out earlier. I can add 120mm from the black line and calculate how much the tube should show depending on what i wan't to set the sag. The suspension guy that did my forks said Hondas normally bottom out when 15-25mm before the fork leg bottom casting.
My front end has 929 lower triple, 954 upper, 06-07 1000RR forks, 954 front wheel and discs and Nissin radial monoblocks from a Triumph 675.
