STOP! DON'T DO IT! Trust me on this.

If you ever think about re-valving you forks yourself, DON'T. Just send them to D/K. I tried to do it myself and then ended up sending them to D/K. He did a great job and was very helpful.

Hee. Yeah, there's lots of stuff I like to try and do myself, but that wasn't one of them...I sent them to DK.

Re: STOP! DON'T DO IT! Trust me on this.

Did you get your springs changed along with the valve work?

Noticable difference in riding now?

I had the though D/K package done to my forks on the 929. Huge difference. I love the front end feel now as it's just so planted. I'm drooling over the next track day when I can really get out there and feel the difference (only place safe enough to push it to that limit anyway)

Cool, I remember ER getting his done and some complaints of harsh 'street' riding but like you said the front felt planted. I'm doing the mods in backwards order, I'll get to the suspension next.

Re: STOP! DON'T DO IT! Trust me on this.

Suspension work is definitely worth the $$$. It's not as dramatic on a bike with good stock suspension, but it transforms a bike like the SV.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Some times it just pays to let the experts do what they're good at

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!
