Thoughts after spring, fluid, bushing, etc.. change
Finished the the right side fork after getting my oil seal driver tool finally from Ron Ayers and it worked like butter. Filled fluid to 106mm from top with fork collapsed, spring out, dampening rod not extended. I've read that you should have the dampening rod extended but it says nothing of it in the manual. It does change the fluid level by around 10mm with it extended but figured either way I should be in range. I used around 16oz of Honda 7.5wt fluid each fork. Instead of trying to compress the new racetech .95 springs to screw the cap on, I just pulled the outer tube up, like I read someone else had done that posted a while back. Seems to me as though the fork is slightly heavier (makes sense with heavier springs) and when compressing the fork it makes a sliding sound as the springs compresses which I never noticed with the stock springs. So far so good though, I'll finish them up in the morning and put the rest of the bike back together because I used this as an opportunity to give her a good cleaning after she sat for months while I was in Afghanistan. Looking for any feedback where I may have dicked-up before I find out I F-up and it's too late.
