RaceTech Springs-929-cutting spacer
Awhile back I installed RaceTech springs in my bike (929) with great results. Since then I traded those forks for a set of DK forks which had Ohlins springs in it, but not for my weight. Because they were not the correct weight springs, I bought new RaceTech springs which I've installed. I tried emailing DK about the proper amount to cut off the spacers but did not get a response. I think I ended up cutting off too much even though I measured the stock spacer and springs then matched that to the RaceTech springs, but the front end is diving too much, therefor I don't think it was measured correctly. As mentioned earlier, when I installed my first set of springs, DK supplied me with the correct amount to be cut, and it felt perfect. A lot of story to get to the question...
Questions is, does anybody know how much needs to be cut off the spacer (per DK)?
