If you drill a hole in that thing you can use it to lock your bike and you can save a little weight :-)

I'm getting a bit worried about you.

Do you maybe ever fall off on purpose?

LOL!!!! My point is that your steering stop looks very sturdy.

It's only 8mm thick (oo err)

Just waiting on fork guards now and she's good to test! Feels massively firmer than both sets of my marzocchis. I've checked the spring rates on a calculator and they are about .45 / .46. considering I've been running .46 on the off-road bike and .5 on the road bike, these feel mega firm!

Sounds like it is time to become good with the KYB SSS jigsaw puzzle.

I have had mine apart about 8 times now and I think they are just about right

I just paid the KTech man for club settings and never needed to touch it since a click or two.

I'll find out when I take it for a ride. Hopefully today. Moving house on the next 2 weeks hopefully so will have no time to get them apart if I need to.

The thing that gets me is that there seems to be very little sag. The springs are either .43 or .46, which are still softer than what I had in the marzocchis, but very little free and race sag with no preload spacers?? How do I adjust preload on these?

Took her out this morning for a quicky. So much better! A bit harsh on really small stuff, but otherwise so much better!!

I went through this high preload problem with my YZ SSS forks when the RaceTech springs were too long. I was told by several people in the suspension industry that I should not cut the stock spring perches more than 5mm (to reduce the preload) because that can apply lateral force on and potentially pinch the inner chamber fork tube which can dent or bend the tube causing restriction.

While I purchased the race perches that I was able to cut to lower the preload more than 5mm, it would have been easier to buy the correct KYB springs that come with the correct length for 5mm of preload. https://www.suspensiondirect.com/shop/sdetcv24-set I also needed to open up the windows to match the stock windows.

You can get parts from https://www.suspensiondirect.com/shop/ or http://www.technical-touch.com/
Based upon my spring length problem with RaceTech I will be avoiding them in the future.
