Surely distance comes into it as well  - so two bottles of whisky and a 200 mile trip is a lower bid than 1 bottle and a 20 mile trip.

Er, I seem to remember that I've already got a few beers in the bank of Robo, right?  :031:

"helping is more enjoyable than money.
I will always help someone.I will travel in my van with all tools,just cover my Diesel. or help someone over the phone.or ride to me."


What a fine chap Robo is!   Superb contribution.  Deserves to run his own tech company, don't you think?

P.S.   I know there's an Edmonton in Canada.  I wonder if there's a Coventry?

Robo

By adding your 23mm spacer + 2mm washer the fork spring will be compressed another one inch which in turn I guess would make the front suspension a good bit stiffer.  Apart from the fact that 25mm = 1 inch was there any other 'science' that led you to compress the spring by that further amount. 

Secondly, does your modification make a noticeable difference to the front forks i.e. is there slightly less dive when you brake or what ?

Lastly, to make life easier when I come to reassemble the innards I was to reduce the spacer to say 18mm (+2mm for the washer) whould this IYO reduce the stiffness noticeable or, put another way, would it still be worth doing a revised modification.

Another lastly :015:, Are there any other bits that you would suggest are replaced when changing the oil i.e. the bush guide and/or the oil seal stop/ring (item 12 on the Lings exploded diagram).

I intend either buying the extension collar and washer or scrounging from someone - you haven't got a spare one have you :164:.

When I do this I will be replacing the steering race bearings for the tapered 'All Balls' ones sitting in my spares bin.

Thanks in advance.

Andy
