SUSPENSION SPACER.
Permalink  
 


Just a quick one,
Has anybody ever increased the length of the spacer at the top of the front suspension legs to make the suspension stiffer.
As using a thicker oil would only slower the rebound im thinking of inreasing the length of the top spacer with washers or a longer tube to harden the downward pressure,
Anyone with any thoughts or tried this.

Done it loads on different bikes in the past, if you are testing you can use 2p pieces stacked on top of each other to get the desired effect then make something up thats the same length.

A piece of nylon bar cut to length / machined down to size would be ideal as its strong and not too heavy - alternatively get a new set of progressive springs from a company like Hagon / Maxton for around 70
