***SOLD*** 06 forks and rear shock, OEM 02 handlebars and mirrors

Hey guys, I decided that I don't need the forks and shock that I haggled in when I bought my 02 9er last month. I am light enough that I don't think I will need the pre load adjustments and whatnot. I also commute and don't really ride the track so I figured I would offer up the parts to my fellow WT members. I am not really sure what I should be asking for from the forks and shock, but I have a decent idea. I am open to all offers though.

2006 Honda 919 Forks and Rear Shock

Here's my craigslist post, I wasn't sure how to load nice pics on here, so I figured CL would do.

Thanks

If you are light, the '06 rear shock is better for you. The spring is much softer than the '02.

+1! Your CL add says you're 170 lbs., I would swap the shock, it'll be an improvement over the '02 shock. You should be OK with the forks.

do u guys have any idea what I should be asking for the forks?? I was told they were very expensive like 700-800 new from a motorcycle service guy but that seems a little high to me. I'd like to give someone on here a deal, but I'd like to walk away happy too. I have 4800 in tuition thats due next week it hurts to sacrifice parts, but I am always hurting for cash come tuition payment time.

04+ forks.... id say 250ish.

seriously, i know how money can be tight for a college kid (i am one) but put that 06 shock on at the very least.... and the 04 forks are a good step better than the 02s.

Install both the shock and forks and sell them when/if you sell the 919.

yea, I believe the forks that were 04 and later all are adjustable (someone correct me if I am wrong) I just don't see where you can adjust them unlike the shock

the 04+ forks had rebound dampening adjustment (the flat head screw at the very top center of the fork) as well as preload (14mm wrench to screw in screw out the aluminum piece that surrounds the rebound dampening screw)

the 04+ forks DO NOT have compression adjustment.

02-03 had nothing as far as adjustment.


02-03 shock had a stiffer spring and ONLY preload adjustment

04+ shock has a softer spring and rebound adjustment.

They are actually ride height adjusters which is not at all preload adjustment.
The installed height of the spring does not change, just the ride height.
One day the factories and magazine guys will start use the correct words, as in Ride Height instead of Preload where the adjuster is of the ride height type.

In the process of selling forks. Shock is still not sold, I am undecided about putting the shock on or not. if someone gave me a good price, i would be willing to part with it

During this thread it is said the 06 shock is softer and better then the 02 for lightweight. I'm about 250, is it still an improvement to go for the 06 shock over the 02?

With your weight, no. If you want better, look into a penske or ohlins.

thanks for the info, what about for the front forks?
Is it worth going to the 04's or doing something else?

For the front forks with your weight, new springs for sure! If you want adjustability, you can go with the 04+. Typically for the price of the 04+ forks other than this forum, you can find f4i forks for the same price or less for even more adjustability.
