Fork Oil Questions
Stock fork on a 02 919. I want to change the fluid & did some searching here & got confused. The FSM calls out a height of 155mm of Honda SS-8 measured without the springs.
A lot of references here to 125mm--why so much more than the FSM? Is the 125mm with or without springs?
I saw some references to a low cost Traxxion Dynamics "kit" but can't find anything on their web page. Where can I find info?
I'm not interested in an any high dollar mod as I am just a basic rider & this is a 13 year old basic bike but would be open to any easy or low cost improvements while I'm in there. Really my only complaint from stock is it bottoms HARD on railroad tracks, bottoms on other big bumps, & some decent brake dive. I am down to about 175 lb in street clothes & have a 04 stock shock. The 02 shock was a catapult.
