how stiff are the stock 43mm forks?
I am not asking about springs. It's a given that I would need to re-spring the bike.
I ride a sv1000s now and love it but the deals on the last 919's in town have gotten me interested as I have always loved the 919. I would need to add y-pipe, pipes, bars, pc III, prolly a different rear shock, and at least springs to the front.
My Q is how stiff are the stock forks? My sv has 46mm standard forks that never flex or give me concern after I re-sprung them. Would I also have to add the cost of a rc51 or 929 front end?
I am really not interested in a racer boy usd conversion. Too costly and too much work. The Q is: are re-spring stock forks stiff enough for my considerable weight and moderately aggressive riding style?
been a lurker for a long time btw and love all your bikes.
