We have been testing with this NEW model since the day it came out. The new 49mm spring forks are like the 2017 Honda forks we have been working with for 2 years. The KX version is too soft initially and blows through the first part of the travel causing harshness when coming into corners and on downhills. We revalve them to stay up in the stroke and move slower initially as well as altering the rebound for more control and better tracking.
Lets be honest, nobody loved these forks. They were complicated to tune and never worked great. Through lots of testing, we have the answers. A big part of the problem is too much internal stiction. We install a kit that fixes that and rework all the internals to provide forks you can live with..
Are completely reworked to stay up in the stroke, provide plusher action and improved bottoming resistance. Rebound valving is matched to correct spring rate/air pressures and then refilled with the just the right amount of oil.
Not only does the shock have to work well with the power connected to it, the shock has to work in harmony with the forks, balanced together. All of our suspension modifications take this into account. We do each shock considering your weight, skill level, what type of tracks, and what we are doing to the forks. In addition, we have almost 40 years of experience bleeding shocks properly so you can count on consistent air free performance.
