I just got back from the shop. What a difference. I weigh about 220lbs and the stock suspension would tend to bottom under hard braking. The new springs have greatly reduced dive and the bike feels more planted during cornering. I've still got to set front and rear sag and go out for a proper ride, but first impressions are very promissing. I went with the .95 springs . Next is a set of genmar risers.

At 220# if you were banging bottom on the front forks, I would be concerned that they weren't set up right. With a load capacity of 420+ it's by far one of the beefier in it's class, almost a full 50# better than the VFR, and 20#+ better than the ST3.

Let us know how you like those springs. If I trip over a bag of $$ I'll take a ride down to Georgia and see Max at Traxxion :-D
