Scruffy - I did the race tech springs and gold valves when I did the conversion. The advantage of the gold valves is a super wide range of compression damping adjustments. The down side to this is the forks must be taken apart each time. They give you an excellent beginning point on an extensive questionair you fill out and you go from there. For me it ended up being a little soft but a switch from the 5 wt oil recommended to a 10 wt oil fixed it just right for me. I like to run my suspension pretty firm. Just a personal preferance.On 2007-01-10 15:06, ScruffyB wrote:
My forks are from a 98. I ebayed them for $150.00 so it seemed like it would be a cheap upgrade considering how much everybody talks bad about the susp. has anybody swap just the forks first then went back for the gold vavles. Is it just a small differance so it could be done anytime or a big diff. go for the full shot now kind of deal?
