How is the Race Tech upgrade working for you? I've got my valves installed, but I still need to install my springs. If you don't mind telling, what weight are you suited up and which springs and oil weight are you using?

The forks are working so much better now. Bike is staying on line now even through imperfections on the road. No more pogo-ing. Brake dive is much less and slower. I am 210 lbs with no gear. Springs are 95 kg/ mm and I believe the oil weight used was 5 w

juggernet: What made you change from the race tech to the ohlins 30mm kit?
I have another post in this forum "fork noise after race tech installation" that explains everything. In summary, the Race Tech forks springs were making noise when the forks were compressed and the Race Tech Center could not get rid of the noise so I opted for the Ohlins fork catridges instead. Noise problem resolved.
