  • Need help with suspension questions

    Hi Everyone, need some help choosing new front fork setup. Just got back from Laconia and can't take the suspension issues anymore.

    Here is what I have right now. 06 Silverado all stock suspension. 99% of my riding is 2 up, getting to and from destinations we probably carry another 50-60 lbs.

    Not looking to lower the bike. Just ordered a RAP from Smoke yesterday. Racetech is pointing me to .90 springs.

    Suggestions on progressive vs racetech?

      Im running roadwing and .087 racetech and love them. Handles great with two up and no bottoming out.

        I suggest Race Tech springs and Gold Valve Emulators. You’ll be able to tune it in 100%. You’ll never get excited over this frost heaves again.


        Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

              You don't say in your profile how many miles on your ride. I would pull the swing arm bushing and the dog bone bearings and bushings. inspect and replace or regrease and reinstall. (moly grease) If you have a stock spring replace with a heavier spring. That is just the rear.
              Is the word PICTURE a picture?

                Only interested in front spring info. Rear swingarm and dog bone is good. Pretty sure rear shock is past it's use full life. Definitely has gotten worse with miles, 46432 right now. RAP is ordered from smoke since I'm looking for something I can adjust.
