After running in my RR and adjusting the suspension as I go.....I have got to minimum compression on the forks and minimum preload and it still seems too hard for the road. On the fast bumpy roads near Sydney it feels like it spends most of it's in the air and at the moment it's using about 2/3 travel on the front.

Just wondering if anyone has the spring rates for a RR? and if @ 200 Pounds I need to change to softer springs?

I think they are 9.5nm spring, everyone sells 10nm and up, no one has the 9.0 as far as I know.

there is a kit that changes the spring location from the bottom of the fork to top so the replacement can be made easy.but what I have found out is that the valves need to be replaced too.

one way I am using it for now is to take most of the rebound out so the reaction will be faster which makes the bumpy roads better.

Update, while getting the first service done I got some information re standard model compared to the RR, the part numbers for all fork internals are not the same and the spring rate for the RR forks is 10.75, now I know why the front feels too stiff for the road.
