This past weekend I installed RaceTech springs and emulators in my 2013 Burgman's forks. I also used 15w fork oil. I did this because with just my 255 pound self sitting on the stationary bike, the front forks compressed/sagged 57mm of the total 109mm travel that's available. With only 2 inches/52mm of suspension travel remaining, it made for a harsh ride and the forks easily bottomed out when braking.
Now with the heavier 1.0kg non-progressive RaceTech springs, and the emulators installed, the forks now have 36mm of sag with me sitting on the stationary bike. I have yet to bottom out the suspension and the ride is better. It not like riding one of my BMWs with their Ohlins and Wilbers after market front and rear shocks, or my Triumph Trophy SE, but the Burgman does rides better than it did before.
How much do you weigh?
