V4 base Showa Forks

Usually I would just swap out internals for either Ohlins or Mupo cartridge set up but have decided to re work the standard big piston Showa's .
Guys here have had great results with these forks I have had mine re valved and a extra 10 mm travel added they respond well to this .
Tracking the bike in the next couple of weeks lets see how they perform .
Thanks from youngR, Nitrouz, Macattack and 6 others

Just wondering where you are and who did your suspension! Thatís most likely the first thing I will do to mine

Wilkinson, any work on the shock ?
Did you have a chance to ride the S and compare suspension ? I have always preferred the manual stuff. Maybe I am getting old. Unless I can be convinced otherwise, I will stick to the manual suspension.

Do you only track the v4 ? Opinion on the suspension ?
Thanks from cavlino

I'm looking for the Spring rate, Spring length, and Fork info, does anybody have that data?
