I like that. Where did you get that switch?
As his statement goes "highway dirt bikes" Google is your friend. He make great stuff and wish I had some if it. HDB is a member here in the vendors forum with a link and discount to his site.

Really...I figured a 7.8 would be pretty close. I guess we'll see how it works out. As you know the spring I have now is a 6.9 and sag is way off.

Not so sure a P15 would work for 175lb rider if I'm reading the Racetech chart correctly. Looks like it's for a 130lb rider. Just sayin'...

That chart is so out of date that displacements to 530cc aren't even listed; nor are the P05, P10, and P30 which are now available. The pre-08 bikes had a different shock angle and needed different spring rates to achieve the same effect.

My bike's PO was a B-level enduro/hare scrambles competitor that weighed 180 pounds, and actually sent his stuff all the way to RT headquarters to have the work done.

This version of the P15 is supposedly a super-progressive 6.8-14.0 kg/mm. Race Tech has changed the ratings on their springs several times in the last few years without changing the designations.

Just sayin'.

I'm 235ish on .46 and a pds-4 spring which is a super stiff / responsive non linear coil. Pulled it from my old 525 and it works great just have to set the sag right. I would prefer .48 up front possibly but the .46 is fine. I'm a desert and enduro style rider mostly high speed, whups, etc. setup is great..

I took advantage of a snow day and installed my clockworks tank on the 530.

Agree. My rear sub fender looks like an angry pit bull took out it's aggression on it. It came off today....new euro piece will be here Friday according to UPS.

Any one in the frozen North tried one of these ? I want one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2hPIo3FaC0 http://www.timbersled.com/snowbikekits.htm
Very cool apart from the price & the fact I live 5 nearly 5 hours away from any snow
