    Is it a gas charged system like the TTX from Ohlins or is is like the NIX system?

    Thanks,

    It is very close to the NIX system, with a few updates, and larger by design. Once everything is completed I will post the details on the Konflict Vendor forum page.

    Great! I am waiting for word from Ohlins, theirs should be ready in a month. Hopefully pricing will be competitive.

    Thanks,

    I just purchased a 2013 f800gs. So im curious what that spring rate is on front fork spring. Im trying to lose weight. Right now sit in the 245 lbs range. What springs could anyone recommend for my weight? 50/50 riding.

    I took delivery on my 2013 F8GS a couple weeks ago. Have 300 miles so far and enough to know that the stock front end is pretty soft and dives down pretty drastically on hard braking. I'd be interested in finding out about the Konflict set-up.

    Also, I'm 185 pounds commando (without gear). Wondering what spring rates would be optimal and what are the stock rates? Are the fork springs progressive or constant? I may not be asking the right questions because I really don't know how they work. Back in the day we would drop in new springs and damping rods and adjust oil level. I'm sure technology has advanced past that by now.

    Stock F800GS's have .47 KG springs, I'd recommend .51KG for your weight in a straight rate spring, 100mm oil level with 5 weight fluid if running the stock internals.

    I took delivery of my 2013 F800GS about 4 weeks ago. :wings First real ride out on dirt 2 weeks ago, bottomed out front fork 3x on a slightly rocky forest service road (my excel rims from woody's held up fine :1drink) . I weigh 180 without gear on. I am coming from a WR450 and like having suspension that can eat up terrain. I ride 70% off road / 30% on.

    I am ready to order a set from Alex at Konflict as soon as I get the details. PM me when you are back online.

    Thanks for pulling this together Alex :clap

    Just a quick note, this last week I have added an adjustable pre-load fork cap which requires tooling my machine shop doesn't carry, I have it on order and it should be here late next week. Once this is in, I will complete my public R&D test set and once I receive my feedback we will release this service to the public. Around 3 weeks out at the moment.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    If anyone is interested please email me at the shop email address as I am inundated with emails and would like to source them from one location.<o:p></o:p>
    Hope everyone had a great weekend!<o:p></o:p>
