    The torque values specified in early model forks have also been revised down, according to my suspension guru.

    He said that too tight pinches the fork tube which can interfere with the suspension action. When the 48 mm forks were released WP went with conservative high numbers but later models the spec had come down - and he feels the forks work better as a result.

    IIRC the spec for my bike is 20-15-15 (top to bottom) so neduro's 17-12 is probably the revised number.

    yes Ned, thank you for this thread. I also found it recently while trying to install my EE CDI relocator, but it appears the 200SX CDI is different in shape than the 300's. So it wont work for my application, if anyone wants it PM me, it was only about $10.

    Great thread :clap
