Suspension / rr1 level 1 front forks are great
« on: October 20, 2020, 04:51:20 AM »
Thanks RR.
installed the RR1 spring 5.0 kgNm,valves and dampening road myself with 10w oil fin my 2019 CB500x successfully myself in one morning. I agree the feel of the ride is steadier and eliminates/lessens the pogo or diving of the front when braking. I have been riding the twisties mountains around Medellin Colombia. I thank RR for offering this product, and Jenny Morgan, Blancolirio for advice.

Still need to try in the unpaved.

I plan to follow up this improvement with the rear shock level 1 later.

Thank you for prompter's reply. :002:
Please need further advise on RR1 rear  shock spring rate.Undecided between 110 or 120 kgNm spring for level RR1

I weight 85 kg with gear plus 15-25 luggage  when solo
I would travel with wife and 2 cases (Occasionally ) adding another 70 kg.

Currently my OEM rear shock preload is fully loaded at max. (level 5) and get around 40 mm rider SAG when solo. If a loose the rear preload to level 3 or less my rider SAG increases to 50-60 mm.

So I suspect my OEM rear shock spring is too soft. I understand the OEM spring is on avg. progressive 110 KgNM.

If I go for RR2 suspension option I probably should choose 120 Knm spring, but for the RR1 shorter undecided between the 110-120 KGNM options.

Suspension / RR1 level 1

Proud owner of a 2019 CB500X which I intend to ride around Colombia towns.
I am on the verge between RR1 and RR2 levels. RR2 is my choice if I had not to give up my already installed jack and engine guard.
I have the following question on regards to the RR1 Tractive rear shock.
is the RR1 tractive rear shock and emulsion type shock. If it is emulsion I would disqualify this option as it tends to heat up much more than piston type shocks, therefore lasting less time.

My issue with RR2 is because I am in Colombia, need to import all items including RR Guard and give up the Jack.

My intention is to travel around Colombia unpaved roads and natural washed outs and obstacles. Where the RR2 upgrade would shine.
