  7. Modifying the rebound spring of the XRV750 fork

    Africa Twin
    Hello guys, I have some evil thoughts about cutting in half the rebound spring or even more - ordering custom ones to be made if all is OK with the shorter length. I am talking about part number 10 here Now this is because I have good sag set up now, but when I put fork emulators they will...
