whats the general consensus on progressive springs? or would i be better to fit intimators? fitting a new wilbers rear shock soon so want to do something with the front as well
Yup - as Paul says, buy them direct from Ricor - especially as they are on sale as well :thumbup:Check with Jonathan at Rugged Roads
Failing that have a look at this thread
So which one is it?Intiminators
That's sounds odd, physics-wise. The fork can't really "feel" what direction the force is coming from, it can only feel the sum of forces which always adds up to either positive/negative (which means movement down or up) or zero (which means equilibrium and standstill). That's not to say the Intim(id)ators don't work, just that that can't possibly be an accurate description of how they workIntimidators use two-way valves to change the characteristics of the front end depending on which direction the force is coming from (bottom like a rough road or top like when braking hard).
I asked Brian at Ricor that question as well. He said there is little to no difference if you use progressive springs with the the Intimidators.Can you run the intiminators with progressive springs?
No, the progressive springs replace the small and large original Honda springs.Another question, with progressive springs, do you still need the small spring on top?
I have Intiminators on my RD07A and forgot where I heard the source but your old clapped out OEM springsThat's what I thought.
I already have progressives, considering intiminators since I'm reverting to the stock front end.
Have you considered ebay. $25 shipping to France.I've just checked the shipping costs on the Ricor website, $124
Is anyone else thinking of buying a set and wants to potentially share postage costs?
