Rear Sag

Thanks Hair,

Re: Rear Sag; I have questions of what my target should be with the 690R. The Owner's Manual Specs 70-80mm, which matches the 25-30 % of total travel (275mm) rule I've read. I'm seeing 97mm (35%), which means to me a stiffer spring is in order. Delivered is 80N/mm and a 75 and 85N/mm are available. SuperPlush suggests 90n he supplies. I'm thinking the 90N, which will steepen the angle of the front forks in the Rider Sag Position.
All this may lead to a fork Dampner, but that is another thread.
Regardless, the 22mm fork offset feels like an improvement so far.
To Be Continued.
