A bit more info....

Keep in mind a set of RXV stock forks come with a .475 springs & there are two other options - a stiffer .50 spring or a softer .45.

The stock springs on our bike seems to be a .44 (or .46?) so I am going to try the .50 springs and see how I like it. From the research I have done the valve work is more important than the spring rate provided the springs are within proper sag settings.

I need to look up what the proper sag setting are for a bike like this. Any info is welcome (sources too please... )

I am considering putting the forks on before the revalve work so I have a reference ride on them, have the work done and feel the difference. Then make decisions from there on what is needed.
Ride more, bark less
