I emaild Race Tech; I have used their products before on other bikes but they said the don't carry what I need for the LC4. I'm also talking to a local suspension shop but he has not done a lot of 640's either so he suggested I try and get some feedback from others that have done this. C'mon, I know all of ya can't be running stock springs and I know I aint the only fatty (not naming names) riding a katoom 640
Try talking to George at ESP in La Crescenta, CA. (818)951-9144. He did my 640 ADV and I am very pleased. He ordered a special spring (rear) and had to machine a spacer for it to work. I am 225lbs, but I am also a former desert racer and ride my 640 like it's a 525. He did wonders for it!
