I need to educate myself on suspension.
Tony, do we know yet if the Honda has a cartridge fork damper or a ported orifice damper? Only because of price am I thinking it might be a ported orifice damper. If it is then Ricor's setup might improve it. I used their valves in a KLR650 fork, and it was a definite improvement. It would be better if it's a cartridge fork, however. The Ricor valves wouldn't be applicable then.
