anyways, i took a bunch of photo's and i think i'll do a photo write up of the procedure. like i said its not that bad once ya know the tricks. i checked the BLEEPING THREAD, and read all of the posts but they are still pretty vague. hopefully this will help save everyone some time..

thanks again for the help.


I know it is an old thread, but did Laramie do the write up of this procedure..? Can anyone point that out..? I dunno if I've been doing too much browsing that my eyes are failing to find it...

690e forks for 690r forks

First post
I have a friend at least i hope he is, but he just bought a 690r and was going to change his forks from his old bike 640 adventure (had a lot of work done to them) so is there any problems changing out my E forks to the R ones. I find the guy who had the bike before me messed them up and are way too stiff. Any thoughts out there or should i just get them re-valved???

he might have just put stiffer springs in it.. more than likely you can adjust the level of the fluid or weight .. if you do a fluid change the forks should have a mark of what rate the spring is on the end of it... if you have a suspension comany in mind it is common for them after a revalve to change the valving for free if you are unhappy or get fatter during the life of the forks they do.. not a problem swaping em either..
