Will the stock FTR bar end bolts work with just the weights?
Progressive Suspension in Hesperia, CA borrowed my FTR back in July. They took measurements and started working on springs and an adjustable shock for the Non-S model.Front fork will need new springs for my weight for sure (210 geared) since we could see it was a bit firm even at the lower settings while setting static sag.
The adjustable shock collar is a perfect mod assuming the fitment is good. I'm looking forward to the update on how it works outProgressive Suspension in Hesperia, CA borrowed my FTR back in July. They took measurements and started working on springs and an adjustable shock for the Non-S model.
They got the new spring last week and installed it. They also went with KYB 2.5 weight oil to reduce compression dampening some. I have only commuted on it (Sucky CA freeways) and it feels a lot better. Not nearly so much dive on braking and with the correct sag it feels more plush in the first part of the stroke.
They won't have spring in stock for a few weeks but if you are over 200 lbs, 14 stones, or 90Kg I recommend the upgrade.
I also purchased a Penske Shock adjusting collar from Traxxion Dynamics. I haven't installed it yet, it might need to chucked up and .5mm removed but I'm not sure yet. I hope to pull the shock tomorrow and check.
Why do I need the collar? I'm commuting as much as possible and between the tank bag, saddle bags, tail bag and back pack I have 60-70lbs of extra weight. And of course, sometimes I have a passenger on the weekend. I want to be able to easily crank up through the week and then drop down on the weekends.

No joy today! The preload collar doesn't come down far enough to let the spring retainer come off. I tried to force it but couldn't quite get it. I ordered a Race Tech spring compressor. No one had it in stock locally to it will be a week before I get it.The adjustable shock collar is a perfect mod assuming the fitment is good. I'm looking forward to the update on how it works out
