i install the spring without revalving.
i drive on motocross tracks , not so fast but aggressiv.
the set up was the same how the manual say.
with my buddy, me and a tire on the rear rack the setup (or springs) are to soft. Everytime we hit the ground in the rear and the front was very unstable.
the next time we set down the crossover point. in the front ca. 0,75inch and in the rear 1 inch , further we took the tire from the rear rack.
after that the ride was very nice and smooth, but i think for very aggressiv riding (on moto x tracks or similar) the springs are to soft.
I set the preload like the eibach Manual say. But for two peoples and a little bit baggage you need little more preload.
For me the riding high is important and the rear frame clearance is now 330mm, like the Yamaha Manual say.
My Modell is a 2016 , Stick shift with 27" tires.
Did the same kit on my 16 . Front is a waste of money right now. Should have gone Weller or Schmidty . Stock springs were working better than these. rear is okay - still needs a little tuning.
The crazy thing about that eibach kit is now if you call Weller for revalvaving they will tell you that those rates are to soft for them to re valve around . The use a higher rate spring . Look closely at the description of the stage 2 kit and it says it’s for stock valving.
I took out 8 mm of preload and removed crossovers since "They are inactive ". front feels noticeably softer than before. maybe too soft. I am going to put crossovers back in. Hoping that if it is too soft , I can move them to bring in the main spring quicker. still learning on how adjustments change the feel of the machine.
I did all that and then some . Finally went long travel . It’s unreal how choppy those cars are I swear going slow was worse.
Going to a 30 inch tire is huge improvement in ride . I went max library they seem to have good aside wall flex and that smooths out the chopp
put preload at 10mm ( actual ) 62 mm from start of threads. collars hit springs good at 52 MM from threads.
Put crossovers back on about 1" from slider. All damping full off .
my thinking is that I can make it stiffer multiple ways if needed.
Johnson Valley tomorrow.
