You can also use automotive coil over springs for the rear shock if you can find the rate you need. They are cheaper too. You can find the proper spring length and the diameter is very close and Race Tech sells a cheap adapter collar so you can use them. I think I posted information on it before. I bought Eibach springs.

No Jon, I disagree -especially on the rear. I think I've 'discovered' something with suspension and the only way I can prove I'm right is for people to go back-to-back testing.

I think the whole suspension community is wrong. I am changing the whole sidecarcross community slowly.... but it is hard because they all ask reiger and reiger send them back to a soft spring again!

but I did the opposite to everyone else back in 2001 on Thumpertalk and then one man believed me and tried my jetting. then everyone copied me.

then a web site resident jetting 'jetspert' came along after I'd left and sent them all back the other way again!

the FE570 has weak rear compression damping which means that the shock will 'whap-whap' if you power out of situations (you know the one; you're in an open field so just give it 100% the max and you are on opposite lock and will not close the throttle. suddenly the bike just sinks and pings, sinks and pings and you have to back off)

a strong spring helps the damping.

Thanks from jon andersson
