Suspension revalve on 02 fe501

I am looking in to doing a revalve on my 02 fe501. I was thinking about giving it a try myself. I am considering using the Race-tech gold valve fork kit and shock kit. I will also need to change the fork springs to about a .54 rate I believe. I have already changed the rear shock spring to a 11.4 straight rate. I weigh apprx.325lbs at 6'3".

Race-tech does not list the kits for my bike but I am pretty sure it has the same 43mm forks as the KTM and the same 50mm rear shock. I would appreciate if someone could clarify this for me.

I was wondering if this sounded like a good idea. Is the racetech kit the way to go or should I look elsewhere or just work with the stock valving?

I am also going to replace the front and rear wheel bearings. I think these should match the bearings for the same year model KTM but was wondering if anyone knew for sure.

I appreciate all input and thanks in advance.

RE: Suspension revalve on 02 fe501

i believe the katoom runs 43s?

if you really have tried everything with the raer clicks then yes a revalve is next. don't know how good the rear shock work will be but they are highly rated even on katoomtalk. the 54s seem light but i don't think when you get them that they would be. job to say. there are loads of big lads suspension settings available at the top of the suspension section. it's in a section called a 'pin it'.
