1999 FE - springs and setting tipps?
Have bought a 1999 FE 600.
Front: WP Extreme 50 mm
Rear: PDS Shock
I want to use them mostly on a cross track, want a suspension stiffer than enduro, but not so stiff as a cross bike. something in the middle (cross country)
on all accounts I am heavier as the normal 78 kg rider.
I will not spend much money in the bike, is only a compromise (and second bike)
Does a 71/90-260 spring fit to this shock?
(parts manual say spring length is 250 mm)
How to get stiffer springs for the WP Extreme fork?
Or does springs from the 48/43 mm USD fit?
Friend has a 43mm fork from a FE600 /2000.
But only the legs, without the clamps and fork stem?
Can I do anything withit?
(but different axles fÃ¼r the wheels)
thands in advance for all tipps.
