I have a Brand New 650 Interceptor, 3 weeks old now and one of the 1st things I did was replace the forks springs with stiffer springs and use 15wt fork oil. Makes a night and day difference. I have a set of custom Ohlins rear shocks OTW. Will let you all know how that works out!

The front forks seem to be quite a divisive topic on this forum so any contribution is welcome. Always good to get feedback. What brand/ type of oil did you use, what volumes and which springs? And how would you describe your perceived differences?
Cheers Steve

Also what sort of weight are you, a 65kg rider compared to a 95kg(me) rider will see different behavior from the suspension

   Hi Brian, looking for you to address responses no 1 and 2. I too am interested in fork oil used, volume of oil used and how you have found your changes but I see you changes spring too. Just some input please on aforementioned matters.

Or *gulp* 108kg....................like me.    ::)

P.S. That's 240 pounds in the US.
