Ricoh Intimidators
« on: August 11, 2019, 01:50:23 PM »
Has anyone used 41mm Ricoh Intimidators (http://store.ricorshocks.com/product_p/041-20-1001bmw650.htm) on a K75C?  I have an Ď86 that Iím thinking of trying them on to reduce the braking tuck a bit. 41 mm is the right size I think

greetings...

sounds like its time for new fork springs... ive had works and progressive... both reduced braking tuck... butts proper flush and fill has tremendous results too...

no kinda contraption is gonna work if your springs are weak and your innards are  clogged...

race tech are the only ones who make emulators for oe motobrick forks...

I watched the video and I still don't understand.

I need to start emulating a much smarter person.

While Iím inclined to just take Jís advice and run with it, wouldnít 41mm emulators from anyone be better than stock?  Have fresh oil, good seals, but stock springs.
