What is the REAL WORLD feel of these front progressive springs?



For tourers, is it really worth the cost?

If you are talking about the top pinch bolts, yes I would loosen them. It lets the fork cap bolts come out easier.

I found it easier to measurethe oil level for theforks while completely collapsed, as mentioned in the instructions. I then had two hands free to pour and measure while the tubes were vertical.
