you are Lame......

lets recap....a fork designed for 2 springs and you want to only run one spring....I think you are the smartest guy in the world if you can figure out what is true and what isn't.....what do you think RS is going to say to you....come on now use your head

im pretty sure RS was closed until today (monday) try calling today.

my guess is they will say run two because the fork was designed around two. you might get a cool rep who will say its possible and has been done before but the risk of possible malfuction is increased and assumed by you. so he'll probally say you void your warrenty with it or something which doesnt matter anyways cause your not the original owner

I have heard of thisa done before without a problem - I dont see why it would be. Unless it holds some part in position - I am not familiar with Boxxer internals but I just dont unserstand why this would be a problem.

Remember that RS doesnt exactly provide springs for 85lb riders - then understand where Shook is at with this.

shook_dh has started 3 threads on this subject. I suggest he go to a moto shop & talk to the service guys they would probibly have fun & give him the oil he needs at no charge. I'v been working service in the moto industry for 27 years & when kids like this wander in we never had a problem hooking them up :). Kids like this make your day when they come in all confused, its fun.
