Vinsanity and I are talking about swapping our front suspension. Are there any considerations we need to worry about? Are the wheel spacers the same or should we swap those as well? I assume the triple trees are the same.
That's why we want to swap. I find the front to stiff for my style of riding, would love it if it felt a little softer. We already swapped rear shocks. I'm guessing the pumps have the same connection and we wouldn't have to swap those as well?
They'll bolt right up. The EXR has the XPLOR48 coil spring forks, no air pump needed or required, but you will need to get the right springs for your weigh. Its a lot softer feeling than the MXR's AER48.
Yeah, the stock springs should be pretty close for 165lbs. I'm 185-190 and they are soft. but then again I mostly ride my EXR on vet motocross tracks. The XPLOR48 is meant for offroad and soaking up roots/chatter/etc, and i think it does that pretty well.
