I'm cornfused, are you selling a set of forks with cartridges or are you looking for a set of cartridges? Damn grammar and sentence structure. Always making it difficult to communicate.

What are you looking for to spend on stock cartridges? I have them but not to trade as I already upgraded.

How do you weight? If you aren't Advance group, just swap out the springs of your stock forks and change the oil to something thicker. prob save yourself 1200 bucks because the Ohlins cartridges are 1200 alone + install. For a fraction of cost, you got a good setup.

Suspensions are a little more complex than just oil and springs.

VERY true.. For most, being able to tell what the suspension needs to meet the riders, course conditions is even more complex.

Reading the tires seems like magic to me.


Reason I was considering heavier springs is the fork markers.
On heavy breaking I use a whole lot of fork.
Otherwise I'm real please with the setup.

You should use the whole fork travel. You shouldn't be bottoming out consistently. An occasional bottom out is fine. I would rather have a softer spring that I control with dampening than a stiffer spring where you lose feel for the road.
