First ride on KYB twin cartridge forks

Went to Motocross Country Club yesterday afternoon to get my first ride on the KYB TC forks.  I’ve done one revalve on these to take them from an MX set-up to an offroad set-up.  After yesterday’s ride, I am seriously considering not messing around with shims anymore – I’m that happy with the performance!

To sum it up – the faster you go, the smoother they feel.  I found myself seeking out logs and big rocks and hitting them at difference speeds, I was amazed at how these forks soaked up those hits.

The one area that the KX forks outperformed the KXF forks are at super slow speeds, like 5 mph slow.  At that pace, the KX forks were more supple over rocks.  But everywhere else, the KXF forks outperform the KX.

I really wish I did this modification a year ago instead of messing around with the KX forks.
