Well I have got my RaceTech front springs and the day off tomorrow.  I will be changing them and replacing the oil.  I just can't seem to find the website I saw once before detailing the proceedure.  Anyone have the link so that I can re-read it before I make a mess of the garage?  Also, I weight ~320 lbs. and was wondering how long I should cut the spacers and how much oil to use.  Any advice in those departments will be apreciated as well.  TIA.

canus,
I'm doing the same soon. I just got all the parts in the mail, but too many plans this weekend(including a ride!). So to prep, I've been looking for the instructions too.
Best I found is at the SVRIDER.com TIPS AND TRICKS http://www.svrider.com/tips/tips.htm ...this one is for springs and emulators but gives you good pic references: http://www.svrider.com/tips/emulators.htm
cutting the spacer will depend on what the preload height desired relative to your spring damper stack up. racetech recommends 20mm I recall. search for spacer on the forum, the formula will show up sooner or later.

Adam is working on getting his site back up very soon.

good luck, if I find more I'll pass them on. -ed

Got it all done yesterday along with the R6 throttle tube mod. Took if for a nice ride today, nothing too crazy, and I was very happy. The bike is much better in the turns and better over road bumps in the straights. I love these springs. Nw I just need my roommate to get back in town so we can set the sag and everything else to make it handle like a dream.

If you haven't setup your suspention yet, DO IT !!! 8) ;D
