Tim sez (first ride report): "I have to say the Monotube front end with the 465 RAP rear shock is over the top. It is by far the best combination of any KLR650 suspension I have ridden. I have been sucked in up holes 12 inches deep and 4 feet across all-day long and it just keeps on going. Not a hint of bottoming. I even caught some air and had a great landing. Wow!!"
There are instructions with the kit, I just checked the manula and the "A" Model forks have a drain plug but the "E" Model (08 plus) says to remove the forks and rmove the cap to drain them..
The Monotube cartridge comes assembled from progressive, the Progressive replacement springs are also a different length than the Monotube spring..
The Progressive Suspension Monotube Cartridge Fork Kit has a stiffer set of springs than stock, it also has a a great rebound and dampening charecteristics. The system is far superior than stock. The system is not adjustable. I have been riding agressively with it for the last four years and have found no need for adjustment.
